Tandis is a composer whose breakthrough came with 2013’s Martin Luther King: The March on Washington, which received a BAFTA nomination at the Television Awards in 2014. He is working on a new documentary series with renowned producer Simon Chinn.
As part of his mentoring programme met his lifelong idol Italian composer Ennio Morricone, an experience he says was “one of the most exhilarating and significant moments in my life.”
Breakthrough Brits provides a source of publicity within the industry that you just can’t generate yourself. Self- promotion and self-marketing are all well and good, but to get the backing of BAFTA is amazing. I’d like to work with a wider range of people... but even if I get only one new collaborator from this, it will be wonderful.
