The Prodigy have announced plans for a documentary film made in collaboration with Paul Dugdale who is the visual producer behind their live concert movie Prodigy: World’s On Fire.
Paul Dugdale has an impressive portfolio having also worked with the likes of the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney. In regards to the Prodigy’s documentary Paul stated that “the film will be as wild as the band. Dark at times, strong changes of pace, it will be a visual assault too, stylistically striking, contemporary, and challenging. We want the viewers to leave the cinema like they’ve just stepped off a roller-coaster.”
Band members Liam Howlett and Maxim have given a statement to Billboard that announced the documentary, and they dedicated the film to deceased front man Keith Flint who tragically passed away in 2019
Liam Howlett and Maxim stated that “After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band, all of it, the whole 9 … It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the peoples band — The Prodigy. Or simply — a story of brothers on a mission to make noise…to ignite the peoples souls and blow-up sound systems worldwide…that’s fukin what! This film will be made with the same integrity that our music is — uncompromising, raw and honest…This one’s for Keef!”
The documentary is being made in partnership with Pulse Films, which has also been responsible for other video releases including Beyoncé’s Lemonade and LCD Soundsystem’s visual album Shut Up And Play The Hits.
So far there has been no information on a title or release date, but with hype already building The Prodigy’s documentary is anticipated to be a captivating watch.
