Framing and adding sizzle to the exciting self-narrated story of Joan Collin’s life, composer Lindsay Wright taps into the jazzy 60s cocktail sounds to create an era defining soundtrack.
This is Joan Collins is directed by multi award winning director Clare Beavan (Simon Schama’s Power of Art, A History of Britain, The Prince, The Showgirl and Me, Imagine). Described by The Telegraph as “Deliciously un-apologetic”, The Times Culture as “sparkling” and BBC Radio 2 as “a fabulous watch”, This is Joan Collins is an immensely entertaining feature-length documentary on the life of one of the last surviving actresses from the golden age of Hollywood. The film is told from the ringside as Joan narrates her rollercoaster life story with her inimitable wit and verve. A worldwide television phenomenon with her decade-defining role in Dynasty, Collins shares her extraordinary archive and never before seen home movie footage. With this film she gives the public an intimate glimpse into her world and reveals her story as that of an extraordinary life, a life of a woman who has lived through the glitz, the glamour and the enduring moments of Hollywood history, and survived it all with panache, humour and resilience.
Lindsay Wright is an emerging British soundtrack composer known for HBO/BBC feature documentary The Mystery of D.B. Cooper, BBC documentary series Inside Monaco and the four-part BBC series 21 Again. She also scored the upcoming BFI-backed coming-of-age short drama Pop starring Stephen Graham; the acclaimed short documentaries Entitled and Dark Matter as part of Channel 4’s Random Acts; and BAFTA-winning director Caroline Bartleet’s short drama The Bind for BBC Films. Lindsay creates evocative and emotional scores across all genres of film, television and games. Lindsay’s work combines contemporary classical instrumentation and traditional practices with modern electronics and experimental techniques, culminating in an original and unique sound palette for every score.
