New Syd Barrett documentary - Have you got it yet

Post by crofloyd » Fri Jun 26, 2015 12:53 pm

Apparently, a new documentary film about Syd is set to be released later in 2015

It is said that it features interviews with all the surviving members of PF. Maybe we can hope for that Nick Mason's infamous footage of 5-man Floyd?

Great news!
Especially, if the documentary will be followed by a Barrett Immersion release. [-o<

From 'Brain Damage'

Syd Barrett documentary - film maker Roddy Bogawa clarifies!

Written by Matt
Monday, 29 June 2015

Storm Thorgerson working on Syd Barrett documentaryTwo years ago, the regular StormStudios newsletter referred to the documentary that Storm had been working on (which I had the pleasure to be included as one of Storm's interviewees). Providing some background to the project, they noted then that: "Since the end of 2011 Storm had been very busy filming a documentary with Rupert [Truman] about Pink Floyd's founder member, Syd Barrett. They filmed many interviews including old school friends, flat mates, girlfriends, fellow musicians and all the surviving members of Pink Floyd. So far it's proved a very enlightening experience..."

After Storm's sad passing, the reigns were passed to film maker Roddy Bogawa, following his work on the excellent documentary about Storm (Taken by Storm), which we've talked about elsewhere and is due for a release this autumn.

Over the weekend, some websites posted stories about the documentary, following a piece on the Mojo magazine website. However, before you get too carried away with what has been stated in various places, we've had some clarification from Roddy over the story. "Now the cat is out of the bag, we'd like to clarify a few things - Mojo got a few things wrong - the correct title is 'Have You Got It Yet?' and the film is not being released this summer. We are shooting the last bits and entering the editing stage."

We'll obviously keep you posted on all the confirmed, accurate information on this hotly anticipated documentary, which promises to be a fascinating look at Barrett, but is some way off completion. In the meantime, for all you Facebookers out there, they have just set up a page for the documentary. You can find it at www.facebook.com/haveyougotityet

Apparently, the documentary will be released in 2016.
The film’s full working title is “Barrett: Have You Got It Yet?” And, contrary to yesterday’s reports, the film is not scheduled for release later this year. The source tells us the film hasn’t yet been completed, and will likely be released in mid-2016.

Slightly older information, still about a 2015 release:
