'Shanti Khana' narrated by Ashley Judd and Royal Television Society award-winning short documentary 'Nial Adams'.

Tom and Daisy stumbled upon 'More Than Only' on Instagram with its beautifully shot stills and behind-the-scenes content. They immediately contacted writer-director Michelle Leigh to ask about the concept and discovered a coming-of-age story with genuinely heartwarming performances. Told from the perspective of a gay man, this was a dream job, not least due to hours of conversation with Michelle spent digging deep into the heart of the characters.

“More Than Only was our maiden voyage into feature film scoring and we couldn’t have asked for a more joyful experience working alongside such a heartfelt storyteller like Michelle.” Daisy and Tom, Two Twenty Two.
