Yep, that’s right! My animation, Eli, has been selected for screening at London’s Underwire Festival this weekend – Saturday 21st to be exact – and my score is up for the Best Composer award (with props to producer/arranger Heathcliff Blair who made it sound so nice and shiny). A pretty amazing result, really, considering this was my first official animation, my first score and my first festival selection, so to say I’m hugely pleased is an understatement indeed. Since it was founded in 2010, Underwire has been growing year on year, celebrating the contribution of women to film both in front and behind the camera. Eli’s screening on Saturday is part of the Aural Pleasures section, from 5-7pm, which includes both music composition and sound design. After the screening I’m also doing a Q&A session, so if you’re in the London area why not come over to the Attic at the Hackney Picturehouse and join us? Tickets are available here.
