The documentary film on the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp will receive a virtual cinema release on January 15th, 2021 on account of the pandemic - before being made available on demand on February 16th, 2021.
The film documents Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, the American camp that for more than two decades has given people (with a lot of disposable income...) the opportunity to learn from rock stars like Slash and Cooper - both of whom have acted as counsellors over the years.
Originated by producer David Fishof in 1996, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp involves the rockers teaching and inspiring campers over the course of four days, concluding with attendees and counsellors performing alongside one another in a major concert.
In the trailer for Rock Camp, Cooper describes the nature of the notable event, saying, “You would have a 15-year-old kid playing drums, and a dentist on guitar.
“If this band were a real band it would be the weirdest band ever, but cool!”
The film is directed and produced by Douglas Blush (Stardom, Twenty Feet) and focuses on the experiences of four campers as they learn to perform from some of rock’s most influential artists.
As well as Slash and Cooper, Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler, Dave Navarro, KISS' Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach, Heart’s Nancy Wilson, Jeff Beck and members of Judas Priest, can all be seen in the trailer, each having undertaken a role as a camp counsellor over the organisation’s 25-year history.
