Timoner Suffered Surprise Attack During Filming

US film-maker ONDI TIMONER had a terrifying experience while filming DIG! when she was viciously attacked by music fans.

Timoner's movie, which is released in July (05), follows the career of wild rock band the BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE.

But filming took a horrifying turn at the band's Detroit show when drug-addled members of their audience suddenly descended on her, transforming her shots of an unexceptional gig into an compelling piece of cinema.

She says, "I would say that was the scariest moment in the making of the film.

"There wasn't anything or anybody around that was going to stop it."
