Choi's association with director M. Night Shyamalan led to collaborations on their first two features, PRAYING WITH ANGER and WIDE AWAKE. After completing WIDE AWAKE, the composer signed a multi-picture deal to write music for Miramax Films including the score to DOWN TO YOU.
Working with Jane Kennedy, Rob Sitch and WORKING DOG PRODUCTIONS, he has had the honor of scoring two of Australia’s most beloved films, THE CASTLE and THE DISH, as well as the critically acclaimed TV series THE HOLLOWMEN.
The composer has also written and conducted commercial music for SONY, Computer Associates and General Mills. He has recently completed the score to THE RED ROBIN, starring Judd Hirsch, Ryan O’Nan, Caroline Lagerfelt, Jaime Ray Newman and C.S. Lee.
"My main goal is to compose music to serve the needs of the film. Through this, I share my soul with the world."
