After making a number of short films and publicity profiles for Paramount, Twentieth-Century Fox and Universal Pictures, Paul Joyce established his reputation as a film-maker with a particular gift for profiles of directors, actors, artists and musicians. He also wrote and directed in the theatre, returning to film and TV with a BBC Play For Today and a classic four-part series of Dr Who with Tom Baker. His company name, Lucida Productions, has become synonymous with high-end arts documentaries and his films have been nominated both for EMMY and CABLE ACE awards, being shown at over 20 Festivals worldwide. Currently SkyArts are sponsoring the digital re-mastering of the entire Lucida output, extending to over 30 films.
