BUT MILK IS IMPORTANT
This wonderful short film has been screened at 100+ festivals, has won over 20 international awards world wide and was a Vimeo Staff Pick. It’s based upon a man with social anxiety being followed by a naive clumsy creature that is trying to force him into beneficial social situations. Using the piano as the focal point of the film’s score, I surrounded it with elements of backmasking and moments of surreal synthetic suspense to capture the anxious realm our main protagonist finds himself in.
Released in 2018 this beautifully animated film has been selected for Twenty festivals across the world and has won four awards so far. It’s based around impulses we all can feel but never act upon, exploring what would happen if our buried instincts come back to claim their place. Glimpses of emotional anarchy and moments of lost self-control. For this film, Anna needed something to juxtapose the emotional anarchy, so I composed a piano piece that served as bedding beneath the almost child-like melody written to be sung by an ethereal angelic voice.
THREE'S A CROWD
An award winning drama based around a single man living next-door to an abusive relationship and his decicions on how to intervene. This was a great projct to work on – after seeing my previous work, Trevor entrusted me to place music where I saw fit, building suspense filled motifs and mixing them with elements of horror. At this point in my journey I could stretch the music a little further and experiment in ways I hadn’t previously, thanks to Trev.
THE SUN BINGO
Trevor was approached by The Sun to animate adverts promoting an online bingo game. Here I had the oppotunity to create music based around a more pop-folk feel using acoustic guitars, percussion, piano and vocals.
A fanastic surreal comedy about a father, his triplets and a hot doctor from the director of Skwigly Online Animation Magazine.
