David Hockney: A Bigger Story

David Hockney: A Bigger Story

By Uncategorised

The DCF team had the privilege of celebrating the South Bank Show, Melvyn Bragg and David Hockney last night, at an exclusive Sky Arts event at The Lightbox in Kings Cross. The lead film of the Directors Cut Productions swansong SBS series on art world legend Hockney was projected on to their giant wall whilst surrounded by projections of David’s art.

Directors Cut Films are incredibly proud to have completed full post production not only on this glorious 4 part series on Hockney, but on the legendary South Bank Show for the past 17 years. The inimitable Melvyn Bragg and their inspiring arts programmes will be missed by all.
