About the film:
With his Deconstructing the Beatles series, Scott Freiman combines his love of the band with his experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver unique educational lectures about their creative process. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions.
In Revolver (2017) he takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their seminal 1966 album, Revolver, rated the top album of all time in many music polls. The 1966 album launched a period of studio experimentation for The Beatles that coincided with their decision to stop performing live.
