Seattle is still top 5 for Beatles. McCartney will be in the area next week or so too! The Beatles are looking for your priceless home movies of the band. The group's company, Apple, is currently in the initial stages of developing The Beatles Live Project!, which will focus heavily on fan shot and recorded personal momentous.
The band issued a statement reading in part:
"Digging deep into the world's TV and radio archives and fans' basements and attics, the hunt is on for never-before-seen media captured during the Beatles' concert tours dating back to October of 1963 -- when the name 'Beatlemania' was coined -- and continuing through the Beatles' final concert in Candlestick Park (August 29th, 1966). The project has commissioned global research teams and developed social media tools to collaborate with the public, concert goers, and students -- in every location where the Beatles performed!"
"The ultimate goal: to combine footage, images, music interviews, and stories in a definitive, emotional and visceral feature film about 'Beatlemania.' Production company OVOW Productions Inc. has assembled a global team of archivists, collectors, information specialists, artists, social media strategists, amateur media groups, Beatles fan clubs, writers, academics, and film restoration experts to support the activities in the field. The research will be active through December of 2012." firstname.lastname@example.org
