Last Friday I had the privilege of attending a film release of “Pioneers” by Rebecca Friedlander. For the past several months, Rebecca has been traveling the United States, interviewing some of the pioneers of the Christian music industry including well known artists such as Annie Herring, Randy Stonehill, Phil Keaggy, and plenty more. She posed questions as asked by undiscovered Christian artists to these veterans and captured their wisdom for the next generation. In a very personable fashion, the film segues between the young artists asking questions and the responses from the seasoned vets. Snippets of some of the questions and responses were shown at the release, all of which were insightful, witty, and often times outright hilarious. As ridiculous as it may sound, I walked away from the preview feeling a near personal connection with some of these trail blazers. They shared stories and experiences that I’m certain all artists can relate with and will find instructive, encouraging, and let’s not forget humorous and entertaining.
The film comes in two editions, the bread and butter documentary and then a dual-DVD mentoring edition with plenty of extras. You can find out more about the film, see the trailer, and purchase it at the “Pioneers” page on Rebecca’s Website.
