Jenny Sheridan edited the three new episodes with the lovely Desiree Ivegbuna as her edit support and rough assembly editor. Jenny  said “The most challenging thing was actually when it was all over. Being a part of something that I’d grown up watching, loving and quoting was just incredible. I had to pinch myself on a daily basis. Then when we picture locked the final episode it felt like a historic moment, the end of an era really”

Congratulations Desiree and Jenny, we can’t wait to watch

Pulse Films for Apple Music
Director: John Dower

The documentary will be released on the 24th November on Apple Music to coincide with the release of the Who Built The Moon album. It includes footage from an intimate gig in York Hall, London to promote the album.

Franco Bogino edited the film and said “It was great fun to work on because Noel is a right joker, so the material was very funny. There was limited access so we had to make the little we had go far. The best thing about it was that I got on the guest list for the concert featured in the doc, and I got to meet Noel. It was very brief, the only thing he said to me was ‘Don’t f**k it up you c***’!”
