Sundance 2020 Composer Spotlight: Benjamin Woodgates
Film: Dream Horse
Benjamin Woodgates is one of the UK’s most sought after young composers. An alumnus of Oxford University and the Royal College of Music, his strong sense of musicality, broad stylistic reach and sensitivity towards picture is evident in his scores for film, installation, video games and high profile advertising campaigns.
He has also worked extensively as an orchestrator and arranger for film and television, recent credits including Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Victoria and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Benjamin also writes and arranges music for the live arena, recently adapting Jonny Greenwood’s Oscar-nominated Phantom Thread score for live performance at the film’s European premiere in London and arranging music for The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Dream Horse is Benjamin’s debut feature film score and was recorded in London with the London Contemporary Orchestra.
