One of our successful collabs was when we put Tessa Rose Jackson and Darius Timmer ‘in the spotlight’ at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2020, together with some other Dutch composers. The animator-filmmaker Lei Lei came into contact with Tessa and Darius and that’s how they started working together. They produced the animated film Silver Bird and Rainbow Fish as a result. The American Variety has written an article about this, with the quote: “Serving as both sound designers and composers, Tessa Rose Jackson and Darius Timmer have created a superb soundscape that captures the feelings of disorientation and insecurity experienced by members of the Lei family.”
In 2022 Silver Bird and Rainbow Fish was nominated at the Rotterdam International Film Festival for the Tiger Award. It was one of the eight nominations the animated movie received in 2022.
