2020 Amuse Musical Award Best Prize winner" Sleep Singing" Bradley Porter

"We had an amazing time filming SLEEP SINGING – to be given the freedom and support to make a musical the way we wanted to by Amuse was unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced. We’ve been lucky to work with incredibly talented composers, movement directors and choreographers to create something really special – that no only feels original, but also represents London at its finest. We can’t wait to share it with you."

2020 Amuse Musical Award Finalist "Flaws" Jake Kuhn
"The Amuse and Short Shorts Musical Competition gave me the courage to create a film in a genre that I forever wanted to tackle yet never had the opportunity. With their help and advice, my crew and I pushed the possibilities for such a story in innovative directions; working with contemporary tap dancers, miniature models and carefully designed sets. It was an incredible experience to create a modern musical that felt in keeping with a genre we love so dearly."
