Spectrum Documentary

Collaborating with 2Funky Arts, we produced a feature documentary on the history of black music in Leicester, interviewing the best black music arts to emerge from the city since the 50s.

The Project
The Brief

ImageNova worked with 2Funky Arts to draw up concepts and approaches to the documentary (that involved interviews with a large number of people) to create a linear storyline that told the history of black music in Leicester, from the artists that either were, or are involved in the scene.


Our team explored how black music shaped Leicester's newly arriving African-Caribbean community throughout the 50s and 60s. In this documentary, we interview artists and DJ's that have shaped the scene from its inception until the modern day. We ask: how did they shape Leicester to be one of the leaders in the music scene?
