"The Caper": Original Music for Short Film
Original musical score for this short film, a romantic comedy directed by Matthew Anderson. Here's a highlight reel:
As two women bond over dating fatigue and a love of film noir, a story unfolds that inspired me to write bossa nova (2 versions: sprightly upbeat and downtempo lachrymose, each somehow perfect to cover montage sequences), piano jazz, a 1930s horror film score (source from the TV), cheesy beach music, and a "vintage" orchestral cue to underscore a detour into the aforementioned noir. The soundtrack also features music from Annie and the Bang Bang.
"The Caper" premiered at the 2015 Twin Cities Film Festival on Wednesday, October 28th, 2015. The film received an Honorable Mention for the Audience Award at the festival.
Here's a playlist of music featured in the film:
