Growing Up Gayby on ABC2 9:30 Wednesday 20th November

Watch this brilliant and thought provoking documentary directed by Maya Newell and  produced by Charlotte McLellan this Wednesday November 20th 2013. 9:30PM. ABC2.

Jonathan Dower and I co-composed the music for this documentary. We had a great time crafting every sound in the documentary by hand….no virtual instruments to be found in the score here!


COMING SOON….The Eggsperts


Jonathan Dower and I are busy creating the songs and score for the Flying Bark Production of Eggsperts. Produced by RE Productions Pty Limited and developed with the assistance of Screen NSW, the 11 x 7 minute series is based on the highly successful e-learning website, Reading Eggs, and will be a stimulating and educational production for four to seven year olds, available for download via Android and Apple mobile devices as well as to Reading Eggs subscribers. It’s an EGGCELLENT adventure full of fun and discovery!


Here’s one for the APRA members and SCU students in Lismore


I will be in Lismore next Thursday the 8th of August 2013, at Southern Cross University taking a workshop on Screen Composition. Its open to all SCU students and APRA members in the area.  I will take you through the highs and lows of writing music for the screen, and show you a few tips on writing that great score. Hope to see you there!

Check out two great films at Melbourne International Film Festival this year. THE ROCKET, an extraordinary narrative feature set in LAOS, directed by Kim Mordaunt,  which has already swept up numerous awards at festivals all over the world……and PHOTOCOPIER, directed by Louise Alston, a tragic comic short film, which you just gotta see! On both films I composed the score.
