I was hired to document the making of the Wu-Tang Clan album “8 Diagrams”; this is a brief assemblage of interview clips that I created.
I have spent a lot of my life around musicians and working with these guys was fascinating. On the one hand, it was one of those cases of “What you see is what you get;” they really are the characters they portray in the music and it’s not always pretty. Then, as I spent more time with them, I gained a greater appreciation for what they had achieved against that background. RZA, the producer (seen here in red T-shirt), has a fine creative mind and magnificent command of the many elements at play. Btw, I was told that this was the first time that he played piano on camera.
