The ones who make it through – a short film by Randy Frykas

Remember those cool Canadians called High Five Drive? We spent a week on the road with them last year and played the Groezrock festival, the UK, Naaldwijk, Belgium and France together. During that tour, their friend / film maker Randy Frykas shot a lot of video footage that was edited into this short film called ‘The ones who make it through’. After being broadcast on Winnipeg on Demand, the complete film is now available from Randy’s vimeo channel. In randy’s own words:

When it comes to bands on tour most people think huge buses, sold out arenas and partying but independent touring is a whole different world. Sleeping on floors, days without showering, broken down vans and sinking more and more in debt are common occurrences for this kind of touring.

To us, the story told in this film is very familiar, and if you’re in a band yourself you’ll probably recognize a lot of situations. If you’re not in a band yourself, this film is the ultimate way to see what it’s like to tour independently. Enjoy!
