All Things Must Pass
Established in 1960, Tower Records was once a global billion dollar record retailer with almost two hundred stores, in thirty countries, on five continents.

Now, much like the music industry as we once knew it, Tower Records is a relic. “All Things Must Pass,” is a feature documentary film examining the trajectory of this iconic company, it’s eccentric founder Russ Solomon and it’s place in forging and becoming music history.
All Things Must Pass - Official Trailer
In 1984, the San Francisco Giants finished dead last. But neither the players nor the fans had as nightmarish a season as the team's first mascot. Wayne Doba, a classically-trained actor, dancer and mime, found himself sweating inside a foam suit resembling a hamburger with claws. Instead of cheering for the home team, the "Crazy Crab" rooted against the crowd, taunting players and fans. It was a radical experiment intended to distract from the team's lackluster performance. But as the season went south, so did the gimmick. The crab quickly became a punching bag for fans who pelted the mascot with beer bottles and batteries. 30 years later, the "Anti-Mascot" uncovers the forgotten history of a brilliant marketing scheme that spun wildly out of control.

This film aims to celebrate Grace’s quirky brilliance, and shine a light on the underrepresented history of computer science.

Only months later, they ultimately they struck gold.
