The Beatles go to Cannes
Clips from The Beatles' Live Project documentary will be shown to prospective buyers in Cannes, France next week. The film is currently in post-production. White Horse Pictures and Studiocanal are the companies representing the film in Cannes.
The film is still only known under its working title and there has been no announcement about when the film will be released. No wonder, they haven't got a distributor anywhere yet. Still, the film will be completed this year. Giles Martin is in charge of producing the audio side of the release, as far as concert sound is concerned. Will he be able to create an immersion surround sound from the raw material? Is he going to record office girls screaming the names of John, Paul, George and Ringo and overdub it to audience footage again?
Producer Ron Howard's idea is to give fans an "all access VIP pass" to the Beatles concerts, we are hoping that this is something he will be able to fulfill. Hitherto unseen concert footage has been promised. An earlier released promotional clip from the film just used familiar footage from Washington D.C. 1964 and Shea Stadium 1965.
