by Naman Ramachandran
- New documentary to follow Life In A Day model
Buoyed by the reception accorded to Life In A Day [+see also:
film profile], Kevin Macdonald’s documentary created by stitching together short films submitted from around the world, Ridley Scott Associates, Black Dog Films and Scott Free London are calling on all Bruce Springsteen fans to make their own film about Bruce and what he means to them. Directed by Baillie Walsh (Flashbacks Of A Fool), Springsteen & I are seeking fans’ most personal insights, abstractions and reflections on how Bruce Springsteen and his music has affected their lives.
Producer Svana Gisla said in a message to Springsteen fans, “We are searching for a wide variety of creative interpretations, captured in the most visually exciting way you can think of, whether you’ve been a hardcore Tramp since 1973 or have heard one of his songs for the first time today. If you have a parent, a sibling, a neighbour or a colleague who has an interesting tale, we want to know about them. If you can’t use a camera or are not sure how to capture your story then get in touch and we will link you up with someone who can!”
The producers will accept submissions in any format as long as they are less than five minutes in length. The production team will edit the footage to feature length and are therefore requesting that submissions be raw footage rather than edited material.
The feature music documentary will be released in 2013.
The producers are Ridley Scott Associates and Black Dog Films. Liza Marshall and Jack Arbuthnott, the Scott Free producers behind Life In A Day will Executive Produce.
