Dealing’ with the Devil: Credits

Back to Dealin’ with the Devil Main Page

The film would be nothing without the help of the musicians involved. The film lives and breathes music, and the people who played in Dr. Marigaux’s bands give the film its energy. Hamish Fyfe, Jim Strang and Rob Waddell are three fine musicians who push me further and further. The guys in the Dr. Marigaux’s Amazing Gospel String Band live up to the name – those guys are incredible: Anna Bowen, Craig Monk, Alan Starrat, Pamela Seccombe and John Dodd took my scores and turned them into great sounds. Anthony Ritchie deserves talks for his help with the scoring of the music for the Gospel band. And the end of the film would simply not have worked without Clare Adams and the Sounds Nor’Easterly Choir.

A Film is also nothing but the sum of its parts, and everyone who helped out in the production is deserving of a big thank you. The gospel concert was shot by five camera operators who each made great contributions. The very tight CUs of me singing are by Andis Kavalieris, who took the 450mm lens I handed him and managed to get those fantastic, intimate shots. Anna Wilde was at stage left, and Petra Paignton and my daughter Sophie Davison operated the cameras from the high angles. I was especially glad to have Petra in the crew since she’s not only greta with a camera, but also was a close friend of Ralph’s. Special thanks are due to Philip Schlup, who not only did a great job with the hand-held CUs in the gospel concert, but also was ready to drop everything and come out shoot some extra video.
