AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART: The Journey of Rick Springfield and his Devoted Fans is a new feature-length documentary about rock icon Rick Springfield and his ardently loyal fan base. Directed/produced by Emmy® winning filmmaker Sylvia Caminer and executive produced/marketed by Melanie Lentz-Janney, this documentary not only brings us face to face with Grammy® winning musician, songwriter, actor, and New York Times best-selling author, Rick Springfield, but also sheds light on his most fervent fans, casting a non-judgmental, unflinching eye on what makes his fans as passionate about him today as they were when Jessie’s Girl was #1 (circa 1981).

Everyone seems to grasp how celebrities like The Beatles and the Grateful Dead have a fan base of rabid supporters who travel the world as a homage to their idols … but Rick Springfield? Yes, it’s true … Rick Springfield fans are some of the most dedicated and fanatical people on the planet … often living out of a suitcase or taking a second job just to get their much needed “Rick Fix”.

Join us as we discover what it is about Rick and his music that drives his fans to such religious devotion; What meaning has he had in their lives; What kind of impact has he made over the years to his fans; and why do his fans travel across the country to see him time and time again? We also find out from Rick what he truly thinks about his fans and what it’s like to be the source of such timeless affection. In essence, what is this everlasting “affair of the heart” all about?

On the journey, we meet some of Rick’s most devoted fans and get a full picture of them as well as Rick’s career over the past four decades including highlights from his television roles/appearances, concerts, the annual Rick Springfield and Friends Cruise, his book release, press tour, and more. It’s a real glimpse into the life of Rick the “artist” and the “human being”.

However, this documentary is much more than an intense look at Rick Springfield. It’s a human-interest story about following dreams, connecting with like-minded people on our personal journeys, and the importance of taking a break from our busy, stressful lives for some good, clean fun reminiscent of our adolescence or simpler days.
