We have the privilege of working with idiojack, a highly skilled group of media pro’s!

Idiojack Studio is a collection of creative professionals, based across the Northwest, who specialise in Film, Graphics and Web. Professionalism and friendliness are high on our agenda. We aim to please and are always 100% committed to each and every single project that we do.

Idiojack’s film department is run by Adam McGrath, who’s film-making experience is wide ranging to say the least. From creating a range of website content for a summer camp in America to a promo for a brand new campaign for men’s mental health charity “Street Soccer Academy”, as well as creating a music video for New York Tourists, as they supported Status Quo in front of 9,000 people.

Adam and his team revel in the diverse projects that they undertake and are always excited to take on new projects.

Independent Film Enterprise: G&S Productions

M20 worked with these guys at our Live in the Village event in November 2014, and they produced an excellent short video on the event – so we know they can deliver professional results for projects with social and creative purposes!

Here’s a little bit about them from one of the team Will Plastow.

Gravel & Sugar Productions is a new independent film production company serving Manchester’s creative community. Bringing together an international team of award winning and festival-shortlisted filmmakers we aim to be distinctive, collaborative and creative in every project we take on.

To put it simply, we work closely and creatively with our clients to see their vision through from conception through to delivery – be that a live music film for a band in the Northern Quarter or a street performance with a cast of a hundred for a University research project in Uganda (actual examples).

An Interview with… BERNARD + EDITH

The aural equivalent of a David Lynch directed journey through the streets of South Manchester, Bernard + Edith are girl/boy musical duo, Nick Delap and Greta Carroll. Of home-grown-in-Whalley-Range stock, they make beautiful, ethereal songs that synthesise art and music, the kind that infiltrate multisensorily, leaving behind faint impressions of intangible silver wisps, haunting chimes and a deja vu-inducing mix of nostalgia and modernity. Having played to lucky crowds at a whole heap of different music hotspots in Manchester and beyond, they’re garnering national attention – we were lucky enough to catch up with them for a chat….

How did you guys come together?

Nick: We met in 2010 in a bar, we discovered that we were both into making music and Greta asked me to help her out with some tracks. They were amazing so we started making more together. One thing led to another.

What or who inspired/s your song lyrics and musical composition?

Julie London’s vocals, the Knife’s production and the atmospheres of Twin Peaks.

What has been your favourite venue to play in Manchester and why?

St Margaret’s Church, Whalley Range.

I grew up down the road and knew how nice it was. We started putting on shows here under the name WESTWOLF. The church is a beautiful space with great acoustics and the vicar is very open to art and music.

If Bernard + Edith could be described as a smell or scent, what would it be?

Old pennies

What would you ideally like to bring to the Manchester music scene?

Somthing fresh that can bring different people together and make them feel good.

Are there any events, releases or side projects that people should look out for in 2014?

Our single – Poppy came out on March 31st on Sways Records – www.swaysrecords.com

And after that we’re putting out a few more suprises ;£

What is the Bernard + Edith dream? (in a few words)

Lying in the grass in China with little puppies running around everywhere before playing a show to 1000000s of people in New York.

And finally, any words of wisdom for the M20 clan?

You have to enjoy urself, dont do things to appease others, always be humble and dont brag about urself.
