social | @edgarwright London / L.A. / Park City. It was such a rush to finally screen our three years in the making documentary #TheSparksBrothers. Here’s the post screening Q&A with @sparks_official. It was 2am for me when we wrapped up. Wish we could have all been in the same room, but honestly I am just happy to finally share this with the world. Thanks for all of you who left lovely responses. I hope I created a lot more Sparks fans.
social | @edgarwright A week after the @sundanceorg premiere of #TheSparksBrothers, I want to give a shout-out to my amazing hard working crew who made it happen, seen here having a pre screening champers. Can’t wait until we can all be in the same room. Love you @henckenstein, @leojt, @laasvegas, @ptre, @ladylshape, @npark1906, @jakepolonsky, @richiestarzec, @kateg6691, Gary Welch and @serenavkennedy. Also @tessnomorenoless, @misscouscous and many many more. Can’t wait for you to see it soon!
social | @edgarwright It was a very special Sundance this year, but that didn’t stop some very enjoyable panels, like this one with me, my amazing producer @henckenstein and incredible editor @ptre from Team Sparks Brothers, the producers and editor of the transcendent Summer Of Soul and our host, documentary wizard Morgan Neville. My second time at the festival, my first with a movie showing in the programme and the first I could do from my living room. Hope to be back in actual Park City, another time though.
social | @edgarwright The 2nd screening of #TheSparksBrothers is happening today at @sundanceorg. I hope those of you watching enjoy it as much as we did making this for the last three years. Here is a photo of the first time I ever met Ron & Russell of @sparks_official in 2015, I’m so proud to have brought their legendary adventures in music to the screen.
