We don't know how to feel about this.
On one hand, we think it's a pretty cool project. But on the other, it's kind of lame that it's a movie about sneaking into concerts, especially since we'd probably have to pay to see the movie!
The trailer is basically about a real-life, aspiring music journalist who makes fake press credentials to get into music festivals, and then records his experience once there.
So… basically it's a documentary copying Almost Famous.
The only problem is that he wouldn't have been able to film to the extent he did unless he was press, hence the title, No Cameras Allowed.
With music and performances by artists like Jay Z, Coldplay, and Tegan & Sara, as well as many others, we're not so sure that the movie is going to get past the trailer stage, seeing as there will probably be some lawsuits.
Unless of course this is all just one giant viral marketing stunt by the hands of some music execs. In which case, nicely done, cause it looks pretty real.
Regardless of your stance on the morality of the movie, the trailer does look pretty fun! Just disregard the fact that his shots look nothing like what the handheld 8mm he's using could produce.
Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
