In this webinar, Lord Puttnam will discuss the work of two of his great friends and collaborators – director Alan Parker and composer Ennio Morricone. Both men had a huge influence on Lord Puttnam’s life, career and body of work, upon which he will reflect. Morricone is widely considered to be one of the greatest film composers of all time, and Parker’s film credits including award-winning musicals such as Bugsy Malone, Fame, The Wall, The Commitments and Evita.

This webinar looks back on how Morricone and Parker got their start in the industry and what we can learn from their respective pathways to success. It will also highlight the importance of music and how it contributes to the success of a film or TV show. More broadly, the webinar will explore how a thriving alliance can add to the success of a nation’s cultural output.
