So, a bit of radio silence recently but I have been away and also… I have been working at the lovely Factory Studios for the last few weeks – one of their engineers Anthony Moore took on a big project and they needed an extra pair of hands.
Last week I took over a job from Sam Robson for BBH and St. John Ambulance – cue a fair amount of music editing and a lot of to and fro-ing over the stuff at the end, and voila, a truly harrowing but worthwhile job.
It’s been one of the fiercest things I have had to work on, but its got a pretty strong message so I figure it’s a good one, check it out:
It was directed by Benito Montorio, created by Dan Morris and Charlene Chandrasekaran, and produced by Matt Towell – nice one everyone, and thanks Factory for getting me involved!
I just won an award for sound design on the Guardian advert I worked on with Sam Brock from BBH!
Strictly speaking it’s silver but I am pretty pleased about it… it was a great project to work on and I am extremely grateful to Sam Brock and Davud Karbassioun at BBH for getting me involved.
If you don’t know what the Cannes Lions are, have a look here.
Directed by Ringan Ledwidge from Rattling Stick and written by Matt Fitch and Mark Lewis at BBH, its a cinematic twist on a well known fable, check it out if you haven’t seen it already:
Imagine is a series of documentaries directed and presented by Alan Yentob, creative director at the BBC. I wrote the music for the title sequences, all featuring animation by Bold Creative. The music before the title sequence on the link is not mine, it’s the pencil drawn animation bit so keep watching past the guitar intro.
I was lucky enough to be able to get the immensely talented Oliver Coates (cello) and Ruth Palmer (violin) involved – and I got to record them at the rather fancy Strongroom studios in Shoreditch.
