Laurie Hill creates more 2ManyDjs live visuals

Posted by Laurie Hill at 18:12, May 24th, 2013

Director:
Laurie Hill

I’ve mentioned it before but haven’t gone in to a great amount of detail but over the past few years I’ve been heavily involved in creating live concert visuals for 2ManyDjs and also David and Steph’s rather wonderful and generous Radio Soulwax project.

Late summer 2012 is festival season and so I was pretty busy then with some nice things for the live set.

Been doing some off and on work on a new Radio Soulwax hour – still to be released but in the pipeline!

For a large chunk of late spring and summer 2012 I was involved on a major feature film project, animating and designing a few tasty wotnots for a key scene – anyway – it’s a whopping great film and should be out in the UK in 2013! Why not check out IMDb?

Laurie Hill news update

Posted by Laurie Hill at 18:06, May 24th, 2013

I know – it’s been a looong time since the last update!

That doesn’t mean I’ve not been busy though – it means I’ve been more busy! Anyway – here goes a few retrospective updates …

Laurie Hill creates Dickens’s Dream for Dickens and London at the Museum Of London

Posted by Laurie Hill at 1:38, February 26th, 2012

Director:
Laurie Hill

Just a note to say I’ve created an animation for Dickens and London - a major exhibition being held at the Museum of London and marking the bicentenary of Charles Dickens’s birth in 2012!

It’s called Dickens’s Dream and is displayed with Dickens’s own writing desk and chair! Its inspiration is the painting of the same name by Robert William Buss.

Dickens and London is the UK’s first major exhibition on the author for over 40 years and is on until June 2012 at the Museum of London.

Laurie Hill on Radio Soulwax

Posted by Laurie Hill at 0:08, February 26th, 2012

Director:
Laurie Hill

Thought it was worth a wee post to say I’ve been involved for the past couple of years creating visuals for 2ManyDjs ‘Under The Covers’ live shows that have toured all over the world.

I’ve also been involved with the ongoing and rather groovy Radio Soulwax project which launched back in July last year.

I made the Jack In The Box and Celestial Voyage Pt.1 hours and also have some bits and bobs in the Under The Covers tour compilations and Introversy.
