On the Record

Lem Lawrence recently completed grading, graphics and online work for Sam Smith’s new Apple Music documentary On the Record’ for his upcoming album ‘The Thrill of it All’

Lem graded the 45min documentary on Flame at Halo Post, creating a rich, moody look, and also adding life and movement into black and white stills photography, with the use of parallax and lighting effects. The Director was James Barber.

The documentary will be available to download on Apple Music on the 3rd November.  In it Sam Smith reflects on the success of his debut album, “In The Lonely Hour,” and how it’s impacted his life, his work and not least the new album.
