Sean Tinnion is a multi - award winning British-Australian music composer for films, television, games & other multimedia productions currently based in Australia. His compositional style and sound is a mixture between haunting, evocative, emotional scores & dark ambient soundscapes that extensively use orchestra and electronic elements. Over the span of his career, he has scored over 50 productions based in Australia and overseas, including the UK and the USA ranging from short films, features, games, corporate and commercials. His awards and accolades throughout his career so far include an impressive 19 winning awards for 'Best Film Score' from film festivals such as The Hollywood Boulevard Film Festival, Global Music Awards, The Vegas Movie Awards, The Europe Film Festival UK, The APRA Screen Music Awards, Australia, The International Sound & Film Music Festival in Croatia, The Los Angeles Film Awards and The International Independent Film Awards. He has also received a further 6 nominations for his work in film & TV.

2020 was a turning point in Sean's career, landing his first feature length film production 'The Last Horns of Africa'  which is a gripping and intimate look at the current rhino poaching war raging across Africa for which he has won 5 awards for Best Score. This then led to his second feature length documentary film 'Jaimen Hudson: From Sky to Sea' which tells the story of Jaimen embarking on the greatest challenge of his life to become the world’s first underwater cinematographer with quadriplegia. The film was shown in cinemas, Australia & New Zealand wide. He has now recently completed his 3rd feature length documentary film 'How To Thrive' which follows Marie McLeod, an unconventional Positive Psychology coach, who takes on 10 volunteers with complex psychological issues on a quest to learn ‘how to thrive.' The film is set for release in late 2022. He has also contributed to the world of video games with his debut game 'The Last Stand: Aftermath' which was released on November 16th, 2021 on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series and PC.

Sean has also been releasing music onto all major streaming stores since 2017. His first full album 'An Everlasting Serenity' was released on March 25th, 2020 which is a meditation/easy listening work which was then followed by 'Avori,' his 2nd album which is a solo piano work, released on November 24th, 2020 and features numerous collaborations from other composers and artists around the world. He is currently working on his 3rd album release which will be cinematic in style and is planned for a late 2022 release.

Born in Liverpool, England, he started out at the early age of five where his interest in music began at the piano and eventually would turn to film music. In late 2004, he immigrated to Australia where his musical skills had the opportunity to develop further. He went on to earn his Bachelor of Music Major In Composition and Music Technology in 2011 from The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, graduating in 2015. Scores to many documentaries & films have gained recognition and interest from producers & directors both domestically and internationally.
