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.

The Darklings Documentary - Promo Video
So, this the video we had to present during our final year thesis presentations, to show our progress during the documentary making.
It’s kind of a little promo video, but just shows some clips of us meeting different Darklings [The Darkness fans], Justin Hawkins the frontman of the band, myself and Róisín my documentary partner in crime roaming around the UK.
Róisín put it together back in March to give a taste of what we were upto.
Feel free to share it. I’m going to see whether we will enter the documentary into a festival or share it online to the public. I’ll keep you posted!
