Maffe's dark, whimsical, and heart-warming score for Mort. (2017) has been honored with the 2018 Biola Film Festival Best Original Score award.
The film (directed by Kianna Bliven) is about a man who has the Midas touch of death and has to perform his duties as the angel of death every day falls in love with a woman who is riddled with demons of her own. Though the plot seems dark on paper, it is executed in such a way that brings the audience both laughter and tears through enduring characters and a captivating story which is complimented by Maffe's dynamic melodies and bright orchestration.
Other nominees this year were Maffe (Hexit), Foster (Beat), Santos (The Bacchae), and Qualkinbush (Verto).
