Lucien Freud: A Painted Life

This BAFTA nominated (Spring 2013) from Blakeway Productions for BBC is both a definitive biography and a revelatory exploration of the creative process.  Lucien Freud: Painted Life includes frank testimony from those who knew and loved this extraordinary personality.  Freud’s many, and varied acquaintances recall for the first time a complex man who dedicated his life to his art and who always sought to transmute paint into a vibrant living representation of humanity.  Showing how Freud never swam with the flow and only achieved celebrity in older age. How he rejected the artistic fashions of his time, sticking to figurative art and exploring portraiture, especially with regards to nude portraiture, which he explored with a depth of scrutiny that produced some of the greatest works of our time.

Storm provided full post production for the series, from offline right through to delivery.
