About

Kingsley Marshall is a Senior Lecturer and Head of Film within the School of Film & Television at Falmouth University in the UK, a department which includes undergraduate degrees in BA Film, BA Television and a postgraduate programme, MA Film & Television. For over twenty years, he has also worked as an entertainment journalist contributing film, video game and music criticism, features, interviews and reviews for magazines worldwide, including Clash and Little White Lies magazines in the UK, Sabotage Times online & Magnetic overseas. His academic research primarily orientates around the use of sound (including music and effects) in film and television, and the cinematic representation of the real, including historical figures and events with a specialism in the US presidency. A PhD research project with the University of East Anglia, entitled The Unification of Film Sound, interrogates the use of sound and subjectivity in representations of the Iraq War – including film, television and video games. The project is structured around close study informed by a series of interviews with leading film practitioners, including the multiple Academy Award winners behind The Hurt Locker – director Kathryn Bigelow, screenwriter Mark Boal, sound designer Paul Ottosson and editor Chris Innis. Other interviewees for the project include director Paul Greengrass, the cinematographers Barry Ackroyd, Peter Suschitzky and James Whitaker, sound designers Walter Murch and Ben Burtt, composers John Powell, Marco Beltrami, Buck Sanders, David Shire, Marvin Hamlisch, Lee Ranaldo, Jon Cameron, Craig Armstrong and Lalo Schifrin, in addition to a number of editors, sound recordists, directors and producers. The first part of this project was published as part of Kathryn Bigelow: Interviews, through the University of Mississippi Press. He has presented papers on the representation of US presidents in cinema at Oxford University, Rider University and as an invited speaker at the University of London, and contributed to Presidents In The Movies: American History and Politics on Screen, published by Palgrave Macmillan as part of their Evolving Presidency series. ‘The Cinematic Watergate: From All the President’s Men to Frost/Nixon’ was included in Watergate Remembered, a book which considered the legacy of the scandal that engulfed the US presidency. Publication coincided with the 40th anniversary of Watergate, again on Palgrave Macmillan. More recently, in collaboration with Rupert Loydell, Kingsley has focused on the production techniques employed by Brian Eno. Having presented papers at the Modular Forms conference at Roehampton University and at the Music & Moving Image conference in New York, this work was published in the Journal of Visual Arts Practice in 2016. A second work centred around collaboration, chance and the Oblique Strategies was published by Bloomsbury in 2016 within Brian Eno: Oblique Music, edited by Sean Albiez and David Pattie.
