Don’t Think to be first concert film to feature Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
British electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers will release a film of their headlining show at Japan’s Fujirock Festival from July 31, 2011. Don’t Think is the first concert film to be filmed with Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
Director Adam Smith, a longterm visual collaborator of the duo, used twenty different cameras on stage as well as in the crowd to film the concert and features the natural beauty of the Japanese mountainside where the concert took place.
“I wanted to capture what it is like to experience the show from right in the middle of the crowd as well as showing and combining the visuals featured in the show with the footage we captured on this one night; to see how the music and visuals emotionally affect and connect with the audience,” Smith said.
The film will be released Feb 1 on more than 500 screens in over 20 territories, but a special screening has been set up on January 26 to be shown in 20 different cinemas around the world. Don’t Think is produced by Marcus Lyall and Lee Groombridge for RSA Films. ML Studio is co-producing.
