Sky picks up graduate’s music doc

A recent graduate from London’s Ealing MetFilm School has seen his music documentary picked up by UK pay TV operator Sky.

Giorgio Guernier

Giorgio Guernier’s Suburban Steps to Rockland documents the story of the Ealing Club, a small rhythm and blues bar in West London that was the birthplace of the Rolling Stones.

Guernier took four years to produce the documentary, and recently completed MetFilm School’s six-month course on practical filmmaking.

It will air on the Sky Arts channel in the UK this Sunday, September 8.

Guernier said: “I’m such a music fan, and living in Ealing I heard about the Ealing Club and that it was London’s first ever blues club. I did some more research, interviewed a couple of people and the project just grew from there.

“It’s a story that I hope will help put the borough on the map as a place of musical heritage. This story, now that Sky has it, could give Ealing an historical music heritage similar to Memphis, Nashville, Liverpool or even New Orleans.”
