APRA Screen Music AWARD (2014)

Mako Mermaids is the smash hit children’s television series that has screened in over 160 territories worldwide!

From the ZDF Website:

“Mako Mermaids is the new children’s series spin-off of the smash hit H2O – Just Add Water, which is enjoyed by an audience of tens of millions in over 160 territories.
Real-life mermaids Sirena, Nixie and Lyla are part of a mermaid pod that lives in the waters off Mako Island. As young members of the pod it is their job to protect their magical Mako Island from trespassers. But on the night of a full moon, the mischievous mermaids neglect their duties. 16-year old land-dweller, Zac, enters the Moon Pool and forms a special connection with Mako – he is granted a fish-like tail and amazing powers. Threatened by his merman powers, the pod are forced to leave the island, but they banish Sirena, Nixie and Lyla. The young mermaids know that to be able to rejoin their pod they must get legs, venture onto land, and take back Zac’s powers” or risk being outcasts forever.”

Mako Mermaids is available to stream on Netflix and screens on Network Ten as Mako: Island of Secrets. Co-composed by Ricky Edwards, I was on board full time from Episode 9 but I also co-composed Ep5. Thanks for having me on board Ricky!
