Tim Whitby Director on working with Mike -
Working with Mike Smith was a pleasure and a success. The two short films we made together were silent and the music was therefore an absolutely crucial part of the storytelling.
He has very strong ideas but is also a sensitive collaborator; which makes him an ideal screen composer. His skill and versatility as a musician meant that we could very quickly try different things and experiment to picture in the edit. We worked together on assemblies as well as the final picture. It was fun. And it was on time.
The two films were very different tonally and Mike composed music with great energy and humour as well emotional power for both.
