Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
This week Pip is joined by director and screenwriter EDGAR WRIGHT!
For sure one of the more long awaited ones right here, as Pip finally checks in with Edgar in person. Edgar’s on top form as he goes into depth on his latest movie, and depth that will please all film enthusiasts at that. No spoilers given so don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, but it all sounds incredible. You’ll hear about production being shut down on arrival of the pandemic, the distopian Soho landscape which played into his film set in Soho (which boasts on location filming other than the parts referenced by Edgar here), authenticity, on camera effects and capturing magic, dealing with the present as well as going back in time, danger of romanticising the past, not turning his back on the UK, the cast and of course the Sparks documentary which is introducing and re-introducing a whole new and existing audience to the band. Excellent stuff, get involved!
