Following on from his recent Apple Music documentary with Sam Smith, James Barber collaborates again with Smith, this time delivering a teaser/trailer for his world tour.


"I was approached around this time last year to document Sam’s life over the next 12+ months, working across both stills and video. After several months working together this lead to an Apple Music documentary which I had the pleasure of directing and then most recently I was asked to create a teaser / trailer that showcased what fans could expect to see on the road at Sam’s upcoming live shows.

"We had a really incredible stage and lighting design to work with but Ed Hubert (DOP) and Charlie Rizek (Steadi) did an amazing job capturing the energy of Sam’s performance and also the stunning set design in a very tight shooting schedule.

"Pat Walsh (editor) and Thomas Mangham (colourist) also worked their magic in what was a really tight turnaround."
