We work with Simon Richardson who has been part of our team for over six years. He is our rock and extremely talented in everything, his work has been an asset to the growth of Queen of Extreme and the clients love him too. Simon has been composing and producing an eclectic array of music for many years now – everything from classical orchestral and chamber music, to contemporary dance, to rock and metal. Simon has a publishing deal with DeWolfe Music Publishing/Rouge Music, writing music for television globally. In 2009 he was nominated for best music at the L.A. Film Festival, for William Gilbey’s multi award-winning short film Father’s Day, and has scored countless other shorts, including the award-winning Possession (director Karen Wilson).
He has, to date, scored four feature films: Dark Rage (director Lee Akehurst), Wholer Days (director Alastair Paines), The Hike (director Rupert Bryan), and World of Hurt (director Simon Richardson), as well as contributing pieces to a number of others, including the critically acclaimed Ghosted (director Craig Viveiros).
He has produced music for the Colin Fry Live TV show (Living/CBS), the recent Spinal Tap 25th anniversary DVD, the BBC’s recent Magicians series and for the joint Channel 5/History Channel TV documentary Jack the Ripper: the Definitive Story.
