- Adrenaline '71
- Adrenaline '70" made an impact!
Shortly after the release of the DVD "Praytome
Publishing" got numerous requests from
Elvis fans worldwide if there would be further
volumes of "Elvis - Adrenaline".
After there were several short excerpts of the
Las Vegas 1969 engagement in the documentary,
the fans didn't want anything more than the
release of the complete footage showing Elvis
during his sensational stage comeback.
The fans and the world press agreed in one point:
The documentary contained on the DVD was as
good that the only bad thing was the short running
time. But the producers didn't want to make
such an elaborate work like "Elvis:
Behind The Image Vol. 2".
"Elvis - Adrenaline" should only be
great entertainment linked with well-founded
background information to the shown 8mm footage.
Thereby the time frame in Elvis's career at
that point in time when these incomparable recordings
were made should be highlighted.
requirements weren't only fulfilled but the result
made the fans want MORE.We wanted to fulfill the wish
of the fans.
|It was aimed at
establishing a premium documentary, dealing with Elvis
in Las Vegas but focusing the year 1971.
1971 is like a black whole. It is really astonishing
how different the amount of material in the several
years is. From some years we have got a lot of material
and from others we have nearly nothing.
After detailed research the producers realized that
1971 was an extremely eventful and successful year.
But the copyright situation makes it hard to report
about the several events within a documentary. That's
a bad point of departure if you want to create an
exciting, informative movie with few material, and
which shall have a longer running time than its predecessor.
of all "Praytome Publishing" and the "Behind
The Image" team created a concept which should
use a little trick. It was planned to use a bigger
time frame within the documentary.
After a long developing process first excerpts of
the script by Gregor Retkowski and Nadine Schwenk
were sent to Bud Glass. Bud should take the part of
the narrator like in the first Volume
"Elvis - Adrenaline '70". Bud's answer
was "Hey do you want to remake "This Is
Elvis" ? Bud was thrilled by the script but wanted
to create a documentary which focused more on 1971
like the original concept.
Only one week later he sent a script which fulfilled
all criteria. However, it took a whole year until
the second part of the Las Vegas Anthology series
saw the light of the day, due to the high requirements
of the company had to be fulfilled. This - without
any doubt - was realized for everyone's contentement.
