Friday night, London's Barbican was the scene of the UK premiere of the finished version of director Roddy Bogawa's fascinating documentary, Taken By Storm.

The film is an absorbing and affectionate look at the incredible body of work created by Storm Thorgerson and his colleagues in Hipgnosis and StormStudios. Full of archive footage, along with more recent interview material - featuring the likes of David Gilmour, Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant and more - the 85 minute film is something that music fans of all persuasions will thoroughly enjoy. Storm's unique way of working comes across clearly, revealing the lengths he would go to, to realise his visions and ideas.

After the screening, conducted in front of a packed audience that included many notable figures from the world of music (and in particular, the Floyd world), there was an absorbing Q&A with Bogawa, along with Aubrey 'Po' Powell, Peter Curzon (StormStudios) and producer Orian Williams.

The film is shortly to be released on DVD and download. The DVD is housed in a digipak with some typically excellent design work by StormStudios, honouring their friend and colleague, and can now be preordered from If you are yet to see it, here's the trailer...
