  • Stole the Show: Director's Cut

    Kygo

    Year: 2018

    Runtime: 51 min

    "Stole The Show drops us into the heart of the music streaming revolution.
    Our story follows the rise of Kygo, the first star born in this new streaming age. His success across streaming platforms, driven by his invention of the “tropical house” genre, changed the fundamental rules of how an artist succeeds.
    Stole The Show centers around Kygo's first arena show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, using it as a lens to examine not only Kygo's journey from his bedroom studio in Bergen, Norway, but also the revolutionary rise of streaming.
    Before Barclays, Kygo was in an oddly indefinable position. His success felt major, becoming the fastest artist in history to reach one billion streams. However, no one had been in this position before, so there were no common benchmarks to go by. He needed a test to gauge his standing outside of the digital world. Barclays Center was that test, and the sold-out results reflected a resounding success. Stole The Show, featuring Bono, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, and Shaggy, examines Kygo's ascent within this brave new world of streaming, following his career from before it could be called a career through the moment he officially broke through the ceiling in Brooklyn, and beyond."

  • Purple Reign

    Prince

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 45 min

    In recent times, music lovers have been confounded with the tragic and shocking news that some of their most beloved stars had passed away in controversial circumstances. The music world has again been stunned by the sudden and tragic news that Prince, the legendary musician, died at his home in Minneapolis at the age of just 57, and it was recently confirmed the singer died of an opioid overdose. He was one of the most naturally gifted artists of all time, and also one of the most mysterious. In the Eighties, at a time when other megastars such as Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, and Madonna, were delivering an album every three years or so, Prince remained prolific to an almost inhuman degree. A byproduct of his inexhaustible output was Prince's tendency toward wayward, self-indulgent career moves that sometimes alienated even his most ardent supporters. His influence is unparalleled, and his legacy will live on through his inspirational music. In this fascinating documentary, we take an in depth look into the life and times of one of music’s greatest performers…Prince.
