Very proud to have been the composer on 3 of the 7 nominations for the 2014 Golden Reel Awards by the Motion Picture Sound Editors organisation out in LA, THE top Sound in film awards. Congrats to Tom Lock Griffiths “Miss Todd”, Filipe Paskiewicz “Anamnesis”and Nikola Medic “Sleeping with the Fishes” (who is having to miss the BAFTA awards ceremony to be in LA! I dunno know these awards ceremonies are like buses).
