Reel To Real from Umphrey’s McGee on Vimeo.
The video description reads:
Reel to Real is an archival rock documentary about the innovative Umphrey’s McGee, diving deep into the early years by examining their inner workings through unreleased band shot camcorder footage. It reflects on UM’s days of suspended youth, racking up thousands of miles in a van and trailer without a worry in sight. But reality knocks as a founding member walks away mid tour, putting the entire venture in jeopardy. It’s a view behind the curtain, one designed not to paint a picture of what you think it’s like, but what it’s actually like to make the journey.
