Concrete Circus: the films and music

Great feedback on Concrete Circus: Twitter trending, C4 online site straining, YouTube view clocking goodness. I’m very proud of the documentary and the films we made. The thing that’s invisible in the documentary is the process of my involvement with and input to the 4 films and their directors, but it’s possibly the most rewarding part of the experience for me. I loved the collaboration with Brett Novak, Kendy Ty, Stu Thomson and Claudiu Voicu – thanks guys!

Here are links to the new films and the finale of Concrete Circus, Barbican Bolero.

Keelan Philips: Release (by Kendy Ty)
Danny MacAskill: Industrial Revolutions (by Stu Thomson)
Kilian Martin: A Skate Illustration (by Brett Novak)
Storm: Origins (by Claudiu Voicu)
Keelan, Danny, Kilian, Paul and Phil: Barbican Bolero (by Mike Christie)

Also lots of people are asking about the music in Concrete Circus. The main score, along with the music used in Storm:Origins and over the Barbican finale, was composed by Ian Masterson and is available on iTunes. Thomas Beach also provided some of the documentary tracks used in Concrete Circus, as well as collaborating with Ian on the music for my documentaries Jump London and Jump Britain.

The music for the other 3 films:

Kilian Martin – A Skate Illustration: Rescue Radio by Soft Bullets.
Keelan Phillips – Release: track composed for the film by Oliver Boni.
Danny MacAskill – Industrial Revolutions: The Wolves by Ben Howard.

Thoroughly loved making Concrete Circus. Hopefully we’ll get it out to the rest of the world very soon. Watch this space for more details. The whole project (including all the new films) is © Renegade Pictures and ChristieHQ so don’t get any funny ideas ;O)

    Hi Mike, Great to hear that Concrete Circus is going to be available sometime in December via iTunes. We have been raving about it ever since we first saw it on C4. Our friends down in NZ will be pleased to know they too will be able to access it soon – as you cant pick up the C4 website down there. Fantastic work – well done. Jono
