Not getting much sleep is also a big part of it, but overall being a touring artists consists of mostly positive experiences; receiving incredible energy from fans, playing amazing shows & beautiful locations, building friendships with other artists and the hardworking people that make these events happen, the discovery of new cultures & food, and all the other fun and inspiring people you meet on the road.
COLYN: ‘‘I’m super proud of the results and the endless support I receive from my family, friends and team throughout this wonderful journey. I can’t wait to share UNFILTERED with you!’’
Videographer ARUN adds, “‘There are not many professions that would exceed the variety in documentation than the life of an international touring artist. Every day of every tour has a natural buildup, which all eventually comes together in a moment of pure joy during the show. As each episode takes place in a different corner of the world, it allows for many scenic and cinematic elements, amplified by the beauty of Colyn’s filmic music. Being on tour for months and spending so much time together developed into a special connection that also enabled me to create something real, human and funny. The idea was to make it feel like the viewer becomes part of the tour, which I tried to accomplish by shooting alone instead of having a full crew. I am beyond excited to show you the result.’’
This documentary series is set to offer a rare but vital look at the real life of a touring artist.
