I was asked to send a showreel/Demo reel to a major festival.
Here is the latest of my Demo/Show reels as a Composer. This time it is a more selected few projects that are highlighted. It is the last couple of years of work and to be honest the tip of an Iceberg.
I would like to send my thanks to my friend Joel Forssell who edited the reel.
It’s now announced that I won the Gold Award for “Best Original Score” at Queen Palm Film Festival (first quarter 2020) and will compete agains other Winners on the Annual event in 2020. I am of course grateful and happy.

Once it was titled “Viking Saga: Rune of the Dead” but closing in on the release the film have a new title. The official title will be “The Huntress – Rune of the Dead”.
An North American trailer, with focus on the more scary parts of the film, has been edited with some (mostly in the begining) of my score. The Score is completed and it ended up being over 80 minutes of Music! I am both the Composer and one of the Producers of the film that will have a US in the fall.
