About the project

Music composition for Tom Green’s hard-hitting new film. Visionary director Green (‘Monsters’) created a thrilling film about a very serious topic – tax evasion.

Walter’s music won several awards in 2019 including the prestigious Clio Award, British Arrow Award, Creative Circle Award and D&AD.

The music features acoustic and electronic instruments that were enhanced with analog and digital effects, as well as a large modular synth setup to create unique sound textures. ‚The Heist‘ was also screened in cinemas with an enhanced surround mix in Dolby Atmos produced by Factory.

Some impressions



„Gripping scenes, excellent production value, and a clever script combine to create an ad that will certainly have an impact on the perceptions of many adults. A dramatic soundtrack adds to the drama. The message is powerful and is delivered almost exactly like a call to action.“
