Not Content With Having Announced The Release Of A Book, The Canadian Tween Idol Now Also Has Got A Movie In The Pipeline.
Scary news, huh?
Well, it gets even worse (or better, according to how maliciously you like to laugh out loud).
The movie will be in 3D.
“Inception” wasn’t in 3D. “The Dark Knight Rises” won’t be in 3D.
And Justin Bieber’s biopic will.
That’s all the more ridiculous because the movie will feature tons of homemade clips that have the shoddiest quality you could imagine. These will be interspersed with interviews and live performances, obviously. But they make the release of the movie in 3D all the more difficult not to scoff at.
This post wouldn’t be complete if I had omitted the movie’s delectable trailer. Sorry, guys. I promise to review a classic rock record tomorrow in order to redeem myself.
No music project is unviable any longer – the amount (and diversity) of social networking sites currently available has wiped the word “impossible” away from the dictionary of music. If you wanted to assemble a band together that plays only one song – a 45-minutes rendition of “The Crystal Ship” – you are not only going to gather the musicians, but you are also going to get some supporters. That is, now that viral videos are all the rage people have license to do mostly whatever they fancy from the comfort (and safety) of their living rooms. The chances of a random drunk flinging a bottle of Newcastle Brown at the band are not just minimized – they become non-existent.
But if you think about it, not every angle is already covered. There is one in particular that has been unattended until now: the creation of a compelling music video. And that is all the more surprising because the potential a clip can have when it comes to doubling the expressive force of a song is colossal.
This site hopes to do something about that. It will let you create video projects that will then be scrutinized by directors, and those who feel that they can bring your original vision to fruition will get in touch. You can then decide whether or not you are hiring them. Continue reading →
"The Kids Are Alright" Was Directed By Super-fan Jeff Stein. Its Theatrical Release Was In 1979.
The music of The Who came from them being one of the truly unique ensembles in the history of music. If there was ever a band with a million tales to tell, it was them. The way those guys were together and constantly at odds was something that their music did not necessarily convey, until one (correctly) interpreted the outrageous volume as a telltale of bottled emotions and anger. But there was also enormous love and belief lying at the heart of it all. And that was something which just had to be told.
“The Kids Are Alright” (1979) was assembled with that objective in mind. The idea was to show what made the band so distinctive, and why it was that their fans were so loyal. The movie itself (directed by a then-young Jeff Stein, and released shortly after Keith Moon died) achieved that aim, but only in a certain sense: it captured their offstage irreverence in full flight by the inclusion of interviews and specials that were shot through the years.
