Super cool! We all know that legendary writer/director and longtime Pearl Jam pal Cameron Crowe is filming a documentary on our band in celebration of their 20th Anniversary. A couple of different localcentric Seattle news websites spottled Mr. Crowe out and about roaming the streets capturing footage for the upcoming doc.
The guy with the fancy looking camera seen in Madrona last Friday was none other than director Cameron Crowe, on hand to shoot a forthcoming documentary on Pearl Jam.
A local employee spotted the film crew and reported to us that Crowe confirmed he was there to shoot a film on the band.
Our tipster says that the band once had an office on 34th behind where June is located, roughly across the street from the Hi Spot.
The movie is due to come out in 2011, the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam’s founding, according to IMDB.com.
Our network partners over at Capitol Hill Seattle also saw the film crew on Saturday. From what we hear, it sounds like there might be more footage to be shot, so keep an eye out for Crowe and his camera.
Next, CapitolHillSeattle.com spotted Crowe at the Coryel Apartments, the complex of apartments featured in his film (own of our faves) “Singles”. Here’s the bit, and a picture!
