"DESTINY RULES documents the making of the album in fly-on-the-wall style..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Starting in the fall of 2001, filmmakers Baumann and Einhorn follow Fleetwood Mac's every move as they reunite to record their first studio album in 15 years. Cameras, including a few hidden ones, rolled almost non-stop for a year and a half. Culled from over 500 hours of footage, this documentary follows the band members as they record Say You Will and prepare for a world tour. From Stevie Nicks first day in the studio until the band walks onstage, you are a fly-on-the-wall to the 30 year saga that is Fleetwood Mac.
The amazing career of Fleetwood Mac has seen them overcome overwhelming personal turmoil, and seemingly tumultuous line-up changes. Hugely ambitious, the band are not afraid to undertake sizeable projects as they straddle the globe on a constant quest to bring their music to an ever-burgeoning fanbase. The DESTINY RULES project began in 2001, and was designed to capture the band as they recorded and toured their first album in 5 years. Filmmakers Matt Baumann and Hyle Einhorn were placed in charge of the task, and the results have been whittled down from over 500 hours of footage to produce this incredible release. Drawing on all their experience, Baumann and Einhorn pull off some neat tricks (including hidden cameras) to capture the most candid footage possible. For fans of the legendary band, this is an awesome way to experience the creative process as it unfolds in front of their eyes.
