Don McGlashan

Don McGlashan showed his screen talents early on a trio of shorts (including the classic Walkshort) made with Harry Sinclair, his partner in multi-media group The Front Lawn. Since then he has composed music for TV, shorts, and many features. His score for Jane Campion's An Angel at My Table won acclaim. 2006 saw awards for No. 2, hit song 'Bathe in the River', and later a nomination for Dean Spanley's orchestral score.

It was very satisfying...Someone was saying to me the other night, “Wouldn’t it be cool to do a big score somewhere else, like LA.” I might be naive but, honestly, I could say “No, it was more fun doing it here.”
