Radford Music Composes a Magical Orchestral Score for ASDA's Christmas Ad

Radford Music has  provided an original orchestral score for the festive and heart-warming ASDA Christmas Advert 2019 ‘Northern Lights’ as part of the 'Let's Make Christmas Special' campaign.

The original music ‘Lighting Up Christmas’ composed by Rohan Stevenson and James Radford was recorded by a 60 piece orchestra at Angel Recording Studios.

James worked closely with AMV creative directors (Jay Phillips, Neil Clarke) and producers (Nick Godden, Felicity Bamber) to craft the composition to perfectly match the beautiful visuals and to capture both the excitement and emotion of the two minute film. The soundtrack provides the main character Tilly with a musical ‘theme’ and follows the action closely throughout Jack and Tilly’s adventure spreading magic and joy around their town.

The film was directed by Tom Green (Stink Films) and James was delighted to work with Tom again having previously worked together on Guinness ‘The Purse’.

ASDA launched the ‘Let’s make Christmas extra special’ campaign on the 2nd November with the debut of the full two minute film which will be followed by a series of 60-second and 30-second commercials.
