Title says it all. If you’re a wildlife lover (and of course happen to live in the UK) Do tune in
Just posted several new pages for films I worked on late last year. The first is Tiger Dynasty, a natural history documentary commissioned for the prestigious Natural World wildlife series on BBC2. Also there is The Curse of Eleanor Crabtree, a VFX short in the vein of Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas, and finally Like it was Yesterday, a beautiful and moving film about a man facing his father’s slide into dementia. Plenty of music and pictures on each page so check them out.
Available from these and other online retailers worldwide, as well as from my own download store. I hope you enjoy the music!
Surviving Georgia is an intelligent, funny, moving and delightful romantic comedy starring some of Australia’s most loved actors from film and television including Pia Miranda, Holly Valance, Spencer McLaren and Caroline O’Connor with Shane Jacobson.
The score, which was written predominantly for strings, melodic percussion and piano, explores the themes of the film including loss and love, self discovery, resolution and happiness. I like to think it captures the romance and humour of the film and the performances herein. The score also includes the song All that you love co-composed with and sung by the wonderful Abi Tucker.

Well, I’d like to say the cameras went into overdrive last night as I strolled the red carpet, but despite my best efforts (and despite being cunningly dressed as Totti Goldsmith) there was a distinct lack of flashes (or flashers, although I considered that also as a means of making the papers)… Famous people are in this link. Less famous people (with apologies to Spencer Sandra and Kate who did make the society pages) are in the pics below.
Forgot to tell you guys I recently wrapped a fabulous short film called ‘Like It Was Yesterday’ about a man who is wrestling with his father’s slide into dementia. Very moving. Well I went to the film’s première at Cinema Nova on the weekend and it was very well received as was the score. It’s off on the festival circuit now so fingers crossed it does well for the film makers – Brett and Eliza D’Souza.
Our film has also been selected as a finalist for the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival which is wonderful news. Finger’s crossed.
I will often Google films that I work on to see how they are travelling. However there was nothing on Pelicans: Outback Nomads a while back. Now all of a sudden I see we have been broadcast on the Nature series on PBS in the States, the film is available to purchase on DVD and Blu-ray, and there are two clips on Youtube here and here. We even scored a positive Blu-ray review from DVD Verdict. Aah, the internet…
Update: I see we also had a brief review in the Wall Street Journal Online 🙂
