Finally! 3 Years, 21 international awards and 100+ festivals later, ‘But Milk Is Important’ (a short film I had so much fun doing all of the music for) has been released by two of my favourite people (and film’s creators) Eirik Grønmo Bjørnsen and Anna Mantzaris on Vimeo and is already a “Vimeo Staff Pick” on the front page of the website!

One of Vimeo’s “Staff Picks” that’s currently on it’s home page is an awesome video I created the music and sound effects for! Amazingly animated by Jöns Mellgren and Anna Mantzaris, the video was produced by American online magazine Matter.  Check out it’s accompanying article at www.medium.com/matter


Phil Brookes Composer Showreel

My new composer showreel includes footage from the most recent films and ad campaigns I’ve composed for, including international multi award winning animation But Milk Is Important, International award winning film Three’s A Crowd and the short series by Amphi Produktion for the awesome equality awareness of Crossing Boarders!

Crossing Boarders: Amphi Produktion

Here’s some of the music I created for an amazing series of films animated by Anna Mantzaris and Eirik Grønmo Bjørnsen with Amphi Produktion.  The videos were made in Sweden for the amazing organization Crossing Boarders, who work towards humanism, gender equality and anti racism in the workplace, schools and society in general.

Trevor Hardy Showreel

A week after But Milk Is Important played at Annecy Film Festival, I’m super excited to start work on my next film “Three’s A Crowd”.  It’s being animated, directed, written and produced by the amazingly talented artist Trevor Hardy for his company FoolHardy Films.

Trevor is a British animator who’s free-lanced internationally for television (Nickelodeon), advertising (Blu-Tack, Wallace and Gromit) and film (Pushkin, Dead Bird) after studying and working with the world-renowned company Aardman Animations (Wallace and Gromit, Flushed Away).

 I’m so chuffed to be working with such a champ, on such an amazing story, that I’ve started writing music having only seen the script and these images. image
