Kickstarter campaign started for the 'Beautiful Noise' shoegazing documentary (with a Robert Smith interview) that's been in the works for the past 8 years. We've been following this for over 4 years now, and you can read some of Eric's previous updates here. There's also a post about it on The Cure's Facebook. (Thanks John, Keith, and @Pjotrke)
Update: Only a few days left to help get this funded. They've added this clip of Robert talking about the Cocteau Twins. (Thanks Laurent)
Update: The project has reached it's goal and will be funded! Congratulations to all involved, and to all who contributed! (Thanks Shawn)
Update (05/22/13): Eric finally posted an update last week.
Update (02/26/14): Looks like we are finally getting close to a release! From their Facebook - "Good news everyone, we are finalizing the end credits now and prepping for final post. So, if you are a Kickstarter supporter who pledged for a credit in the film, please make sure to respond to our email thru Kickstarter and verify your name by Friday the 28th. More news to come soon!"
Update (05/01/14): The latest - "Just a quick note to let you all know the progress on the film. The music clearances are finally done and with that 15 month odyssey behind us we can happily move forward towards the release. The documentary is now being mixed on the sound stage and we are preparing for a summer 2014 festival release.
Kickstarter rewards will go out after the festivals, during the home video release stage. When the rewards are about to be sent out we will send you a survey confirming your addresses.
Thank you so much for helping us to make this happen and for your continued patience! This is an independent documentary made for the fans without any corporate backing. More to come soon...Thanks again, Eric & Sarah"
And now we have a debut date! May 31st & June 1st at the Seattle International Film Fest.
Update (05/08/14): International premiere will be June 8th & 9th at Sheffield Doc/Fest.
