Very pleased that the made for cinema documentary Attacking The Devil directed by Jacqui Morris (our second collaboration together, after the twice BAFTA nominated McCullin) has won a coveted Grierson Award for Best Historical Documentary.
For a full list of winners take a look at the Grierson Trust website here.
We are presently in the final stages of our third collaboration, Nureyev, which will be appearing in cinemas next year.

Over the course of the last year or so I’ve been working again with brilliant director Jacqui Morris – with whom I’ve collaborated previously on twice BAFTA nominated (and award winning score) McCullin and the multi award winning / Grierson nominated Attacking The Devil. This film tells the story of acclaimed ballet dancer Rudolph Nureyev, told beautifully and uniquely – Nureyev is on its way into the final stages of production – with cinema release slated for 2017.

Proud to have been part of the second film by the makers of multi BAFTA nominated McCullin, this time documenting Harold Evans, the former editor of The Sunday Times, and his plight finding justice for those affected by the Thalidomide tragedy. Directed by Jacqui Morris, Attacking The Devil had previously won the Sheffield Documentary festival and goes on limited cinema release from January 2016 and released by The Weinstein Company.
The film has had some overwhelmingly positive reviews. For more information visit the films dedicated website here.
I’ll be posting snippets of the score up on this site in the near future…
