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 October 1965, The Beatles were faced with an impossible task — produce a new album of original music for a Christmas release. Within one month, The Beatles had emerged with what many consider to be one of their greatest albums — Rubber Soul. They even had time to create a double A-side single, “We Can Work It Out” backed by “Day Tripper.” Both sides of the single, as well as the album, hit number one on the charts.

In Rubber Soul (2017), composer/producer Scott Freiman walks Beatles fans young and old through the creation of Rubber Soul. Learn the stories behind the creation of “Norwegian Wood,” “In My Life,” “Nowhere Man,” and other classic Beatles songs. Mr. Freiman conducts an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions.

He is creator of Deconstructing the Beatles, a series of multimedia presentations about the composition and production techniques of the band. He has presented his lectures to sold-out audiences nationwide and has spoken about the Beatles at colleges, universities, and corporations, and contributed his insights into for the 2013 book All the Songs: The Story Behind Every Beatles Release. He also writes about music and “deconstructs” songs and bands for Culture Sonar and co-hosts the monthly Fab Four Master Class with fellow Beatleologist Kenneth Womack.
