Description by OLDIES.com:
"In 1978, when I was a member of a struggling rock band called The Police, I scraped together enough money to buy a super 8 movie camera. As soon as I raised it to my eye and started filming, amazing things began to happen. It was like watching a movie unfold as the band sparked a fire that lit up the world for us. Everyone Stares
is that movie." -Stewart Copeland
Everyone Stares is a first-person account from Stewart Copeland's eyes of The Police's ascent from obscurity to worldwide fame. Culled from over 50 hours of super 8 movies he shot during the acclaimed trio's heyday, the film offers an insider's view on touring with fellow band members Sting & Andy Summers and the reaction of adoring fans worldwide, all of which, gives the audience a unique perspective from the drummer's seat. Copeland scores this remarkable movie using more than sixty music cues taken from original studio versions, rare live performances and seven previously unreleased 'derangements' of classic Police studio & live tracks created solely for this film. This DVD also includes over 20 minutes of bonus footage not seen in other versions of the film and bonus commentary by Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.
Throughout their career, Police drummer Stewart Copeland documented the band on a Super-8 camera. The footage lay dormant for some time as Copeland struggled to piece the film into a cohesive whole, but thanks to advances in technology, he has managed to construct EVERYONE STARES: THE POLICE INSIDE OUT. The footage offers a glimpse at life on the road with the band, along with studio sessions, huge concert performances, and subtle hints as to why the group broke up. For a fan of the Police, this is essential viewing; for anyone else, it's a fascinating up-close portrait of a band's rise to fame.
