Jennifer Thomas, LDS musician and composer, is on FIRE! She recently won Park City Film Festival’s Gold Medal of Excellence for Original Music in a Short Film for her work in Minuet. There were over 200 films selected for review this year, and it was Jennifer’s first film score.
Before the excitement of winning had even slightly worn off, she received a Hollywood Music in Media Awards nomination for her classical crossover arrangement of J. S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor. There is a version of it here, and it is also being re-mastered for Jennifer’s new album. The HMM Awards honor film scores, commercial music composers, video game composers, and independent musicians in every musical genre. It is the only awards platform of its kind, and it will be the real deal: red carpet, media coverage, and after-parties. Jennifer humbly says that even if she doesn’t win, it will be a great experience to meet others in her field.
With all of the projects she has going on, she still found the time to let me interview her. I was thrilled.
