Nylon Studios composer Michael Yezerski recognized at the Oscars

Sunday night’s Oscars show delivered the prestigious award to “The Lost Thing� in the best animated short film category.

Nylon Studios’ composer Michael Yezerski wrote the music for the amazing 15-minute animated short that tells the story of a boy who finds an unusual creature on a beach and tries to find a home for it. The film was developed from the book of the same name by award-winning Australian author/illustrator Shaun Tan. It was directed by Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann and produced by Sophie Byrne.

Michael comments, “The music of the film needed to tell an emotional story, but also evoke the strange world of the ‘Lost Thing.’ In collaboration with Shaun and Andrew, I developed a non-traditional musical landscape for the score that would be both heartwarming and yet somehow a little unfamiliar, which reflects the themes of the film.�

In November, Michael won an Australian Screen Music Award for his work on the film. The film previously won top prize at the prestigious Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
