LOCAL>> Mill Valley Film Festival: Never Too Late: The Doc Severinsen Story
Documenting the fascinating life of this internationally famous (and enigmatic) figure
Who is Doc Severinsen? The colorfully dressed bandleader from The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson? A spectacular, underrated trumpet player? A complex man who prioritizes music over all else?
According to this revealing documentary, it’s all of the above.
An internationally famous (and enigmatic) figure, Severinsen makes for a fascinating subject in this intimate, surprising film. Veteran television director and producer Kevin Bright (Friends) joined forces with award-winning editor Jeff Consiglio (Twinsters) to capture the 92-year-old workaholic Severinsen in his element—performing, teaching music, working out, and making the occasional protein shake.
Their cameras reveal a man always in motion, forever striving to hit that impossible high note and never sitting still. Never Too Late: The Doc Severinsen Story combines interviews with Doc’s inner circle, terrific music and elated trumpet playing, and hilarious, iconic Tonight Show moments for an inspirational, honest, and illuminating portrait.
