Gary Tarn is a filmmaker and composer, born in London, England. A keen traveller, he became captivated by the music of Indonesia, Africa and India, and studied these, alongside the work of European orchestral composers. A passion for film led to a career as a media composer, and it was a natural progression to consider shooting and editing images of his own. In 2000, using a classic 1970’s 16mm film camera, he started to shoot his debut essay feature Black Sun, travelling in the USA, Iceland and India. Based on interviews with the blind author Hugues de Montalembert, the film was released in 2005, won a number of international awards, and was nominated for a film BAFTA. His second film The Prophet, based on the book by Kahlil Gibran, with narration by British actress Thandie Newton, was released in 2012.
