On April 4, 2008, an Academy Award(R)-winning
filmmaker and the world's greatest rock n' roll band will
unite to bring audiences the year's most extraordinary
musical film event, "Shine a Light," to theaters everywhere.
Martin Scorsese's concert documentary "Shine a Light" will
show the world the Rolling Stones as they've never been seen
before. Filming at the famed Beacon Theatre in New York City
in fall 2006, Scorsese assembled a legendary team of
cinematographers to capture the raw energy of the legendary
Oscar(R)-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson ("The
Aviator," "JFK") supervised the camera team comprised of
several highly acclaimed directors of photography, including
Oscar(R) winner John Toll ("The Last Samurai," "Braveheart"),
Oscar(R) winner Andrew Lesnie ("The Lord of the Rings"
trilogy, "King Kong"), Oscar(R) nominee Stuart Dryburgh
("The Piano," "The Painted Veil"), Oscar(R) nominee Robert
Elswit ("Magnolia," "Good Night and Good Luck"), Oscar(R)
nominee Emmanuel Lubezki ("Lemony Snicket's A Series of
Unfortunate Events," "Sleepy Hollow") and Ellen Kuras
("Summer of Sam," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind").
The film was edited by David Tedeschi, who most recently
worked with Scorsese on the acclaimed Bob Dylan documentary
"No Direction Home: Bob Dylan."
Financed by Steve Bing's Shangri-La Entertainment and
longtime Rolling Stones tour promoter Michael Cohl's Concert
Promotions International, the film was produced by Victoria
Pearman, Michael Cohl, Zane Weiner and Steve Bing. The
executive producers are Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith
Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, with Jane Rose
serving as co-executive producer.
