Mark Hinton Stewart – Composer Profile

Mark Hinton Stewart is a British film composer whose music moves seamlessly from a refined classicism to a more contemporary feel. He has recently re-ignited his passion for writing classical works; full details are available on request.

Mark composed the title music for Waterloo Road with Shed Productions for the BBC, and created a compelling score for Magnolia for Red Productions. He scored the US film feature The Man From Earth with Richard Schenkman, as well as a special two-parter of the BBC’s Casualty. He scored Holby Blue Series II, the latest creation from Tony Jordan for BBC1 made by Red Planet / Kudos, having also scored series 1, and then went onto score The Chase series 2, for Rollem Productions. He also scored the 6-part comedy series for the BBC, Parents Of The Band, created by Jimmy Nail and Tarquin Gotch. Mark most recently scored Crash, for Red Planet Pictures.

Originally a classically trained pianist and organist, he has worked with some of the biggest names in the film/pop scene, from Sir George Martin to Jools Holland and Adam F. Mark assisted on the Music Supervision of both, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and The Real Howard Spitz, and has scored a number of films including Tube Tales (the Sky Pictures movie with Ewan McGregor, Denise van Outen, Rachel Weisz, Jason Flemyng and Bob Hoskins), The Truth Game for Screen Production Associates, the feature Dog Eat Dog for Film Four/Tiger Aspect Pictures and Baby Juice Express for The Spice Factory starring Nick Moran. Mark scored the incredibly successful series Cutting It, and the 8 part series 55 Degrees North for Zenith Entertainment/BBC.
