SINGLE VIDEO THEORY
Single Video Theory is a music documentary directed by Mark Pellington that follows the making of Yield, the fifth album by the American alternative rock band Pearl Jam. It was released first on VHS on August 4, 1998, and then on DVD on November 24, 1998.
The film was shot in 16mm film over three days in November 1997 in downtown Seattle. It features interviews with the band members and behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s rehearsal sessions for its shows opening for The Rolling Stones. The term single video theory is a play on the single-bullet theory, involving the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
The documentary illustrates how the band began to widen the songwriting responsibilities of its members, with bassist Jeff Ament credited with writing Pilate and Low Light, and guitarist Mike McCready taking part in writing Given to Fly with vocalist Eddie Vedder. It was the first insight into the band’s inner workings of its recording sessions, which had previously been shielded from the public.
