Johnny Marr collaborated with filmmaker Fiona Skinner on her 30-second film celebrating the exhibition Ed Ruscha: Fifty Years Of Painting at the Hayward Gallery in December 2009. The film is by Fiona Skinner, and the words and music are by Johnny Marr.
I made this film for and won the Hayward Gallery’s Ed Ruscha Film Challenge. The brief was to make a 30 second film, expressing Ed Ruscha and his work. I chose the painting ‘NOISE’ and as I knew that Johnny Marr was a fan of Ruscha (and known for making noise too), I asked him to talk about the subject. I edited his words down to the 30 seconds and added my pictures.”
