THINKFilm has acquired all worldwide rights to AWESOME; I FUCKIN’ SHOT THAT, a Beastie Boys concert film. A formally innovative feature film experience, it was directed by
Nathaniel Hornblower (a.k.a. “M.C.A,” a.k.a. band member Adam Yauch) and produced by Hornblower and Jon Doran. THINK plans to open the recently-completed film in Spring, 2006 following significant festival presentations early next year.
On October 9, 2004, the Beastie Boys handed out 50 cameras to audience members at their sold-out performance in New York’s Madison Square Garden. These 50 different perspectives shot from the point-of-view of the audience take the viewer deep inside the world of a live Beastie Boys show, prismatically and kinetically capturing the experience of a live musical performance like no film has ever done.
THINKFilm will release the AWESOME DVD next summer.
