Dominik Scherrer has composed the music for the Mammoth Screen produced series ‘The Serpent’ which aired in the UK in early 2021 and will begin airing on Netflix April 2nd. The series is written by Richard Warlow and Toby Finlay, directed by Tom Shankland and Hans Herbots and produced by Stephen Smallwood.

Inspired by real events, ‘The Serpent’ will document the crimes of Charles Sobhraj. As the chief suspect in unsolved murders of young Western travellers across India, Thailand and Nepal’s ‘Hippie Trail’ in 1975 and 1976, Sobhraj had repeatedly slipped from the grasp of authorities worldwide to become Interpol’s most wanted man, with arrest warrants on three different continents. He became known as The Serpent due to his skills at deception and evasion, but also was labelled The Bikini Killer on account of the clothes worn by some of his victims. Tahar Rahim stars as Charles Sobhraj with Jenna Coleman as his partner Marie-Andrée Leclerc, the cast also includes Billy Howle and Ellie Bamber.

The Serpent has become BBCiPlayer’s most watched new title since Normal People with over 31 Million streams across the series so far.

 

Tibet: Roof Of The World which was scored by client William Goodchild is set to premier in the coming months in the US and Europe and China.

Documentary feature “Tibet: Roof of the World” is set to premiere on leading broadcast channels in the U.S. and Europe in the coming months, following a series of co-production deals. It is also poised for a theatrical release in mainland China, where cinemas have reopened this week after being closed for nearly five months.

The film takes an in-depth look at and explores life on the highest mountain plateau on Earth. The inhospitable environment is home to varied wildlife, including: wolves struggling to raise pups in the rugged peaks; rare snub nosed monkeys facing family dramas on the forest slopes; chiru antelopes that travel hundreds of miles to give birth while facing death; and hardy pika which tough out the elements all year, whilst under constant attack.
