One of the greatest careers you can be a part of in the music industry today is as a music composer for film, games and television. As a composer, you have the opportunity to work on fantastic projects, compose epic scores, and help to tell truly incredible stories.
Michael Drew is a multi award-winning Australian composer for film, television and games.
Michael began working professionally while still studying his Bachelor of Music through the University of Canberra; scoring two films from the Griffith University Film School (The Neon King and Meeting Mum) whilst also receiving successive Dean's Excellence Awards for his studies.
Michael has currently received two awards for his compositions, the first being 'Most Outstanding Music' from the Griffith Film School for his work on The Neon King, and the second being 'Best Composer of 2016' from the Australian Screen Industry Network for his work on another short film, Shiver. The Neon King has since premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and been shown internationally, and Shiver has just begun its festival circuit as well.
Following his early success in the film circuit, Michael began to explore scoring for games in order to join together his love for games with his musical talent. Since then, he has added several games to his composition repertoire.
Michael prides himself on bringing passion and enthusiasm to every project he works on. With an outstanding work ethic and an open mind, no concept is too complex for this talented young composer.
