I was lucky enough to be at the London showing of this DVD, and it truly is a wonder. There is so much crammed in and something for pretty much every fan.

As an Imogen Heap fan it would be easy to just say it was great just because it was about her, but that wouldn't help someone undecided on whether to get this and it would be unfair. I can honestly say that it's a great watch.

The film shows the stress, the experimentation, the humour and the love that went into making Imogen's latest album. It really does seem to capture the moments involved and you feel like you watch the album develop. Throughout the film you hear snippets of early versions of tracks and the further you get through the closer they come to the songs you know and love.

If you are an Imogen Heap fan this makes the perfect compliment to her latest album, you just don't realise what went into making every sound that appears on the album. It makes you see the 4 minutes each track plays out for, in a different light.

I truly hope you like this as much as I do - and I'm looking forward to getting my copy in the post :)

I watched this DVD the other night an found it to be a well made, insightful look into the music making process.
I would strongly suggest it to those interested in making music, not just Imogen Heap fans.
It shows Imogen to be a extremely talented musician, and also a top rate producer/engineer (they don't just give Grammys and Ivor Novello awards away to anyone !) and all-round nice person as well
Congratulations to the Director Justine Pearsall for a excellent job on what must have been a real labour of love to produce such a strong body of work. The film is superbly shot and edited to give a glimpse into the sheer hard work that goes into making a successful album
I strongly recommend you buy this DVD

After seeing Immi's DVD for the first time I felt so proud and honoured to be the owner of her album Ellipse. The amount of love and pain that went into her incredible CD is astounding!! The DVD fills you in on just about every single twist and turn that built up those thirteen songs and is DEFFINATELY worth a watch. It can be really emotional at times and through her interactions with the camera you really get to know Imogen herself along with her round house, her crazy car Abi and almost every tiny sound which makes up part of Ellipse. You'll never listen to her album in the same way again!!

...of someone who actually deserves it. Imogen Heap earns our devotion all over again with this entertaining, fascinating insight into her - oh no - "musical prOcess" (with a short "o" for full pretentious effect). No, never fear: the music does, indeed, come first with this immensely talented lady; as ever. But this intimate look into her creation of "Ellipse" is compelling beyond the music, as it's her lovely character that comes across in huge waves of affection, too. This is a great piece of communication in every way, a real lesson to all those "creative rites of passage" artists who trowel on the "suffering for mah music" portentousness without ever letting us know who they really are or giving us a sense that there's some real pleasure to be shared.

The film captures her high spirits and sheer generosity just as acutely as it does her driven, intense application to the music. If "driven" and "intense" make you wince like me, it's probably because of all those aforementioned agonised, inaccessibly dark studies to which we've become accustomed. Don't get me wrong, Immi works harder and deeper than many, most on the current scene: it's just that she has such natural charm as to make even our accompaniment of her through the late-night/early-morning creative marathons feel somehow warm and rewarding. The film does a fantastically empathetic job in generating an honest, absorbing involvement in her music and life and vice-versa as they're the same thing...

We've come to Imogen Heap in what we think is the right order (I don't mean Royal "we," that's me and my wife): music first.

I don't normally like "Making of" DVDs, which are more often than not extended promo videos or ego-trips for the artist. Imogen Heap ("Immi" to her friends and fans) is highly charismatic and is unusually open about her work and methods, and that makes this film about the making of Ellipse a lot more interesting than most. The film also goes some way to explain why it takes her three years to write and record an album of a dozen songs.

Heap's genre is sometimes thought of as an electro-pop, but that does her a big disservice. This is not tweepy soulless electronic music; it is music for human beings. Immi uses mainly organic sounds, but then manipulated and looped to make these sounds into music. We see nails, light-fittings, bannister rails, childrens' toys and many other unexpected objects being pressed into service as sound sources. We also see friends and family jumping up and down on an old wooden floor to make a percussion track for "Bad Body Double".

The film starts with a writing trip around the world. Despite the exotic locations, there's some idea of how lonely this part of preparing an album can be. What if the songs don't come? The next part of the film is about the building of a basement studio in Heap's home, the Roundhouse in Havering, which unsurprisingly takes longer than expected. Then there's the recording of the album, which is the longest part of this film. Through the recording process, we see a happy, rounded character gradually becoming an obsessive perfectionist hermit, who works long into the night and still misses deadlines because none of the twenty versions of one of the tracks aren't quite right. She makes substantial personal sacrifice for her work.
