The Fearless Freaks: The Wondrously Improbable Story of The Flaming Lips DVD

If the Flaming Lips have had an accidental career, then this documentary is indeed an accident as well. Back in 1991, I was simply Wayne Coyne's art-school neighbor in Norman, OK, with a film camera and some tenacity. They were in need of a willing and somewhat competent cinematographer to shoot their music videos, and I was on a constant hunt for action-packed stories and oddball characters. And thus a relationship built of geographic convenience and a mutual desire to create ourselves was born...and now, fifteen years later, I have thankfully made my career working with the band. After combing through 400 hours of footage that includes a decade of home movies, personal interviews, live shows, music videos and the Lips' first full-length feature film (Christmas On Mars), The Fearless Freaks is at last fully realized. I am forever grateful to Wayne, Steven, and Michael for their patience and trust. Without the unbelievable access that the band gave me, this would be just another okay rockumentary. Instead, together we have created an insightful and personal piece of cinema. - Director Bradley Beesley
