Mr. Lockjaw Prequel Episode Wins Music Award

For the past two years Mr. Lockjaw has been screened around the United States for several film and media festivals garnering awards such as Best Horror TV Pilot (2015 Haunted Horror Film Festival), 2016 Official Selection (Macabre Film Festival), and 2016 Official Selection (Gwinnett Center International Film Festival) among others.


The Mr. Lockjaw team has been hard at work on more episodes and content including a new prequel episode which debuted earlier this year in Atlanta. 

And with that I am honored to announce my score for that prequel episode has won an award for Individual Achievement in Music from the 2017 Southern Shorts Awards!


I'm looking forward to writing more music for this incredibly fun, and nerve-racking in the best way possible, series.
