Earth’s Tropical Islands is still on iPlayer. I was tasked with contributing additional music for this flagship BBC2 programme that was broadcast on New Year’s Day 2020, mainly contributing to the episode on Madagascar but also Borneo as well.
Tasked with writing a cinema ident that had the aim of driving short term competition entries with brand awareness, the Lidl cinema advertising campaign I was involved (there Frozen 2 tie-in) was awarded the Grand Prix at the Digital Cinema Media Awards in 2019.
The brief was to recreate a magical Disney atmosphere that would have wide melodic appeal. Gad it seemed to work as Lidl’s competition entries far exceeded expectations and the campaign delivered beyond pre-release targets. Go to the Music page for more info

It was a privilege scoring the epic orchestral music for this campaign. The client wanted an emotive score which had a melodic thread running throughout and one that would enable movie goers to feel more, more often.
Scored using live instruments, Spitfire Audio strings and brass, EWSO and NI Kontakt. Mix plugins were All SSL strips from UAD and mixed and mastered by the guru that is Thomas Gray.
This was a fun one to do – big traditional film orchestral sound they wanted. That’s what they got.
