A documentary wasin prep last year, filming took place at a few gigs. This could easily be part of it

A documentary?? 

A bonus feature on a full concert DVD?Huh 

Speaking of which, whatever happened to Mike’s documentary? Wasn’t it supposed to accompany his book?

I don't remember hearing about that.   I remember there was a trailer on The Beach Boys Facebook page a year or two ago that looked to be a documentary on the current touring band, but it turned out that it was fan made. 

So, maybe Mike's doc went the way of that phantom "History of The Beach Boys" doc that was teased back in the summer of 2012......or did that become the Doin It Again doc?

He's looking very well!!  He looked very tired during his last tour.  Maybe he needs to reduce the amount of shows he does?

Yeah, back in 2015 he had mentioned it in a couple interviews, here's one...

Quote
Interviewer: Do you plan on turning your new book into a film?

Mike: Well, I’m not doing it to make it into film. But being in India with Maharishi, meeting Marlon Brando, being friends with so many people in the music industry and some of the trials and tribulations, the ups and downs, it makes for quite a story. So I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it were to become a film. However, in the meantime I’m hoping to come up with a documentary that really shows my point of view. I think that that’s plenty to do in the next six months to a year.

But I also remember one where he was fairly certain about the documentary in terms of being a companion with his book.

Yeah, talk of documentaries from both camps makes me wish PBS did a 3 part/6 hour unbiased series on the entire band - from it's genesis to TWGMTR. There's plenty of footage, audio, pictures. It would be an amazing story from start to finish.

If Brian is currently filming a documentary I'm both excited and saddened - I'm excited for there to be a documentary, but I had hoped that in his current down time he'd be in the studio cutting rock-n-roll tracks. Maybe he's doing both though.

I'd love to see somebody from the outside take the reigns on a BB history doc.  Scorsese did a great doc on George Harrison a few years ago.   

I'm willing to wait on Brian's next album.  Artists around his age aren't exactly swift when it comes to releasing new material.   The guys from Pink Floyd are a great example.

@KDS, Scorsese also did a phenomenal doc on Bob Dylan many years ago. Would love to see a Beach Boys documentary in that style.

I never saw the Dylan one, although I'm not really a fan.   I loved his Harrison doc though.   

Maybe Zooey Daschanel can convince one of her director friends to put a documentary together.   (She's the first big time BB fan in Hollywood I could think of).

I'd wager a lot of people who weren't fans came away at least wanting to learn and hear more, if not getting a full conversion, after seeing that doc.

The Harrison doc was superb too, but for me maybe not as many revelations or "wow!" moments in terms of the history. But a definite must-see, and piggyback it with the Concert For George to hear his music presented in a totally new, respectful light.

I wish that too. I've always felt the Beach Boys deserved a documentary along the lines of the Beatles Anthology.  2012 would've been the perfect time. Another missed opportunity

I watched it when I first became a fan and man it opened a lot of doors to his music for me, I went out and got the Live At Newport dvd after that, bought/read his Chronicles book - which is incredible. That movie helped me really understand his early music more, and as someone who once hated his music, it was a necessary movie to watch.

It's impossible to say the Harrison doc is bad, that's for sure. It's a good film. But not great. I'd say if one watched it blindly, it would be hard to tell it's a *Scorsese* documentary. It smelled to me at the time like he kind of employed a team of researchers and interviews and whatnot to make most of the documentary. For such a long documentary, it got hung up on taking too much time to re-tell the Beatles story yet again. It glossed over a good amount of George's later career.

But for sheer access to footage and interview subjects, it still has some important stuff in it.

But even something like the Harrison doc, 3-4 hours long, would be great to have for the Beach Boys.
