Promo trailer for the documentary Taken by Storm: The Art of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis.

For over forty years, Storm Thorgerson has been designing record covers eschewing computer manipulation in favor of building massive sets and tableaus and ‘doing it for real’ deliriously and relentlessly confounded expectations of the relation of images and music. With intimate interviews and footage of Thorgerson reflecting on his inspiration and idiosyncratic creative process, Taken by Storm explores technology and culture, hyperrealism and the everyday and the role of the record sleeve at the intersection of art and commerce.
