Mumford & Sons is my favorite band. They have an ongoing mini-documentary series called "Gentlemen of The Road." It's a great little piece of documentary filmmaking by Fred&Nick. It's greatness is compounded by how much I like the band. So when I saw a Facebook update from Pulse Films saying Fred&Nick were on the road with the boys as they started their summer tour in the U.S. I started blasting out emails.
I sent cold-contact emails to anyone who's address I could find online that may have some connection with either Pulse Films or Fred&Nick personally. I didn't know their full names though! You can't find them anywhere. It's always jut Fred&Nick.
Long story short, one of my emails finally landed in the inbox of the right person. They asked if I could make it to the Monterey show, when I said yes they sent me over the call sheet with instructions to pick up Fred&Nick at the San Francisco airport and yada yada yada.
I picked up the gear on my way to the airport... and the sum total value of the gear was worth more than the vehicle that carried it:
