If you are a creative, we'd like to hear from you! We are searching for five participants to feature in a silent short film, exploring their perception of gratitude. The short film will be approximately 15-20 minutes in length and will be accompanied with music by Sohrab Uduman and James Wilson.

We actively encourage applications from all, including BME, disabled and LGBTQ+ artists.

By completing this form, you are not agreeing to participate in the project at this point. We will be in contact with all applicants in February 2021 with more information.

The film is subject to funding; shortlisted applicants will receive £576 for participating. We expect filming to take place in summer 2021.

Who's Involved

Born in 1991, James Wilson studied with Karin de Fleyt at the University of Leeds and Dr Martyn Shaw at Leeds Conservatoire. In 2020, James starred in 'Quantaform', a short film based on the music of the same name by Ambrose Field. As a soloist, James has premiered Sohrab Uduman's 'la cupidité de souffle', James Stephenson’s 'Magellan’s Clouds' and 'The Constellation Mobile' and Gregory Emfietzis' 'Gluttony: Live to Drink'. He has performed Dai Fujikura's 'Poison Mushroom' and Robert Bentall's 'Illegal to Die' for Nonclassical. His arrangement of Fauré's 'Pavane' for flute and string quartet has been performed live on BBC Radio 4.

Sohrab Uduman studied clarinet at Surrey University and composition with Vic Hoyland and Jonty Harrison, at Birmingham University, where he received a PhD in 1993. Awards include an international prize at the Huddersfield Festival of Contemporary Music, The Bourges International Competition for Electro-acoustic Music, the George Butterworth Award, the Oskar Back Foundation Prize for Young European Composers and the Prix Annelie de Man. His music has featured at many festivals, including the Oxford Festival of Contemporary Music, The Spitalfields Festival, the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, the Cheltenham International Festival of Music, Darmstadt, Britten Festival Brugges and Agora Festival at IRCAM, Paris.
