Bigband in film is a project by The Loop Jazz Orchestra which was set up by Jan Hasenöhrl along with Lukáš Chejn, Vít Pospíšil and others. Its artistic director is the pianist, arranger, composer and conductor Vít Pospíšil who studied composition from the outstanding arranger and pianist Pavel Větrovec. While he predominantly plays jazz, Vít is also a trained flautist and occasionally returns to the instrument. Miles Davis already exerted an influence on him upon discovering jazz during his school years while Jiří Stivín has also been a great role model.
