New Art Films

Andy Delaney is a filmmaker from Leigh-on-Sea. He's been making films since leaving college - award-winning music videos for George Michael, Lauryn Hill, the Spice Girls Maroon 5 along with tv commercials and documentaries. Last year saw the release of his feature film 'Love is Blind’ a ‘magic realist romcom' starring Matthew Broderick, Chloe Sevigny, Aidan Turner and Shannon Tarbet. It’s out now on Amazon Prime. In the last few years, Andy set up to focus on artists, art institutions and schools. This allows him to work on projects that a more personal and heartfelt.
He shoots, edits and directs himself, working alongside a team of friends to create small films with high production values.

The Estuary 2021 launch film is a portrait of the Estuary in all of its guises - epic, wistful, hard-working, mysterious and celebratory. Shot over the summer Andy travelled up and down the river, often with Howard Greenhalgh, a veteran music video director and (recently qualified) drone pilot. The score was written by frequent collaborators Luke Branch (singer with Southend band Asylums) and Jennifer O'Neill (singer with Indian Queens). Another collaborator, Rees Broomfield, recorded and mixed the music at SS2 Studios in Southend. The intention of the film is to surprise, inspire and move, reflecting some of the root values of the Festival.
