Hi all, hope you had a Merry Christmas, and am ready to greet the coming year.

Now when done with USC, it’s time to pull up the sleeves, and do some serious work!

It should be no secret that I now am extremely proud of having this accomplishment hanging on my wall.

My summer was filled up with a great deal of projects before I began to get some more steady work, working for composer Christopher Young. In the mean time, I was able to collaborate with new as old friends on projects, such as the documentary movie “In God We Trust” by Rikke Louise Schjødt, which currently are studying to become a director at The New York University, Tish School of the Arts. We have before been working on her Danish award winning short movie “At Give Slip/To Let Go”, so it was with great joy, to collaborate with her agin. -I did also wrap up the score for the Sci-fi short “RAE” directed by Aaron Rovner which is a former USC student. We ended up recording the score with a string section, and blended it with some nice ambient electro elements. It should be in mix now, so hopefully it’ll be out very soon – I was also contacted by Danish director Søren Grau about doing the score for 2 of his movies, which is a part of a short film trilogy with the theme “Death”. The lovely posters can be seen below, “Inferno” and “Paradise”. Søren and I are currently working on his next movie!

I am also very excited to mention that the lead actress Sarah-Sofie Boussnina from the short movie “In Absentia” directed by David Metz, which I worked on as a composer, won the “Ekko Shortlist Award” for best lead actress. Ecco Shortlist the only interactive portal for Danish short movies, which each year award talents for their contributions. The movie itself was nominated in 3 categories, and I think there was no doubt that Sarah deserved this award! Good work –

Talking about Ekko shortlist, then I have just been mentioned to me, that the danish short movie “By The End of the Pier/For ended af molen”, have just entered the list. It’s directed by the Danish director Kasper Møller, which I previous worked together with, on his award winning debut short, “The Green Dog/Den grønne hund”.

Currently I am an assistant for composer Christopher Young (Spiderman 3, Drag Me To Hell, Hellraiser) and recently got upgraded as his teaching assistant when teaching USC classes. I’ve always been teaching music, so when proposed to do this, I was of cause very excited to get started. – As I have mentioned before, I kinda grew up with Chris’ music, so it’s a true joy, to be able to work for the man himself! His score for Hellraiser is definitely still one of my all time favorite!

It have also been a time to enjoy many concerts, meet the giants. If it was not for them, I would not have been here!

As Bruce said, this better get up on Facebook! Yes, perfect facebook moment! -In the middle of two giants, composer John Debney (Sin City, Iron Man 2, Spy Kids) and a very special guy which made me so much more of a confident orchestrator, the one and only, composer/USC teacher Bruce Broughton (Silverado, Tombstone).

Meeting Alexandre Desplat (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Girl with a Pearl Earring) together with composer friends

Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, a yearly tradition? Yes please!

Danny Elfman live with an orchestra, performing his songs from “Nightmare Before Christmas”. -Just mind-blowing!

Taking a break from a furious deadline just a couple of weeks ago, showing a friend from the Danish Film School around at USC – Back to deadline, orchestrating music to be recorded with 60 piece orchestra! That’s actually a really good way to end the year –

See you all in the coming year –
