Imogen Heap

In 2014 we shot a movie with musician Imogen Heap which went on to be our most popular video ever. So it's no surprise she's made it into our Hot List.

The movie was about her Mi.Mu electronic gloves, designed to allow people to interact with their computer remotely via hand gestures.

In the video she demonstrated how she uses the gloves to compose and play music during her live performances. The video went on to scoop a Webby award and got over 3 million views on Facebook.

Heap has since been developing the gloves to offer a wider audience more accessible ways of making music.
