Storm Thorgerson during filming of Syd Barrett documentaryThe good people of StormStudios have just sent their latest email newsletter, and since Storm Thorgerson's very sad passing in April, have clearly been keeping themselves extremely busy - exactly, as they point out, as Storm would have wanted!

One item in the newsletter refers to the documentary that Storm had been working on more recently (which I had the pleasure to be included as one of Storm's interviewees last year). They note that: "Since the end of 2011 Storm had been very busy filming a documentary with Rupert about Pink Floyd's founder member, Syd Barrett. They filmed many interviews including old school friends, flat mates, girlfriends, fellow musicians and all the surviving members of Pink Floyd. So far it's proved a very enlightening experience. The film itself is at the editing stage right now and it's a thrill to see it all coming together. Watch this space, as they say, for more news coming soon."

Finally, as a reminder for those in, or close to, the south of England, it's the final week of their current exhibition at The Guildhall, Portsmouth. If you haven't been already, and are able to, make sure you get down there soon as the final day is Sunday (June 23rd).
