[edit] Information

For over forty years before his untimely death in 2013, Storm Thorgerson was a designer of record covers and director of music videos, films, and TV commercials. At the height of the 1960s in Swinging London, Storm Thorgerson graduated from the Royal College of Art and co-founded the design company Hypgnosis with Aubrey "Po" Powell. Thorgerson's friendship with Roger Waters, Syd Barrett and David Gilmour resulted to the first Hipgnosis album cover, for Pink Floyd's "A Saucerful of Secrets" in 1968. Hundreds of collaborations with musicians followed and Thorgerson and the company were pursued for their original graphics that introduced the music and ideas within the albums. For over forty years using 12"x12" album covers as his canvas, Storm Thorgerson produced some of the most visually arresting images in popular culture- Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon, Led Zeppelin's Houses Of The Holy– eschewing computer manipulation in favor of building massive sets and tableaus in his quest to "do it for real." Taken By Storm: The Art Of Storm Thorgerson And Hipgnosis features intimate interviews and footage of Thorgerson along with musicians he's worked with throughout his career including David Gilmour and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel, Graham Gouldman of 10cc, Alan Parsons and more recent collaborations with the groups Muse, Catherine Wheel, the Cranberries, Biffy Clyro and The Mars Volta. Other interviews include Aubrey Powell, partner in famed company Hipgnosis and Green Back Films, one of the first music video companies, along with Thorgerson's numerous photographers and collaborators as well as artists Sir Peter Blake and Damien Hirst. Taken By Storm: The Art Of Storm Thorgerson And Hipgnosis is a film about the man behind some of the most recognized album covers in rock and roll, his creative journey at the intersection of art, commerce, and technological change and the visual legacy of his art that resonates throughout contemporary culture. Directed by Roddy Bogawa ; A Piecemeal Films / Fallencinema Production in Association with Orian Films
