Q&A featuring Rupert Truman of Storm Studios.

Described by writer Douglas Adams as ‘the best album designer in the world’, Storm Thorgerson’s career spanned five decades as he and his studio Hipgnosis created some of the most iconic album covers ever made, including Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, and Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy. Gracing the covers of several albums by The Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney and Wings, Ian Dury, The Mars Volta, The Cranberries, The Cult..etc, Thorgerson’s designs became synonymous with rock music and pop culture. 

Featuring interviews with Robert Plant, David Gilmour, Peter Gabriel, Biffy Clyro, Cranberries, and many more, this fascinating documentary gives a glimpse into Thorgerson’s creative processes and career before his death in 2013.
