Filmed over 3 years, ROCK N ROLL NERD is an intimate tale that charts Tim Minchin’s meteoric rise from obscurity to celebrity. Capturing every moment of Tim’s first frenzied break onto the comedy scene the documentary weaves never-before-seen performance footage, backstage antics, home footage and candid interviews into a funny and deeply personal story of love and ambition.
TIM MINCHIN says…
I think what makes this project so unique is that it is absolutely not a retrospective doco of an artist’s grand career, nor a rockumentary about a life of debauchery, nor a voyeuristic peek at the glamorous life of a pop celebrity. It is a story told from a unique perspective: an absolutely trusted insider looking through fond eyes at a normal couple going on a journey which is both somewhat extraordinary and kind of… well, super-ordinary.
