KILLING GROUND received it’s international debut at Sundance and was acquired for international theatrical release. It is now available on iTunes and Netflix (all regions except Australia).

The film is a thrilling ride. “A couple's camping trip turns into a frightening ordeal when they stumble across the scene of a horrific crime.”

The score captures the vast Australian landscape with live orchestra and solos by Savannah Jo Lack and described as a “first rate score” by Variety. For score excerpts, click here.

"A remote campsite. An abandoned tent. A romantic getaway to die for.

When young urbanites Ian and Sam decide to go camping, they arrive at their isolated destination to discover another tent already set up, but no sign of its owners. With the other campers at large, Ian and Sam's discovery of a child wandering alone sets off a terrifying chain of events that will push them to their limits – and beyond.

Inspired by Michael Haneke's Funny Games and Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs, writer/director Damien Power's gloriously tense and unsettling feature-film debut Killing Ground showcases a menacingly against-type Aaron Pedersen, in a low-budget survival thriller pulsing with high-stakes scares, piercing intensity and shocking violence that will make you think twice next time you dare to head beyond the bright lights of the city."

After teaming up with director Amit Gupta and the Hello Robot team in LA and India for their new Woodland spot, we’re excited to be nominated for Best Song/Score for a Commercial Advertisement at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. This was a fun and fairly epic challenge for the cinema. We relished recording live strings and American Indian flute to bring it to life.
