Crackerfarm, real name Mike Beyer, is the official videographer, photographer, and documentarian of The Avett Brothers. He began following the band around 2004 with partner Lindsey Rome with the original plan to create an electronic press kit, which later turned into a plan to release a documentary about the band. Lindsey departed in 2009 but Mike continues to follow the band as they record and tour.
The band and Crackerfarm frequently discuss putting out his content in a documentary, possibly funded by Kickstarter. In the meanwhile, Crackerfarm is known for his exclusive videos of the band and his behind-the-scenes snapshots of them at work in the studio and on the road, which he shares on YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram.
