Simon's latest project Free Jimmy is an animated road movie written by Simon Pegg, voices include Woody Harrelson, Jim Broadbent and Samantha Morton. It made its festival debut in competition at Cannes in 2006. Boswell brings to each new project an energy and distinctiveness that stems from his unconventional background and his own admission that he lives in a 'musical vacuum'. Based in London, his film work stretches back to 1985 and his roots in Italian horror with Dario Argento. Since then he has worked with many of the world's most ambitious directors including Danny Boyle, Michael Hoffman, Clive Barker and Alejandro Jodorowsky.

No stranger to live performance as well as the recording studio, he loves to combine electronic and orchestral players. His record productions from the 1980s have influenced many contemporary musicians, notably the sample from his production of the band 23 Skidoo's Coup which became The Chemical Brothers' Block Rockin' Beats. Recent years have seen him collaborate with and produce many high profile artists for his film projects: Elton John, Dolly Parton and Marianne Faithfull, and work with musicians from bands including Blur, Orbital, The Sex Pistols and Echo And The Bunnymen.
