No Credentials - The Intersection of Photography and EDM

Have you ever wondered how difficult it would be to forge a photography or production pass and sneak into a massive EDM event? Well, Cruz & Jacob did too, and it turns out it's pretty difficult, but not at all impossible. Ultra Music Festival is one of the bigger massives, and as a result the security is tight, and the rules are very strict for press passes. Thousands of photographers try to obtain these press passes every year, only to be turned down because they aren't the caliber of Rukes and other professional DJ photography bigwigs. This mini-documentary also brings up the point that so many of these people only want the press pass so they can be up on stage with the DJ. What do you you, our readers, think? Is this becoming a problem?
