Service Description

I have experience in Composing for wildlife documentaries, most of which are for Animal Planet, Discovery or Nat Geo Wild. Films I have worked on are:

Squid Vs. Whale (Nat Geo),
Shoreline (Multichoice, SABC),
The Last Lion of Liuwa (Nat Geo),
Escaping the Great White (Nat Geo)
The Journey (Fifa Films)
Solo: A Wild Dog's Tale
Boteti (Animal Planet)
One Last Look (Feature Film)
Underwater Okavango (Animal Planet)

All of these films were written in close consultation with the filmmakers and changes were made right until the final mix down.
Although I feel able to provide any style of music required, I am passionate about South African styled music and putting my own sound into it.
