Alex Bedford and Ben Parkin, Exec Producers and Founders of Dirty Films, celebrate their anniversary
Dirty turns two! To mark the occasion, we’ve chosen one track for each of our 24 months alive - and we’d love to share them with you. Consider this a playlist of sounds that have kept us ticking.
We’ve got it covered – from bossa nova, to 70’s sci-fi, to soulful harmonies to the big bangers. All aboard! Everyone's welcome!
Nine of the tracks are from artists we’ve made music videos for, including work for Julio Bashmore, Gorgon City, Bastille, Las Aves and Soulwax label-signed Emmanuelle, to recent ad collaborations with Rival Consoles.
The rest of the tracks have been spinning whilst we’ve been making films for Jaguar, Duracell, Ford, LV=, Jacobs, Littlewoods – and also art documentaries and a comedy TV pilot too. Dirty is the product of two old school mates wanting to build a working culture of their own, whilst making the good stuff that resonates - as the industry moulds itself into a new kind of beast.
This is our two-year audio diary. Happy listening! Dirty xx
P.S. we are throwing a Dirty house party in a tree-house themed venue to celebrate moving into the terrible twos: Thursday 12th October, EC2A area. For RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org
See you there for a Dirty martini and a dance. But be quick, spaces are filling pronto!
