- I have collaborated with New York based filmmaker Clare Conway for several music videos that have gone on to be featured in many international film festivals as well as winning international awards (see above in Major National & International Film Screenings & Awards). I am now currently working on a film we created in Kyoto, Japan, called Tacit. Conway serves as Videographer and Director and I am working as the Film Score Composer. This film will form part of my Doctoral work and we will use it as an example of our work when applying for grant opportunities for overseas projects to explore our intercultural curiosities when it comes to multimedia projects. Whilst in Japan, I also met with world renowned composer, Tomoyuki Hisatome, who provided me with priceless insights into the world of Japanese music and its delicate sensibilities.
