with Q&A by the filmmakers and Library Music legends Alan Hawkshaw and John Cameron

The Library Music Film follows record producer, composer and library music enthusiast Shawn Lee as he travels from his recording studio in London, through Europe, and California, USA to search out and interview the great pioneers of library music.

Today this music has a loyal and growing following of DJs, Tastemakers, Record Producers and Beatmakers, Journalists and Vinyl enthusiasts around the World. Sections of Library Music tracks have been sampled to form the backbone to some of the biggest, chart topping singles by contemporary artists.

Legends such as Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, John Cameron, Barbara Moore, Janko Nilovic, Brian Bennett and Stef ano Torossi share their incredible stories and amazing anecdotes from the golden era.

Interviews with top DJs and producers from the UK including Mark Rae and Fatboy Slim as well as some of the biggest names in US hip hop such as Cut Chemist (Jurassic5), Young Einstein (Ugly Duckling) and Marvels soundtrack composer Adrian Younge reveal why library music continues to have such an important role to play in today’s music industry.
