Director: Gareth Bryn | TV Drama – ITV
Stephanie Taylor is a versatile, highly creative composer and multi-instrumentalist whose work has attracted a number of high profile clients in the world of TV and Film including BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky.
Stephanie is best known for her work on one of the most watched new dramas on ITV in 2022, ‘Karen Pirie’, a 3×120’ drama series directed by Gareth Bryn (Line of Duty) and based on the best-selling novels from Val McDermid.
Other recent work of hers includes the soon to be released ITV drama ‘The Hunt for Raoul Moat’, a new 3×90’ drama from World Productions (Bodyguard, Vigil), and recently released Sky Original series ‘Arctic from Above’; a three part nature documentary produced by Lion TV.
Stephanie’s style is eclectic yet established, and she prides herself on her ability to boost story immersion and compassion through her thoughtful and evocative scores.
“From the earliest stage, Stephanie’s score has been the perfect compliment to Danielle’s film, empathetic, non-censorious, unsentimental. Stephanie respected her story-telling and the people in the film, and most importantly she caught the tragedy of what happened without ever resorting to anything cliched. I was so impressed, and sitting in the dub listening to it at its fullest, I was really struck by the skill and precision with which it had been composed.”
“Stephanie’s music is beautiful and seamless and so perfect for the series. She elevated everything with her skill and sensitivity. Stephanie so elegantly heightened all of the emotions we were trying to build, in moments both funny and sad.”
“Stephanie was great. She brought a fresh pair of eyes and ears to the project. She was keen to understand my vision but also brought her own ideas, Stephanie was calm, diligent and full of creative flair. I found her to be a key creative collaborator and a pleasure to work with. She always went above and beyond to do what was best for the films.”
“We’ve worked together for many years. She’s fiercely talented, original and responsive. More than anything else, her work is extraordinary - her composition always brings something of herself, her work has an individuality and character that I’ve rarely encountered in over twenty years working in the industry.”
