From our good friends over at Zani:
ZANI Media are proud to present, in conjunction with Stuart Deabill and Ian “Snowy” Snowball – authors of Thick As Thieves Personal Situations With The Jam. (Published by Marshall Cavendish – Release Date 20th September 2012).
Thick As Thieves is a short and informative documentary on “The Best F****** Band in The World …THE JAM!”
Fans young and old, including the likes of renowned photographer Grant Fleming and Journalist and Author Garry Bushell, former band associates such as Dennis Munday (Polydor records), Bill Smith (Cover sleeve designer) and many more talk about their passion and experiences with the band, that still means so much to so many people, after their official split in December 1982.
The documentary is directed by Award Winning Film Maker Paolo Sedazzari of Brand New Films.
The idea to capture the essence of the forthcoming book (Thick As Thieves Personal Situations With The Jam) into a documentary came about from a brief telephone conversation between Stuart and ZANI’s editor Matteo Sedazzari.
Fuelled by the energy of The Jam and using Direction, Reaction and Creation as their template, ZANI Media, Stuart Deabill and Ian “Snowy” Snowball decided to use the services of Paolo Sedazzari , and film the people talking about Paul, Bruce and Rick.
In this 25 minute documentary you will see the pure emotion, pride and belief as everyone talks about The Jam. Please give the film a view which may inspire you, as the band has certainly inspired a generation and many more to come.
The conviction to make this documentary is proof that the unity amongst The Jam’s fans is as strong as it was back in the day. Paul Weller’s closing statement on The Jam, “Belief Is All”, best sums up the project.
