David also created the acclaimed soundtracks for Michael Winterbottom’s Code 46, Oliver Hirschbiegel’s Five Minutes of Heaven and Yann Demange’s ’71 for which David won an Ivor Novello Award for 'Best Score' in 2015. Collaborating with Leo Abrahams David created the score for the award winning Steve McQueen film Hunger (Winner: Best Score in the Irish Film and Television Awards 2009). In 2015 David made his directorial debut with his short film entitled I Am Here.
