Dexter Fletcher • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #269
Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 268 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Ladies and gentlemen, please set aside a nice chunk of time to get properly acquainted with superstar director and actor DEXTER FLETCHER!
The man behind the blockbusting Elton John biopic ‘Rockteman’, the wonderful Proclaimers musical ‘Sunshine On Leith’ and one of the team behind the phenomenal ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Deter has been doing more in the world of cinema than can be fully documented right here… Add to that his extensive work in front of the camera in a good handful of Guy Ritchie flicks, Bugsy Malone and of course, who could forget Press Gang, this is the guy to talk to about film and television. And this is exactly what Pip does, my friends. And it is a thorough scorcher. Everything from the ramping up of Dexter’s career, to his work on Wild Bill, walking before he could run with his film career, techniques behind Sunshine On Leith, learning on the job, how memory plays into biopics - reliable or not, the ‘f*ck it’ vs ‘f*ck you’ attitude, being ‘exposed’ - as in out in the open - when it comes to some jobs, navigating the challenge of directing and the personal cost of everything we do - a lot going on, you’ll love it. And you’ll love ROCKETMAN too!
