Sadie Frost’s documentary feature Twiggy is wrapping production in Cannes.
The UK model is making her debut visit to the festival to film the final scene at Film Soho’s virtual production stage on Wednesday (May 17), which will double up as London’s Carnaby Street in the 1960s.
Twiggy is being produced by UK studio Film Soho, who is teaming up with virtual production specialist Disguise and metaverse company Hadean for the end of shoot.
Twiggy is UK filmmaker Frost’s second documentary as director, following Quant. The film looks at Twiggy’s life and career, which began in the 1960s. It features interviews with Twiggy and her husband Leigh Lawson as well as commentary from Erin O’Connor, Paul McCartney, Lulu, Poppy Delavigne, Brooke Shields, Pattie Boyd, Zandra Rhodes, and others. The film features interviews with Twiggy, her husband Leigh Lawson and other celebrities such as Erin O’Connor and Paul McCartney. Other commentators include Brooke Shields and Pattie Boyd. “Virtual production is the future of filmmaking, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this new way of enabling audience participation in a traditionally one-way industry.”
Director Frost said “As a filmmaker I feel honoured to be able to use this ground breaking technology to transport Twiggy back to 1968! We announced the documentary here in Cannes exactly one year ago – what a way to celebrate the end of production through this seminal event.”
Film Soho co-founder and director Nick Hamson added: “With our newly installed V-Studios stage it seemed only fitting to introduce this technology into the Twiggy production; teaming with Hadean to create this incredible immersive experience is next the level of film making which we are delighted to embrace.”
