An old photo pushed the boundaries of curiosity! Paul Iacovou talks about the ideas behind creating a Hollywood documentary on the island of Cyprus that is slowly becoming larger than life.
Paul’s background is a hybrid of visual arts. From brand strategy to marketing, from image consulting to artiste management, his work transcends a multitude of disciplines. His passion however lies in filmmaking. With a heavy slant in the entertainment business, Paul has produced projects for many artistes including Sammy Davis Jr, The Bee Gees, Neil Sedaka and Engelbert Humperdinck. The documentary ‘If I Never Sing Another Song’, following veteran entertainer Joe Longthorne as he battled cancer whilst desperately continuing to perform was optioned by the Biography Channel. The film was subsequently offered to The Macmillan Cancer Charity as an aid to inspire other cancer sufferers. Storytelling and identity is at the heart of Paul’s work.
