Award-Winning Production of Documentary Films

Award-winning production of documentary films

We make films for the discerning viewer that are challenging, engaging, and engrossing. Our work is available to buy in beautifully-produced multi-disc boxed sets.

Fugue State Films is run by film-maker Will Fraser. Founded in 2007, for ten years it was a partnership between Will and Simon Still, during which time we established ourselves as one of the leading makers of films about music such as The Genius of Cavaillé-Coll and Maximum Reger.

Our films garnered excellent reviews, our

favourite being: “You should buy this set. Mortgage your house, sell your relatives into slavery, but get it!” (Musicweb International). We have  won best DVD in the BBC Music Magazine Awards twice, the Deutschen Schallplattenkritikpreis three times, and we even made the six o’clock news in New Zealand.

Our goal is to make films of the highest quality about the best classical music, films that both summarise present attitudes while seeking new views and pushing new opinions.

For instance Maximum Reger successfully reappraised the great romantic modernist composer.

Central to this goal is the creation of an ongoing set of wonderful films to promote the organ and the beautiful music of its repertoire, the intricate details and magnificent totality of the instrument itself, and the work of the celebrated artists who play it.
