The Red Shoes
Ballet score composed for Kildare Village's Christmas media campaign
vStream have worked on three projects with Michael Fleming to date and now consider him to be our ‘go-to’ composer for all projects and speculative opportunities. Michael's attitude to the working relationship, his aptitude for the work, and ability to manage different parties and collaborators from musicians to studios, ensures his contribution to a project integrates seamlessly.
On a personal level as the writer/director on both projects, I have found Michael's ability to work within multiple genres and interpret the overall vision has meant that the films have been truly brought to life. In both 'The Red Shoes' and ‘Elbow Saves Christmas’ there was no dialogue, and the music acted very much as another character. In The John Jameson Story, the brief was very challenging in creating a series of new compositions in the style of a Jacques Lousier Bach arrangement. Michael stepped up and surpassed our requirements. Michael is an incredibly hard worker and is a genial person who has a very positive and ‘can-do’ attitude to all projects. Both myself, and vStream, look forward to continued collaborations in the future
