Rafael May

Rafael is a renowned Australian composer joining Manners McDade after the success of two feature films at this year’s Toronto Film Festival: I Am Woman (World premiere, Opening Night Special Presentations) and Hearts and Bones (Internationally Premiere, Discovery Programme).

 

Hearts and Bones is the heartfelt story of an unlikely friendship between a war photographer and a refugee severely tested by mutual pain and loss. Rafael created a poetic score of pulsating high-strung guitar oscillations and elegant electric violin and cello, He was also the producer for the refugee choir featured in the film.

 

I Am Woman is the story of Helen Reddy, one of the biggest superstars of her time, and an icon of the 1970’s feminist movement, whose famous song galvanised a generation of women to fight for change. Rafael’s deep string score moved audiences to tears with its focus on the fraught relationship between Reddy and her husband and notorious manager Jeff Wald, and Helen’s growing strength through self-belief.

 

True crime and the paranormal collide in the documentary feature Ghosthunter (AACTA 2018 Nominee for Best Music for a Documentary and APRA AGSC Screen Music Award Nominee for Best Soundtrack Album). The film won the Sydney Film Festival’s Australian Documentary Prize. The films’ spin-off podcast is a Rolling Stone Halloween Top Five.

 

Rafael’s previous scores include the TV series Australia In Colour and the documentary features, Vitamania and Life After the Oasis. Rafael worked with the James Cameron Organisation for their exhibition Challenging the Deep, and the Australian War Memorial for their Afghanistan exhibition and TV special.

Rafael has twice won Best Soundtrack Album at the APRA AGSC Screen Music Awards and is a triple winner of the London International Ad Award (LIA) for his commercial work.
