In early 2016, Dan Elswick embarked to document BANE’s final US tour. Starting as a love letter to his favorite band, it turned into much more. Beginning at a time when hardcore music strayed from its punk roots, BANE musically and lyrically challenged people. Five individuals set a course to live and play music by their own rules. After two decades attracting fans with their honesty as people and musicians, the pressure of home life and self-doubt became unavoidable. BANE made an all-or-nothing decision to end the band with a final album and tour. Holding These Moments examines the challenges of living and creating art on your own terms. It explores the artist’s struggle: questioning relevance and living a life of meaning amidst one’s art. Through extensive band, fan, and friend interviews, we see firsthand the impact of people living less ordinarily.

About

In 2015, camera operator Dan Elswick had an idea to follow the band, Bane on their final US tour.   He asked editor, Ricardo Cozzolino if he would help cut his footage into a documentary.  In 2016, as post production began, Dan and Ricardo named their work collaboration, Queen City Pictures.  The name comes from a moniker of their home city, Denver, Queen City of the Plains.  The documentary Holding These Moments was only the first production of many productions.
