Music inspires art y'know
I worked on the recent Becks Music inspires Art project that you may have heard or seen.
The campaign consists of lots of mini festivals at venues around the country encompassing all things musicy, arty and everything in between.
One of the key elements of the campaign consisted of lots of wonderful musicians pairing up with amazing directors to make short films that they then soundtrack with totally new music. The short films have been exclusively previewed on each leg of the tour.
Shown above are films created by Plaid and the fantabulous Aoife Mcardle and Grant White, the Skittles-inspired rainbow of colour animation is the vision of Tom Scholefield aka Konx-om-Pax and the coolest new Scot on the block Hudson Mohawke. The last one is the handy work of Mercury nominated musos The Invisible and Poppie Skold.
In addition to these there are short films by the one and only Lightspeed Champion (written, directed and soundtracked by him alone!) and those brooding New Cross kids These new puritans directed by Saam Farahmand.
You can find out more about it here
and I'll post a few more picture and the last couple of films at a later date.
