Nicholas Hooper is one of the leading media composers in the UK. He has written and produced music for over 250 films, dramas and documentaries since 1988 and has developed a reputation for producing music that is original, inspiring, and colourful.
His scores have received several major accolades. In 2004 he won the BAFTA for Best Original Score for The Young Visiters, being also nominated for State of Play. Nick was recently nominated for a 2006 Bafta for his score to "The GIrl In The Cafe". Prior to this he was also BAFTA nominated for The Way We Live Now. In 1998 he won the coveted Golden Panda Award for Land of the Tiger, a major BBC documentary series on India. The following year he won again (having been nominated for three separate scores), making him the first composer to win the award consecutively.
He has also received many accolades for his feature films including the recent period feature The Heart Of Me, starring Helena Bonham Carter and Olivia Williams, and The Tichbourne Claimant (a quote from Variety: “Nicholas Hooper’s alert symphonic score rates a major bow, adding shape and atmosphere to the labyrinthine tale”). We are thrilled to announce that he has recently been appointed by Warner Bros to score the next Harry Potter feature, The Order of the Phoenix.
