Austin Wintory wins at Hollywood Music Awards

Austin Wintory won the Best New Composer at the Hollywood Music Awards last night for his powerful score to Captain Abu Raed. I hope this is the beginning of a series of recognitions for Austin's rich orchestral music for the film. This is our 19th award for the film as a team. Here's to the Academy and the Golden Globe. Captain Abu Raed was my second collaboration with Austin. The first was my AFI thesis film, Morning Latte, for which he won the Film Music Award for Best Score for a Student Film.

You can listen to a bunch of his varied scores at his site
