Daniel McNicoll, writer and producer on Glastonbury: Isle of Light, said: “Ian Brodie’s talents as a photographer and writer have allowed him to sell over a million books. He understands both the lens and the landscape. With his background as an experienced artist and writer, Glastonbury (both the film and the region), are in very capable hands. I am a true fan of Ian’s work and can’t wait to get my own copy of what I know will be an amazing book.”
Mr Brodie said: “I have a number of passions in my life – film, tourism, photography, mythology, history and writing are part of my soul. It is an absolute joy to have all of these combined in Glastonbury: Isle of Light and I am delighted to be part of this project.
“I have worked with Lord of the Rings illustrator John Howe and Weta Workshop director Sir Richard Taylor on my previous books, so it’s great to see them involved in this picture as well.”
The Visit Somerset team met with Glastonbury: Isle of Light executive producers Nuala Barton (mother of actress Mischa Barton), and Leon Clarence, CEO of Motion Picture Capital (partnering Galatia Films on the Glastonbury: Isle of Light project, to discuss what it will mean for Somerset.
Mr Brodie added: “I have a love of England in general but particularly with Glastonbury, which is the home of my ancestors. I have visited a number of times and have a very strong affiliation with the area, its geography and history. It is great to now be a part of its legacy.”
