A documentary which follows the famous British artist Marc Quinn over a year in his life as he creates, exhibits and sells new and indeed old work in galleries across the world. We gain a unique insight into the whole business of being a successful contemporary artist in the highly lucrative but cutthroat contemporary art world. And we watch as he comes up with exciting new ideas in unexpected places and then brings them to fruition often on an industrial scale. The film is made in an intimate, hand held style by award-winning director Gerry Fox who has made previous films with the artist and so is able to question and prod him forcefully from behind the Canon 5-D camera.
