Sundance 2021 Composer Spotlight: Craig Sutherland

Craig Sutherland 

Film: This Is the Way We Rise

Craig Sutherland was born in Scotland and raised in the small village of Kincardine in the 1980s. His mother presented him with his first cassette tape and walkman when he was just two years old. Sutherland believes this was the spark that set his love for sound ablaze. This love of sound, coupled with his fascination of the moving image has led him to become a film composer and sound designer; and one with a unique sonic sensibility. 2015 saw Craig relocating from Scotland to New York City to design sound for The Light Between Oceans (DreamWorks) directed by Derek Cianfrance. Craig, now living in Scotland, continues to work with filmmakers all over, and is a regular theme tune composer for BBC Scotland.
