‘Bleeding Audio’ Director Chelsea Christer on the Rise and Fall of The Matches


Who are The Matches and why were they never as big as they could have been? We find answers to these questions throughout the Bleeding Audio documentary. Director Chelsea Christer (a lifelong fan of the band) approached The Matches several years ago about documenting their journey.

The documentary focuses on the band but the way director Chelsea Christer tackled their story made it relatable in a more significant way. While we see the rise, fall and rise of the band, we see that this journey on becoming something in life isn’t always achieved on the first try.

Watch Christer, the band members and I discuss what it was like watching this journey back and how it was like filming it above.
