Austin Wintory

began his obsession with film scoring back when he was ten years old, when he discovered Jerry Goldsmith’s scores to PATTON and A PATCH OF BLUE. Now, his obsession having mutated into a career of his own, his scores can be heard in more than 200 productions, including over twenty five feature films three of which have been released theatrically in the US and Europe. Most noteworthy among them was CAPTAIN ABU RAED, the world’s first Jordanian film, which won the Audience Award at Sundance; Austin’s score was shortlisted as a contender for the 2009 Academy Awards for ‘Best Original Score,’ and also won him a Hollywood Music Award for ‘Best New Composer.’ More recently was 2009’s Sundance hit GRACE. His score was a nominee at the 2010 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards for ‘Best Original Score’ and was named among the top ten scores for 2009 by Visions in Sound. Austin has also scored a handful of video games, including the widely acclaimed Playstation-3 game FLOW, for which Austin received a British Academy Award nomination. In summer 2009, Hollywood Reporter listed Austin as one of 15 composers “Primed to take their place on the A-list.”
