the media lunch club

the media lunch club was established in 1994, by producer Martin Cahill, as a non-profit making, and politically neutral, networking society and has grown to become the film, tv and media industry's premiere café du commerce.

the media lunch club also hosts a networking evening each year, our prestigious ' Martin Cahill Memorial Lecture'.

 

In 2009, we started holding the additional and occasional 'Briefing Lunches', to focus on a more specialised subject in an intimate board-room setting such as, most recently, a "Brexit and the implications on film industry" . These lunches are free, and have proven very popular.

 

Membership is inexpensive and open to all in the media business.

 

On April 19th Sir Alan Parker joined us for our 200th lunch, and cut the special birthday cake!

David Arnold

David Arnold
Composer

Friday October 20th 2017

David Arnold is a British film composer best known for scoring five James Bond films, Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla and the television series Little Britain and Sherlock.

 

While attending a Sixth Form College in Luton, Arnold became friends with director Danny Cannon. Cannon initially created short films for which Arnold was asked to write the music. The two made their respective major film debuts with The Young Americans. Arnold then composed music for Stargate director Roland Emmerich's next two movies, Independence Day and Godzilla. In addition, he has scored various comedies, dramas, and nineteenth-century period pieces, as well as providing music for several British television shows including the 2000 remake of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Little Britain and Come Fly With Me.

 

Arnold was a Bond fan from an early age and in 1997produced Shaken and Stirred, an album featuring new versions of the themes from various James Bond films. John Barry, the composer of many of the themes on the album, was complimentary about Arnold's interpretation of his work and contacted Barbara Broccoli, producer of the then-upcoming Tomorrow Never Dies, to recommend Arnold as the film's composer. He stayed on to score the next 4 Bond films up until 2012 when he joined Danny Boyle to oversee the Olympics opening ceremony.
