These 17 posts are from Jon Bon Jovi's interview, its about their documentary movie. #BonJovi1 : The documentary When We Were Beautiful: We made a movie, and the idea was that caputure the band in that moment in time.2 : We didn't want it to be retrospective, we didn't want it to be a concert movie. So it was very specific what we're looking for,3 : which is the caputure what it's like the inside the circle (the band), what it's like when the door is closed.4 : So even the parts aren't pretty, I left in there on purpose. So you could get more of the sense what it's like.5 : If you are a REAL fan, you watch something like this and I think you appreciate it more.6 : Because you've already seen the shows, you've already watched the old 20 some year old televisions, videos and stuff.7 : You wanna know what the guy is all about, and I think this helps to tell that story.8 : So first we thought we could tell the story with the book, and began writing the memoirs.9 : And we didn't like it. We gave the company their money back.10 : We hired the 1st director who is an Academy Award director and she didn't get it. It was obvious after a couple of weeks we did it.11 : We started to destroy it. And we met a guy Phil Griffin the director, he shot a video for Whole Lot of Leavin'12 : and he caputured it, took some great photographs and having a conversation with him.13 : You realise it was a great conversation, and he could be rather inquisitive and sensed great interview.14: So we thought "Let's take a chance" and hired him to direct and give him access and trust him.15 : So we paid for it and we sold it off. It all worked for the best cause when you paid for it you have total control.16 : and even the people who bought it, it's company called Showtime here in America, they gave us total artistic freedom.17 : They didn't come in, they didn't change it, they kept their words on it. So I'm pleased with the outcome.
