Finally making public the documentary I shot & directed with Róisín Murphy. We spent time with some of the biggest The Darkness fans to find out about their relationship with the band.

We also spoke with frontman Justin Hawkins about how he feels about the relationship that develops between a band and his fans and he affects him and his work…

Apart from my video and film work I am a researcher of fandom and celebrity. After completing this documentary I went on to do a Masters and specialised in the relationship between fans & celerbrities. I learnt a lot doing this documentary, despite its imperfections, I’m proud of this piece of work. Even if one person gets something out of watching it, that’ll make me smile. 

Justin Hawkins from The Darkness…lifting the heavy thing.

I can always count on getting a gem shot of Frankie Poullain from The Darkness. What a pro.
