Since then, Bertelmann has provided music for a large number of films and TV shows, most recently the Showtime series Your Honor, starring Bryan Cranston. In addition, he scored the music for the Emmy-and BAFTA-nominated mini-series Patrick Melrose, the BBC- commissioned crime series Dublin Murders, Netflix’s blockbuster movie of the summer 2020, The Old Guard starring Charlize Theron, Summerland with Gemma Arterton, Francis Lee’s romantic drama Ammonite, and the sci-fi movie Stowaway starring Anna Kendrick and Toni Collette, premiering on Netflix April 22.
