USO Perform at British Film Institute Luminous Gala
In 2013 Urban Soul Orchestra were invited by the boutique production company The Light Surgeons to collaborate with them on a film and live performance for the prestigious BFI (British Film Institute) Gala Dinner. A 10-minute film about the BFI’s work and narrated by British Actor Idris Elba, was especially created for the occasion. Our Musical Director Stephen Hussey worked very closely with Sound Designer Jude Greenaway, co-composing and orchestrating the full orchestra parts for the film.
The evening was the British Film Institute's first ever fundraising event, in aid of preserving and extending their archives. The glamorous evening was complemented by The Light Surgeons' ingenious video projection installations, incorporating rarely seen stills and videos from the British Film Institute's archives.
