Pelicans has wrapped

November 30, 2010

pelicans outback nomadsWith director Susan McMillan and editor Mark Fox in Britain, the producer Tina Dalton in Sydney, the sound designer Michael Gissing in Tassie and me in Melbourne we finally got there! It’s a great score too this one. A mixture of grand orchestral and intimate moments reflective of our dramatic landscape and the small peaceful moments in our pelican’s journey. Have a listen

Looks like we might be getting a few extra sales too, perhaps into France and the US.
