A Northbrook graduate has written the music for an animated film which has just been awarded a BAFTA.
Terence Dunn, who gained a first class degree in Music Composition for Film & Media, scored the music for ‘Edmond’, which won Best British Short Animation, at the star studded award ceremony.
He also scored the music for two other BAFTA nominations - 'Manoman' and film-maker Sean McAllister's documentary 'A Syrian Love Story'.
After the ceremony, Terence had the honour of attending American film producer Harvey Weinstein's famed after-party with the likes of best actor winner Leonardo DiCaprio and Benicio Del Torro.
Terence said, “Edmond was a dream job. On the request of Nina Gantz the director, I was tasked to find a nostalgic and timeless sound using some choice instruments including Hammond Organ. I wrote a kid’s song to be sung as part of a school play scene and we went to Lancaster to record a group of boys at the Trumacar Primary school. We recorded it in 5.1 which added a lovely authenticity to the school hall space.
The project was highly rewarding and I worked extremely close with the sound designer which I think can be heard in the final film.”
Edmond tells the story of a man with cannibalistic tendencies who wants to be close to his loved ones. Director Nina Gantz has described it as ‘a story of all-consuming love, told with handmade felt puppets and 2D drawn animation’.
