DOLCE wins Gold at Kinsale

We’re excited to announce that we’ve won GOLD for Best Original Music at the 2021 Kinsale Shark Awards in the Short Film category. We were awarded the top prize for our composition work on ‘The Shimmering Extraordinary: Annie’, one of two films we completed for the inaugural Safe To Be Me Festival by Scottish Ballet this year.

The short, which was directed by FX Goby and produced by Nexus Studios, and which premiered via NOWNESS in May 2021, follows dance artist Annie Edwards, who suffers from a physical disability called cartilage hair hypoplasia. We crafted an elegant piano piece fused with strings and rousing vocals for the film, which finds Edwards performing as she describes the sense of liberation she achieves through dancing, despite how it exacerbates the physical pain she lives with on a day-to-day basis.

We’d like to say a big thanks to the amazing team involved with this project, and to the Kinsale Sharks for the award!
