Taken By Storm filmPink Floyd cover designer extraordinaire Storm Thorgerson is the subject of a new, in-depth documentary currently being worked on.

Taken by Storm: The Mind Movies of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis is a film about Thorgerson's life and work as told through his own reflection, his personal archive of never-before seen photographs and films, ex-partner of Hipgnosis Aubrey Powell, and through first hand narratives from some of the most important musicians of our time: David Gilmour and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Robert Plant, Peter Gabriel, and more recent collaborations with Scottish group Biffy Clyro, Rob Dickinson of Catherine Wheel, Dominic Howard of Muse, Cedric Bixler Zavala of The Mars Volta and many others as well as the numerous photographers, illustrators and assistants who have helped execute the work from the days of Hipgnosis to his new company StormStudios.

Roddy Bogawa, the man behind the film, tells us that Storm has granted total access to his archives, much of which is unseen, and with PF such a big part of his life, there's a lot on their relationship. He was particularly enthusiastic about his interviews with both Gilmour and Mason.
