Eager to find out more on this soon-to-be feature length, we caught up with Schmidt on camera (and hours before his Heffron Drive set in NYC) to discuss why he’s decided to document this crazy time of his life on film, which will be produced by Garrent Grant.
“I think there’s something really interesting about the transition between, and also being part of, two bands,” he explained. “I think it’s an interesting phase in somebody’s life, and if people want to watch it, then that’s cool.”
Even though he’ll be followed around for the month of December touring as Heffron Drive, he’s still committed to Big Time Rush in the beginning of next year. He also stressed that the filming is a bit tricky because he wants to make sure that his fans are happy with this new transition, as well as his label. “It’s hard to manage [both Heffron Drive and Big Time Rush], and I think this whole documentary is about many the ups, and of course the obvious downs that come along with transitioning between a really huge band and into something that’s your pet project.” He added: “To a fault, I’m extremely stubborn but also really concerned with people’s feelings, and I wouldn’t want to cause pain to somebody else in general, of any sort.” See? He may be strong-willed, but at the end of the day, he wants to make everyone happy!
And for those of you concerned that he will give up Big Time Rush — don’t be. “I’ve made it very clear that I really love both bands, and I’m happy to do both,” he stated. “Fortunately with music, you can do both, and I’m just trying to make it happen the best way possible.”
