  • Bach in Lights -  Vimeo Staff Pick
    Bach in Lights - Vimeo Staff PickAwarded 'Vimeo Staff Pick', this is a video I commissioned as part of a series of visualisations. Working with the talented artist Alan Warburton (who is new to classical music) and paired him up with a classical music professor. Armed with technical information, Alan was inspired to create this beautiful video that guides the viewer through the music. The video went viral and Alan was interviewed by several high profile magazines and festivals.
  • Island Songs - The Film
    Island Songs - The FilmI produced the film Island Songs with BAFTA-winning composer Ólafur Arnalds and award winning director Baldvin Z. Filmed over 7 weeks, across 7 locations in their native Iceland, producing 7 songs and a feature length music documentary. Once produced, the second phase was to secure distribution. I organised a screening at London's Barbican centre with a Q&A; this resulted in several festivals showcasing the film, distribution on iTunes and working with Eagle Rock to secure international television dates and in-flight entertainment.
