Watch ILLENIUM Bid Farewell to a Career Chapter in New Concert Documentary
"It's definitely been a fucking journey," said ILLENIUM just before stepping on stage for his momentous "Trilogy" show last month.
After three album installments and five years of a distinct creative vision, the world-class electronic artist was preparing to move on. But first, he decided to plan a party—and a big one at that—touching down in Sin City for a massive concert at Allegiant Stadium.
Documenting the journey from ILLENIUM's Colorado studio to the stadium stage is a new short film by longtime members of the producer's photography and videography team. Directed, shot and edited by Nainoa Langer, with additional footage by David Nguyen, the documentary blends bittersweet nostalgia with overwhelming euphoria in engaging cinema verité.
The project is still your typical concert documentary, with footage of the "Triolgy" show making up five of its 13 minutes. In this case, though, the format is a virtue. It truly captures the unique community ILLENIUM's music has fostered over the years.
