All or Nothing
August Christopher shared the stage with the likes of Train, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Vince Neil, Skid Row, Nickelback, Loverboy, Twista, Tower of Power, Blue Oyster Cult, Afroman, Seven Mary Three, Rehab, and more, but you've probably never heard of them. August Christopher's live show was fearless. Drum set dives, on-stage fights, freestyle battling and climbing speakers were only some of the antics members would employ. The band was considered to be 'the next hottest thing in America' by industry execs, but they would all eventually lose interest when the drugs, alcohol, and constant fighting always seemed to take over. All or Nothing is not a movie about fame and fortune, about tenacity and determination paying off with that one, big break. Instead, this movie tells the real-life story of one of the hardest working groups you have never heard of, August Christopher. Edward Scott's debut film, with over 40 original songs and live performances, shows the band making a living with no management or booking agent - doing everything themselves, playing 250 shows per year, traveling in a beat-up van, and pursuing their dream to become rock stars. All or Nothing shows the breakdowns, breakups, tragedies and triumphs using footage spanning the band's very first show in 1999 to setting their van on fire in 2014, and even continuing into the present. After countless, costly efforts at fame (including a multi-media virtual concert, Guinness World Record, and breaking into venues to shoot music videos), members find happiness in the free things in life - relationship with their families, their fans, the music, and each other.
