LIONHEART is a short film inspired by James Bay's debut album Chaos and the Calm which was developed as part of The James Bay Film Project - launched in partnership with Talenthouse and the British Film Institute (BFI).
The film was written and directed by Patrick Lawrence and developed in collaboration with James.
James chose to work with Patrick after seeing his trailer submission.
As Executive Producer, I worked closely with Patrick throughout to ensure that James' music drove the story and vice versa.
LIONHEART premiered at the BFI Future Film Festival and was screened at SXSW a month later.
