Overview

Springsteen & I is a 2013 documentary-biographical film directed by Baillie Walsh documenting the life and career of Bruce Springsteen through the eyes and insights of his fans throughout the world. An interactive poster for the film was released on June 7, 2013 featuring the images of over 350 fans.

In November 2012 Walsh, along with producer Ridley Scott through the production companies Ridley Scott Associates, Black Dog Films and Scott Free Productions announced their plans for the making of the documentary, which Walsh said inspired by the award-winning film Life in a Day. Walsh will use only fan submitted video and photographs where fans will provide their most personal insights, abstractions and reflections on how Bruce Springsteen and his music has affected their lives. Walsh stated, "We are searching for a wide variety of creative interpretations, captured in the most visually exciting way you can think of, whether you've been a hardcore Tramp since '73 or have heard one of his songs for the first time today! If you have a parent, a sibling, a neighbor or a colleague who has an interesting tale, we want to know about them. If you can't use a camera or are not sure how to capture your story then get in touch and we will link you up with someone who can!"

The production team edited the footage to feature length and are therefore requested that submissions be raw footage rather than edited material. As well as moving image accounts on camera, the filmmakers looked for fans to provide photographs, old footage or audio narration to help them build up a picture of what the acclaimed songwriter and musician means to them. Movie and image files became available quickly by uploading them through the film's website (springsteenandi.com), following simple online instructions. Ideally, the higher quality the footage the better, but the producers stress that any equipment, from smartphones to hi-def cameras are accepted – as long as they are all under 5 minutes in length. The documentary also features unseen live performances and some of Springsteen's most loved songs. Submissions for the film were accepted from November 15, 2012 through November 29, 2012. Walsh then edited the footage together for the film's 2013 release.

Walsh said of the film that he went through over 300 hours of footage, watching everything that was sent to him. "I felt very much a responsibility to do so. Enormous effort went into from thousands of people. I was worried that we were going to get 4,000 hours, that would have been a real problem. Three hundred hours was manageable. Every day we saw something new. Every day was exciting", Walsh said. Walsh spent six months editing the film and while there's certainly a lot of love for Bruce in the documentary, there were some things that he steered away from. "There were stories about how generous he is, stuff about 9/11, and he comes off a bit god-like, and I didn't feel comfortable with those stories. I think this film doesn't build Bruce to be a god. There's an undercurrent that he's a very decent man, and that does come across in the stories that are told. It's just very heartfelt stories of people talking about how Bruce and his music has affected their lives". One guy from Israel says, "Bruce taught me how to be a man — a decent man. That's who Bruce is. I really tried not to make it heavy-handed. I didn't come to the film as a Bruce Springsteen fan. I'm leaving it as a great admirer. I think his career is astonishing. I think the fact that he's still producing relevant music — the fact that Wrecking Ball at the age of 60, that's an amazing achievement". Walsh said that Springsteen saw the film and really enjoyed the humor in it. The people in the film were really eloquent. His management informed Walsh that Springsteen really enjoyed the film.
