Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That! (2006) - "What time is it? Time to get ill!" - Beastie Boys
While checking out a phonecam video clip of his band on the Internet three days before their October 9, 2004 show at the Garden, Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys suddenly had an idea. In the next three days, they purchased fifty analog cameras with the intention of handing them out to fans to shoot the band during the concert. Another six of their friends were armed with digital Panasonics. A couple of professional installations were added for good measure.
Adam posted his intentions on their website and fans with seats closest to matching the desired coverage pattern were invited to arrive early to pick up their cameras. They received only one instruction: keep filming.
A couple of hours later, the cameras were returned and the tapes were gradually edited together to create a unique 90-minute film of the timeless Beastie Boys and their loyal fans.
Fun to watch, the music is great, and the sound is surprisingly good.
