Last year I became a special prize winner (Oticons Faculty CD 2016 with composition “Despicable Me”) and one of the top 30 finalists among 222 participants from over the world of the Oticons Faculty International Film Music Competition. I was nominated for this prestigious award by Emmy Award Nominated Sir Dirk Brosse, Oscar Winner Stephen Warbeck and film composer Shigeru Umebayashi, known for scores for films, such as “House of Flying Daggers” or “2046”.
