Patrick has enjoyed huge worldwide box office success with Working Title's children's smash Nanny Mcphee (starring Emma Thompson), Eragon (starring John Malkovich) and the universally popular franchise Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Directed by Mike Newell.)
In 2008 Patrick completed the worldwide hit Nim's Island (directed by Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett) and the animated feature Igor (directed by Tony Leondis). Patrick is currently working on a series of albums. Two for solo piano and one for string quartet.
The song has already been recorded at Metropolis Studios in London and mixed by Mick Guzauski in New York and Dame Shirley is thrilled with the outcome. When asked how the producers persuaded her to join the project, Dame Shirley said: "There was no persuading needed here, I liked the song from the moment I heard it. Sascha and Tessa made the process incredibly fun and easy for me and we got a great result".
Sir Sean Connery is an Executive Producer and has been heavily involved with the independent studio project since its inception. He said: "It's marvellous to have Dame Shirley back in the same show, after all these years since Goldfinger! It goes without saying that her rendition of Goldfinger set up the entire mood for the film - she's done just the same here! It's a tremendous plus to have someone of her stature join the project and with a great song and her incredible performance, she will simply launch our story, which is fantastic!" Producers are working on a soundtrack album at the moment with 4 other original songs from the film and of course the music by Patrick Doyle who is composing the underscore.
