Hype! film screening with director Doug Pray
Hype! (1996) examines the Seattle scene as it became the focus of a merging of punk rock, heavy metal, and innovation. Building from the grass roots, self-promoted and self-recorded until break-out success of bands like Nirvana brought the record industry to the Pacific Northwest, a phenomenon was born. More than just an examination of the music, the film is a look at how this artistic movement became a societal and fashion trend with a major effect on American culture.

The film features interviews and performances from dozens of bands that made the era legendary: Nirvana, The Gits, Pearl Jam, Wipers, Hammerbox, Soundgarden, U-Men, Tad, Fastbacks and many more.

Director Doug Pray's movies about subcultures and maverick individuals have led him to three Sundance premieres, critical raves, numerous awards, and worldwide distribution. His feature documentaries include: "Art & Copy," "Surfwise," "Big Rig," "Infamy," "Scratch," and his debut film, "Hype!" about the birth and explosion of the Seattle music scene.  Doug was born in Denver, Colorado, grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, has a BA in sociology from Colorado College, and an MFA from the UCLA School of Film and Television. He lives in Los Angeles where he is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and The Directors Guild of America.
