Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie was a complete passion project from my end. The whole situation of me creating that film began almost by complete accident. The movie took 4 whole years to make, mainly due to the fact that I have had absolutely zero training in filmmaking whatsoever and learned how to make a movie by how NOT to make a movie.
Being a documentary lover, I mainly used my gut instincts for editing and content which would make up the film. I ended up with over 400 hours of footage to go through, it was an absolute overwhelming nightmare. Once the film was finished, I had realized that an official release was pretty much impossible. By that point I had been in touch with Universal Music in regards to the rights to use Bang Tango‘s music for the film. It was a 6 month email conversation that consisted of myself being bounced around from employee to employee and just being run around into one big endless circle. I then woke up one day and made the decision to release it on YouTube for free.
The response to the film was absolutely flattering and I am so proud of what I was able to do with this movie.
It has since become a cool little cult film and I am at absolute peace with the fact that it may never see an official release. In that regard, and in a true artsy way, the film mirrors the band perfectly in that both were never given a well deserved shot in the mainstream. Cheers to you for making it what it is today. Thank you.
