Default What ever happened to the US festival documentary?

Wasn't there talk a few years ago about the US festival documentary that was going to feature videos of Fleetwood Mac's show? Has there been any updates?

Dude, you're one of the people that periodically asks about it:
http://ledge.fleetwoodmac.net/showth...ht=festival%22
http://ledge.fleetwoodmac.net/showth...=festival+1982

However on the facebook pages there's not been any update since last November and it was unrelated:
As heard tonight by a world class drummer.." The guitar players are empty calories the drums and bass are the meat and potatoes"
Please post your thoughts!!

Really hope this happens. I'm tired of getting my hopes up only to have them dashed by the passage of time and no product delivered. I really got my hopes up years back when Spin did a cover and spread on outdoor festivals. As an attendee, I was contacted for quotes by the writer who got my info off an obscure website posting. He seemed positive more performance material would be coming out as interest had been building. So far all I've ever found was the compilation DVD from '83 and a few full performance CDs, which The English Beat one is quite good! Money talks, as they say... and it's clearly the issue on this one.

I asked on their Facebook page about the Fleetwood Mac material. They answered:

I received the e-mail with the info for backers, you other beackers should have too, if not check the spam:

FOOTAGE & MUSIC & BOOKLET, OH MY!

Posted by Glenn Aveni (Creator)

Hello friends, backers and US Festival-ers. Glenn here with an Update.

1. BOOKLET - this is an awesome FREE bonus! Some who booked thru our Facebook page(s) know about this, but now I am telling EVERYONE WHO BACKED because I have decided that EVERY BACKER gets a booklet! What is the booklet? It is a 96 page (minimum) 4-color 8 1/2 x 11 keepsake of The US Festival like no other - because it is full of stories and photos FROM YOU - the people who were there! This is free, it is a bonus Reward, no cost to you, no extra shipping.

SO - THIS IS A SHOUT OUT FOR MATERIALS!!

If you want to submit for inclusion in the booklet, I set up an email account at usfestbooklet@gmail.com. For stories - 100 words maximum (unless the story is so awesome you need more words). For photos - jpg or pdf format only. Please include 10 words with each photo so we know for sure what we are looking at. I realize some of you may have sent stories and/or images to Kickstarter or Facebook months ago - sorry, you need to re-send them to the website I just mentioned. I cannot guaranty that what you send will be included, some of it is luck as to who sends us something similar, but I can tell you that Backers take first priority. PLEASE DO NOT SEND A HUNDRED PHOTOS - pick the best (up to 6) and limit it to that. Anyone who pledged at the $40 level and above will get a physical booklet, and anyone who pledged at $28 or less - downloads - will get an e-booklet via download. Any questions, feel free to ask here or at the website. But please please - only submit materials through the website and don't forget 10 words on each photo.



IMPORTANT NOTE: even though the artist's rendering above says '82, and even though the film is about '82 - the booklet will cover BOTH years, so stories and photos from '83 are very much welcome.

2. FOOTAGE - very happy to announce we have secured a great flat-rate deal with a major footage house which will allow us to have about 15% more footage from the show than I expected and more bonus footage. This is what we call BRoll, it's everything except the music - crowd shots, crowd interviews, talent interviews, pan shots ... very happy about this.

3. MUSIC - it's easiest to strike deals for music once the first deal is done, so it is best to strike the first deal with the top artist. There are several we could call the top artist, I went with The Police. I don't want to give away too much info, but you will see - in the film - their famous medley of Message in a Bottle into Can't Stand Losing You into Reggatta De Blanc and back to Can't Stand Losing You. More Updates on music and bonus footage soon.

IS THERE A DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR THE BOOKLET? Yes. May 31st. You have the month of May. Again - any questions - hit me here or on the website. Submissions only via the website. Web address again ... usfestbooklet@gmail.com



- Glenn
Here I am celebrating the clearance deal w The Police

I don't understand. I thought this was completed a while ago. Maybe someone can post in simple, non-hype terms what exactly the timeframe is. I will buy it when it's on DVD, which looks to be no time soon, if what I am inferring is correct.

The documentary itself is completed, the bonus music, which is the extra material is to be finished to arrange. Basically burocratic stuff.
