Pink Floyd has announced the death at the age 73 of Ian Emes, one of the exponents of experimental techniques in British cinema and known for his work with the group.

In his career he won three BAFTA Awards (1994, 2009, 2011), a Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival (1979), a British Animation Award (2014) and was nominated for an Emmy Award (2017) and an Academy Award (1984).

Rest in peace.

Ian Emes, British film director, animator, artist, writer and pioneer of experimental film techniques, famous for his work with Pink Floyd, has died.

Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Ian's eye-catching animated film French Windows (set to Pink Floyd's One Of These Days) from 1972 came to the attention of Richard Wright, and his unforgettable animation for other Floyd songs such as the spinning clock faces of Time, and the heartbeat of Speak To Me, were mainstays of the band's concerts for many years.

In more recent years he also created an absorbing 55 minute film for Pink Floyd's The Endless River.
