Nicholas Hooper is one of Europe’s leading composers, having written and produced music for over 250 films, dramas, and documentaries since 1990. He has developed a reputation for producing music that is original, inspiring, and always colorful.

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 received many other accolades for his feature films including the 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”).

Hooper scored Philip Martin’s feature, Einstein and Eddington, starring David Tennant as Sir Arthur Eddington and Andy Serkis as Albert Einstein for Company Pictures/HBO, and Belonging for BBC Wales Drama. He also scored Enid Blyton for Carnival/BBC, Mo Mowlam for C4, and Yes Virginia, a CBS animated film for Christmas 2009.
