Notable among these are  “The Thin Red Line” (Feature 1997) “Holy Smoke” (Feature 1998) “Farscape” (TV Series 1999)  “Happy Feet” (Feature 2005) “Blood Diamond” (Feature 2006) and “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole” (Feature 2010). 

I was head of department and sole Editor for “Animalia” from 2006-2008. This was a 40 x 24min Animated TV Series which was a CBC / CBBC / Porchlight Entertainment US and Burberry co-production which enjoyed distribution in North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and India. I led a team of four assistants over an 18 month production and provided specialised training for my department in Animation and post-production methodologies. Animalia was the winner of the Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Award in 2009 for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for our composer, Chris Elves."
