I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to score this short film version of Twelfth Night, produced by the I W Learning Zone. This clip showcases the main musical theme. I also produced the sound effects and recorded the narration (by my wife Andrea) for this opening section.

The Woman Who Married A Pig. Short Film by Laurence Weedy.I was lucky enough to be given the job of producing the music for this wonderful short animation. The film is a fairy tale about the vanity of two men, the victims of their actions and eventual retribution. The story takes its influence from tales of medieval animal trials and Tom Wolf’s ‘Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test’. Inspiration for the film’s images comes from the almost surreal paintings of 16th century artist Giovanni Di Paulo and the early Technicolor demonstration mode.

Soundtrack and animation. I was honoured to be asked to produce a soundtrack for a short film, It Doesn’t Take Much, produced by the Zakynthos Youth Theatre Group.

The film ends with a sequence, in which a drawn paper butterfly takes off and flies away. This image must have lodged it’s self into my subconscious, as the first lines came without any thought: “When a butterfly beats it’s wings, who knows the trouble it brings. To a distant place, or to outer space, and the monsters that lurk within”. This refers to Edward Lorenz’s famous Butterfly Effect, that states that something as insignificant as the beating of a butterfly’s wings can lead to a hurricane many miles away.

Worlds Apart, an Isle of Wight Learning Zone production. Initially they used music by Pink Floyd but had difficulty getting permission to use it. The original music fitted the mood just right so I was asked to produce something in a similar style.

For this sequence from It Doesn’t Take Much, I took inspiration from various post-rock pieces, as this genre often incorporates dynamic changes of volume and mood.
