Wire are the definitive post-punk band.
Whilst many of their new wave peers nostalgically trade on 70s hits, Wire refuse to look back, remaining focussed on the future and making new work which is, in the words of The Quietus "defiantly modern".
For the first time Wire are collaborating on a feature documentary about themselves. Directors Malcolm Boyle and Graham Duff are working with the band to create a film that has the humour, unpredictability, surrealist edge and creative agility of a Wire song.
The name of this documentary is People In A Film.
You can help make this documentary about this most unique and influential of British bands happen.
Initial shooting has already started, capturing Wire in the legendary Rockfield Studios recording a new album, as well as extensive in-depth interviews with Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey, Matt Simms and Bruce Gilbert. We've also shot footage of a special one off event which reunited Wire's original line-up.
We're now seeking supporters to help us complete the next stage of the film. We initially need financial support for the researching and sourcing of archive materials, and to shoot further interviews with key players in the Wire story.
Once this next stage has been completed, we'll then seek final funding to complete the final edit and dubbing theatre mix, and cover copyright clearances.
We hope to draw together the international community of Wire fans, music documentary viewers and lovers of music and cutting-edge culture who would be fascinated to see inside a group of artists who continue to leave such a distinctive mark on modern music and culture.
