I’m happy to announce that I will be scoring the upcoming satirical short film, The Cure. The Cure is a fun, fast-paced look at a group of inept survivors in the Zombie Apocalypse. It has all the exciting elements of a zombie movie with a few hilarious twists mixed in as well.
This will be a fun and exciting project, and the music should reflect that as well. The music will include typical orchestration mixed with more modern elements of electronics and guitar, which draws from some of our favorite zombie movies such as Zombieland and Shaun Of The Dead, as well as other hilariously epic films like Hot Fuzz. Looking forward to putting the pen to paper on this one!
The Cure is currently in post-production, and is set to release later this summer. You can find out more about The Cure on the website… http://www.whatisthecure.tv/
Here’s a sneak peak at the most recently completed game soundtrack, Death by Game Show, by Oointah! Death by Game Show is a tower defense style game in which you use a multitude of weapons and strategies to conquer an ever increasing difficulty of droids that are out to kill our main character, the beloved and rotund U.H. Wutt. This game is truly a challenge at times, but is incredibly fun and addicting. The music represents that as well throughout the 7 part soundtrack, which goes through various styles from level to level. You can get a taste of the soundtrack here! These are 2 tracks used in Death by Game Show.
It’s always a treat to have the opportunity to work with people from across the globe, and this case is no exception. I have been asked to compose music to accompany a new promotional video for the Equine Pathfinders Foundation, based out of New Zealand. The staff at Dune Lake Lodge are working with horses to provide an environment where people struggling with any number of physical or mental afflictions can interact with each other, the Lodge, and the animals in order to cope with their own struggles and integrate fluidly with culture and society. It is an honor to collaborate with an organization with such a positive influence in the world.
“I’ve been blown away by the changes I’ve seen people go through in just half an hour with the horses following the steps the staff instruct when approaching, speaking to, and riding on the creatures. People leave Dune Lakes Lodge more comfortable with themselves and confident in their place alongside their peers.”
