One of the great things about the open mic at Stories on the Square is the wide variety of people that show up to tell. In October, local filmmaker and comedian, Isaac Deitz, told a story from his childhood. The show was appropriately themed “haunted,” and Isaac shared a couple of anecdotes about growing up in the Deitz household. He and his brother, Chad, spent a lot of their free time figuring out ways to scare each other. Nowhere in their house was safe- they stalked in hallways, hid in the attic, and waited in the bathtub. It was also imperative to make sure that neither brother was loud enough to wake his parents (though it wouldn’t be a good story if they didn’t get in trouble at least once). As it turns out, they come by it honestly. In Isaac’s final story, Papa Deitz makes an appearance that tops all of the other effort made by the Deitz boys. Check out the Stories on the Square website for Isaac’s story (we’ll post it soon, promise).
Isaac is best known for his work with a variety of musicians all around the country. He’s made music videos in all types of genres, and recently teamed up with Atlanta favorite Molly Parden on her song “A Song for my Mother.” It’s beautiful. Watch Molly’s video and more of Isaac’s work here. He’s also a funny guy. Follow him on twitter.
