Journey Did Not Pay For Their New Documentary

(Classic Rock) The filmmaker behind Journey's documentary movie says that when she started work she was hoping the band would offer to pay for production.

When they didn't, she found other ways to fund the work and by the time they did want to contribute cash, she didn't want to take it.

Keep On Believin': Everyman's Journey follows the rise of previously-unknown vocalist Arnel Pineda from his hiring in 2008 to the 2010 Eclipse album recording sessions, and his return home to the poverty-stricken Filipino city of Manila.

Director Ramona Diaz tells Ultimate Classic Rock that the financial aspect "never came together" during production. She explains: "It would have been different if the band came to us and said, 'Hey, make this film.' We were sort of going after that; when they finally said yes we couldn't say, 'Oh, yeah, can you pay for it?'

"My producer put it on her credit cards, and when she ran out of that I borrowed money from my family. Then we got some investors from friends and family small, small amounts of money." more on this story
