The makers of an upcoming documentary on our second home, The Gorge Amphitheatre, have released the official teaser trailer for the film, which is due out in 2015. Produced by Tim Williams, directed by Nic Davis, and backed by William’s agency Jack Reynolds, Enormous: The Gorge Story is attempting to tell the never-before-told story of the Northwest’s premier venue, and if the trailer is any indicator, they’re well on their way.
Drawing from the rich history that penetrates the soil nearly as deep as the flowing waters that eventually formed The Gorge, Williams & Davis are creating a work of art that really should be a thing already. The list of artists who have performed at The Gorge over the decades is as impressive as it is long, and the list is only growing and becoming more diverse. With perspective, both historically and visually, their goal, Williams & Davis are digging deep and leaving no potential stone unturned. Unearthing videos, ticket-stubs, pictures, stories, and featuring interviews with some of music’s highest regarded artists, Enormous: The Gorge Story is shaping up to be, well, enormous.
Originally inspired by the Dave Matthews Band, and their annual stops at The Gorge each summer, the guys behind Enormous: The Gorge Story quickly expanded their coverage and interest in the venue beyond the legendary band. With events like SASQUATCH!, Paradiso, Watershed, and more, there’s plenty for the Williams & Davis to dissect in regards to The Gorge’s growth and evolution into what its become today.
With The Gorge’s history, and its evolution into the supreme scenic venue in all of North America (you heard me, Red Rocks), Enormous: The Gorge Story is telling a story that many want to hear, and many more need to hear. Check out the trailer below, and ride out those goosebumps of excitement as we edge closer and closer to Paradiso 2015.
