‘Under The Volcano’ (2021) is a brand new independent documentary film about Sir George Martin’s AIR Studios in Montserrat. The documentary features Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits as a part of a nostalgic look back at the legendary studio.
Alongside Mark Knopfler, Guy Fletcher featured in the film speaking about the recording Brothers in Arms album.
In the 1980s the Caribbean island was a place where the world’s biggest recording artists defined an era. Built by Beatles’ producer Sir George Martin, AIR Studios was the birthplace of mega-hits such as “Money for Nothing”.
After a decade of hits, the studio was destroyed when the island was hit by series of devastating natural disasters.
‘Under the Volcano’ is the definitive account of George Martin’s Studio, a place that generated a perfect storm of talent, technology, and isolation, ushering in music that would live on long after the last tape rolled.
Cody Greenwood was the writer and producer of the film, and the director was Gracie Otto. The full running time of the film is one hour and thirty-five minutes.
