Sonya: “And was brilliant”.

Paul: “Fantastic. Artistic”.

Sonya: “Stood out for more than just for its soundtrack. But the soundtrack was absolutely stunning.”

Paul: “And hard work went into that. We definitely appreciate that.”

At the 6 minute mark you can see “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” win the award for Best Soundtrack.

Sonya: “Our next category is the Best Soundtrack. And I think that’s quite obvious.”

Paul: “Ja, there were some very good soundtracks. And not just music but also sound design.”

Sonya: “Ja.”

Paul: “But the one that stood out, head and shoulders, was “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre”.

Sonya” “Yes. Brilliant. Really enjoyed that one.”
