The career of one of the most successful musicians of all-time is being compiled by filmmaker Charlie Lightening.
Paul McCartney, the 77-year-old songwriting legend whose catalog includes some of the most beloved music of all-time, is still actively touring, and footage from that tour will be incorporated into the film.
“I’ve worked with Paul McCartney for 12 years and I followed him,” said Lightening. “I am still working with him. It’s not finished. I’ll be with him at Glastonbury,” said Lightening, speaking at the NMEs.
“He’s helped me with what I do and I adore him,” Lightening added “He’s trusted me and to have someone like that to see up close and work with – that’s inspiring, it makes you better at what you are, it makes you want to be better.’
Lightening previously created a documentary on musician Liam Gallagher’s comeback, As It Was. That film won the award for Best Music Film at the NME Awards.
