“Geitekillingen” music wins Crystal Pine Award at ISFMF 2016!
I’m honored and excited to announce that my music for the animated TV adaption of the Norwegian children’s tale Geitekillingen som kunne telle til ti has won the Crystal Pine Award in the category of Best Original Score in a Short Film at this year’s International Sound & Film Music Festival in Rovinj, Croatia! The festival, which took place in October, was headlined by industry luminaries such as three-time Oscar® winner Michael Minkler, Oscar® winner and film audio legend Randy Thom, and jazz and film musician Kyle Eastwood. I’m immensely grateful to the jury and the organizers of the festival for the recognition, and to Geitekillingen director Hans Jørgen Sandnes and his team for trusting me with the musical side of their brainchild.
The second half of this year saw even more good news for the little goat, with my music getting a nomination in the category of Best Score in a Short Film at this year’s installment of the Fimucité film music festival in Tenerife, Spain. The festival took place in September 2016 and featured a combination of stunning film music concerts and masterclasses with film music veterans like Howard Shore, Óscar Navarro, and Richard Bellis.
