A short film about St George is snatching the English patron saint from the jaws of white nationalism. The 90 second short paints St George in his true colours - as a symbol of multiculturalism.
Featuring actors and members of the English public, the film was directed by Kate McMullen and shot by DOP Ahmet Husseyin on 16mm film in locations across London.
The soundtrack is a turbo-charged rearrangement of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique by Twenty Below Music in collaboration with cinematic composer Gabriel Ness and production duo NOISE NETWORK. Dubbed the 'Symphonie Brittanique' , the modernised track packs quite a punch with its slow-building choral chants and hard-hitting drums.
Gabriel Ness said: “As a commercial composer, it was a welcome change adapting the well-known orchestral work Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz. The ominous brass fanfare and powerful drums perfectly captured the essence of the amazing St George film which we were scoring, and the modernisation of the story made it clear the music should pursue this as well.”
NOISE NETWORK said: “When applying contemporary programmed beats to the piece it was important to respect the ebb and flow of the orchestral dynamics and tempo. Our main priority was to treat this great Romantic-era piece as respectfully as possible while we pulled it into the present day.”
