The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years is based on the first part of The Beatles' career (1962-1966) -- the period in which they toured and captured the world's acclaim. Ron Howard's film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, "The Beatles". It explores their inner workings - how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together - all the while, exploring The Beatles' extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities. The film will focus on the time period from the early Beatles' journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. We have submitted for this award because we feel that after years were spent tirelessly looking for never seen before footage of "Theatrical" and "Cinematic" quality from around the globe the director, producers & crew deserve it. Over the course of the production Apple Corps, Imagine Entertainment, White Horse Pictures and One Voice One World called out to fans who had attended The Beatles concerts in the 60's to send us never seen before footage and stills. This was a great success and adding these special contributors to the vendors we had over 150 licensors in total that contributed some fantastic footage comprising up to over 2000 clips. That footage was gloriously restored by some wonderful artists to get it to its best form to view. Again this Award is to everyone that gave their lives up to the movie to make it the best it could be.
