The Frederic Debreu video commercial

(Don’t forget to turn up your speakers)

Credits

The film was made by Claire at Interesting Digital. We work on projects together occasionally; some fun, some serious. (Readers from the old days may remember some Post Office-saving action…)

The original graphics – taken from the book cover and insert – were by Jason at Rawshock Design, who must be one of the most talented designers working in the UK book industry today.

Aside from the legendary Debreu, credit for the tune goes to Paul Thompson. A lover of Georges Brassens and Jake Thackray, Paul has promoted the work of Thackray through regular live performances, appearances on BBC radio, DVD production and, most recently, writing and recording for an album of long-lost Thackray songs.

And the playing, arrangement and recording was by Will Thompson, who was given the melody and a brief, and came back first time with something that couldn’t have been more perfectly-suited.

(I wrote the book.)

Please do share this if you feel so minded!
