Adrian Maben; Directing Pink Floyd

The year was 1971 …

Up until that point, concert films were all done in the same fashion. Lot of cameras and as many shots as possible from every different angle imaginable.

mabenAdrian Maben came along and changed everything. Just like Pink Floyd did …

“Overhead the albatross hangs motionless up on the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves

In labyrinths of coral caves

The echo of a distant tide

Comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green and submarine”

*Please listen to Adrian’s take on things and a pleasant surprise he had when he re-visited Pompei to do his director’s cut in 2001.






* Please excuse the audio quality. The interview was recorded amid a backdrop of noise. I did the best I could do to bring the quality to the utmost.
