ROCK AT NIGHT wonders if this is the new replacement for music documentary filmmaking? This fan-made film was compiled from cell phone videos at The Cure concert performed in Poland in 2016. Even the screenshot photos taken from the film look to be high def. We professional photographers are being replaced by cell-phones so this is the next realm! Check out the story below!
Hundreds of The Cure fans contributed video and photos to a project by a Polish fansite to stitch together an enormous amateur multicam of the band’s concert in Poland in October 2016 – and they’re now offering the nearly 3-hour film to watch online and as a free download to fellow fanatics.
The project was undertaken by the fansite thecure.pl, which released the completed film over a month ago. Since that time, the film has been downloaded nearly 10,000 times. Now it’s available to watch online too.
The organisers say their goal was to assemble the best quality audio and video possible and, in doing so, they gathered more than 350GB of footage, which included everything from phone clips to Blu-ray and 4K quality files. They also obtained near-soundboard audio to use over that footage. These efforts have resulted in the production of a full document of the 31-song, 2-hour-43-minute concert — which you can download in a variety of video formats, including HD, from their website, or watch below…

The Cure Performing “The Forest”
I grew up in a household full of rock music, studied journalism in college, and then became a scientist.Although my science career has served me well, music has always played a major role in my life. I grew up reading "Creem" magazine; I play several musical instruments as a "hobby";and it seems a camera has always been in my hand. Now, I am combining what I love the most--music and photography--serving as editor of Rock At Night. I travel between the US and UK seeking my dream! My motto: life is short...no regrets. Chyrisse
