    Profile:John Lunn/Composer/BAFTA Nom/Downton Abbey

    in Movies

    John is probably best known currently for scoring the hugely successful flagship ITV/Carnival Films drama, Downton Abbey. For which, he was awarded an EMMY AWARD 2012, and has also received an EMMY nomination 2013. Having won a best TV score RTS Award 2010, as well as having been nominated for both aBAFTA and Ivor Novello award for his evocative score for Sky's Going Postal, and having received nominations for a BAFTA Award for Best Original Score for his wonderful music to the BBC Dickens adaptation, Little Dorrit, John Lunn’s music possesses a wonderfully unique voice that spans the spectrum of musical styles. Classically trained yet contemporary in attitude, he combines a highly intelligent and sensitive approach, with a sound that always hits at the emotional heart of a piece. Along with the highest production values, and a continual desire to discover new colours and sounds, it is not hard to see why John is continuously in such high demand.John is currently scoring the highly anticipated BBC drama, Burton And Taylor starring Dominic West and Helena Bonham-Carter as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, having just completed the BBC’s The White Queen, based on the bestselling Phillipa Gregory novels, and the BBC’s reimagining of the Hitchcock classic,The Lady Vanishes. Other recent works, as well as having included scoring Mob Films adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal for Sky1, and the much acclaimed 2012 new year's BBC/Masterpiece Dickens centenary adaptation of The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, also include a compelling 14 part re-imagining of another Dickens' classic, Little Dorrit for the BBC, (for which John also received an EMMY nomination) and a wonderfully chilling one off Xmas special feature adaptation of MR James' classic ghost story, Turn of the Screw for the BBC, starring John Hurt.

    The king’s speech,Downton Abbey,Conan,My Week with Marilyn, Jack Ryan, buffalo soldiers, Cinderella,Jude, The red violin(the list goes on.)

The historical roots behind Judy's rise to OSCAR, EMMY and BAFTA nominations, are to be found at around half past three on Sunday afternoons when the young Judy would leave her sisters playing in the garden, make her way into the house, close the curtains and immerse herself in the old historical black and white movies from the 1930s &40s, shown on the BBC.  Fate brought Jude to the BBC at a time of brilliant new British comedy where she worked on productions such asBlack Adder, Hi de Hi, Rory Bremner,Reeves and Mortimer& Mr Bean.This gave her a fantastic training & helped her moveas a freelance set decorator into the British film industry. Jude's career since then has been a roll call of talents & places.She worked in Ireland with designer Jim Clay on Maeve Binchy's Circle of Friends, director Neil Jordan on Ondineand producer, David Putnam on War of the Buttons. Her long term collaboration with the late Simon Holland took her to the forests of Borneo to work on The Sleeping Dictionary.Then to Prague with Dino de Laurentis and designer Allan Starski on Hannibal rising&Terry Gilliam on his interpretation of The Brothers Grimm. Back to Britain for Death at a Funeral, with Michael Howells's and Frank Oz. Stephen Fry's Bright Young Things and David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises: With old BBC colleague Donal Woods, Judy has completed the 2nd series of the hugely successful Downton Abbey for which they have been nominated for many prestigious awards.You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com Link: www.123FilmEasy.com.

    The Whispering Swarm, by Michael Moorcock

    in Radio

    On April 16th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review the new semi-biographical novel by fantasy grandmaster Michael Moorcock "The Whispering Swarm." This remarkable book should be of special interest to magicians and Hermetic students. Moorcock is the modern heir to the mantles of J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robert E.Howard. His fiction is deeply magical and steeped in Hermetic lore. The Whispering Swarm is somewhat experimental. His protagonist is himself and he tells his life story up to his passage from adolesence into adulthood through the entrance into a secret enclave in the multiverse, inhabited by historical and fictional characters he has read about. Raised in London during and after WWll, he discovers an ancient hidden medieval village called the Alsacia, or The Sanctuary, inhabited by magical monks in an old Abbey, a tavern full of swashbuckling cavaliers, including the Musketeers from Dumas and a glamorous Hughwaywoman called Molly Midnight. He also lives in the real world, having a wife and children and a job as an editor, but is driven to escape into The Sanctuary by the tumult of Whispering voices in his head (the Swarm). Most importantly it explores Moorcock's two warring personalities in emotional spiritual and political conflict. He is a romantic at heart and an agnostic socialist in intellect -- so he fights to save King Charles from Cromwell's Ax because his cavalier heroes need his abilities to walk between the worlds. One wonders all through the book, just how much of the fantasy is real, or a metaphor for reality. So, if you want to visit an adult's Land of Oz then follow us through the London fog to the hidden gates of the Sanctuary and we'll find the Swan with Two Necks tavern for a shant of ale and an hour of High Magical Adventure.

    My thoughts about what I am watching and the news from TV that interest me. Talked about Downton Abbey ending. Also talked about Bloodline on NetFlix, DIG on USA is discussed. Fortitude on Pivot is taking crazy turns and twists but is a good watch. I also talked about Bill OReilly on Letterman and Nancy Snyderman. A great time talking TV from one man's perspective..mine.
