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 feature films, such as 2009′s Sundance hit GRACE. He’s 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 2008,CAPTAIN ABU RAED, the world’s first Jordanian film, 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.’ In summer 2009, Hollywood Reporter listed Austin as one of 15 composers “Primed to take their place on the A-list.”
