Directed by Danny Clinch, Colleen Hennessy, and the late Shannon Hoon.
Shannon Hoon left behind over 200 hours of personal footage from his own camera; an impressive body of work that rivals his output as a musician. He began filming before Blind Melon met, and through this film, we experience the entire journey of the band from being anonymous L.A. transplants to 90's rock icons. This film documents the band's rise to fame, Hoon's family life, his creative process, his tumultuous struggle with addiction, and his hope for the future in a way that honors the footage he shot while maintaining a genuine and authentic story.
Hoon's private footage is being made into a feature length documentary that is truly unique. The film Hoon made - the film that we get to complete with him - is incredibly powerful, creative and artistic, and we're intent on honoring the vision he had for what he was making through this collaboration.
This film will be primarily through Hoon’s eyes until his death, after which we see the impact of his life, his lyrics, and his music on the world. This portion of the film will include a look into the annual Shannon Hoon Vigil in Dayton Indiana, where fans from all over the world gather every year with Hoon’s mother around his grave for a two-day celebration of his life.
