Lindsay Marcus '97 composed the score for If Anything Happens I Love You, which took home the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film at the 2021 Academy Awards.
The 12-minute film, which was written and directed by Will McCormack and Michael Govier, portrays a couple's struggle after losing a child in a school shooting. Since the film does not feature dialogue, the score plays a central role in conveying its theme and emotion. Lindsay wrote over eight minutes of original music for the film, and the directors have described her work as genius. If Anything Happens I Love You is available to stream on Netflix.
