David Hockney: What makes and artist? | RCA
Drop everything - we're off to see Hockney!
We got a call on a Thursday to say there might be an opportunity to film David Hockney at his home in LA. The following day, it was confirmed that the shoot would happen on Monday. We got three people out to LA – director, camera operator and sound – plus arranged visas, hotels and hiring kit. Oh, and it was Thanksgiving weekend in America when (almost) everything shuts down.
Filmed at the artist's home
The film is aimed at inspiring the next generation of artists. Hockney tells about his time at the Royal College of Art and the role it played in his career. The crew flew out with a representative from the RCA who organised the questions. Together they had an amazing day at Hockney‘s house, including lunch. The film has had 250,000 views on Youtube and we continue to work with the client.
