Jack Arnold is a BIFA winning and RTS nominated score composer, producer and musical director working in feature film, television drama and documentary on a wide range of award-winning work.
Jack scored the critically acclaimed feature film – and BAFTA Scotland 2019’s Best Picture – Wild Rose, directed by Tom Harper, and starring Jessie Buckley and Julie Walters, for which he won the 2019 BIFA for Best Music. A featured song from the film, Glasgow: No Place like Home, which Jack produced was shortlisted for Best Song at the 2020 Academy Awards, and won several other major industry awards. Other projects include The Level, a thriller series for ITV1; comedy drama series Loaded for C4/AMC; and Holy Flying Circus, a BAFTA-nominated comedy film written by Tony Roche and directed by Owen Harris about the events surrounding the 1979 release of Monty Python‘s The Life of Brian, for which Jack received an RTS Award nomination for Best Score in 2012.
Jack writes in many styles, his music variously described as beautiful, magical, muscular, sensitive, visceral and tense. He prefers to think of scoring as filmmaking, rather than composing. The picture leads, and the composer’s job is to follow the clues and find the perfect tone.
His collaborative relationship with Tom Harper is a long one, beginning with several short films, and then Tom’s debut feature The Scouting Book for Boys in 2009, written by Jack Thorne. Also penned by Thorne, 2014’s War Book followed, with Jack writing a song for 2015’s The Woman In Black: Angel of Death soundtrack, additional music for the BBC’s 2016 adaptation of War and Peace, and on-set music composition and direction for 2019’s The Aeronauts starring Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.
Other work includes Niall MacCormick’s debut feature film Albatross, starring Felicity Jones and Jessica Brown Findlay; legal drama series Striking Out for RTÉ, The Beckoning Silence for C4/Discovery, and multi-award winning short film, Mousie, directed by David Bartlett.
