The tagline for rockumentary Meal Tickets is A Band of Bestfriends; A Roadie That Wanted Rockstardom; A Documentary Ten Years in the Making. In this interview, director Mat de Koning, reveals what it took to edit mountains of footage into this tight story of aspirations, comprimises, and the sweet syphony of life.
