The French premium pay channel Canal+ has commissioned BBC Worldwide Production France to create a 60-minute Daft Punk documentary. The documentary will be released in 2015.
According to BBC, viewers will get an insight into the creative world of Daft Punk. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the two members of Daft Punk, created an innovative French Touch sound that changed the musical landscape forever. This documentary should serve as a great way for EDM newcomers to learn the importance of Daft Punk.
The documentary will be written and directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre and co-written by Marina Rozenman. The co-producers will be Jean-Louis Blot, Head of BBC Worldwide Productions France, and Patrice Gellé, Executive Producer Documentaries.
Blot says, "We are proud to announce our first commission with Canal+ Group on such an original and creative film. BBC Worldwide France stands as a major French producer of documentaries with stunning production values and universal appeal.”
Gellé adds, "We are happy to produce the first independent movie on the iconic group Daft Punk driven by the creative ambition of BBC Worldwide's artistic team and the funds of significant international partners."
We're interested to see how BBC Worldwide is able to whittle Daft Punk's legendary career down to just 60 minutes. The French duo have a laundry list full of accomplishments, and it'll be difficult to condense their 20-year career into just one hour of television programming.
