Jury 審査員

AbiはLeland Music及びLeland Originalsの創設者であり代表取締役です。真の起業家であり、既に映画業界と音楽業界で仕事をしていた彼女は、19歳の時に音楽監督になるというミッションに乗り出しました。自分の得意分野を見つけるため、映画音楽作曲家達を質問攻めにし、ソーホーにある数々の映画制作会社を訪ねて歩くことから始めた彼女の直感は正しく、またその熱意も報われることになります。数年後、英国で活躍するフィーチャー映画の音楽監督の一人になった彼女は、Kevin Macdonaldのような映画監督と共に「Touchning The Void」や「The Last King of Scotland」といった作品に携わることになったのです。

2005年、AbiはLeland Musicを起業し、自身のミッションをコマーシャルやブランドにまで広げることにしました。初めの頃はSony、Nike、Lloyds、Honda、そしてHovisの著名なキャンペーンに携わり、会社の名声を上げていきました。2010年以降のJohn Lewisのクリスマスキャンペーンは全て彼女が監督しています。毎年新しいバージョンを待ちわびる視聴者がいるこのキャンペーンは、音楽が鍵となっています。

今日までの彼女の活躍を早送りしてみると、Abiはユニークで高い評価を受けているチームを築きあげ、世界有数のブランド、広告代理店、そして映画制作会社と密接に連携し仕事をしてきました。最近ではパラリンピックの「We're The Superhumans」、John Lewisの「Buster The Boxer」、Netflix/E4のテレビシリーズ「Crazyhead」に携わっています。
