Z-Fest approaches once again... this year I've been tapped to work on two films. Check out the trailers below, and feel free to give a thumbs up to either/ both on youtube if you want to offer support for Best Trailer.
10 THINGS YOU'LL LEARN IN THE FIRST YEAR OF BEING A DAD
Director: Josh Stifter
My Role: Composer/ Sound Designer/ Re-Recording Mixer/ Voice Actor
A short animation by Flush Studios' Josh Stifter, this piece takes a lighthearted look at the early days of fatherhood. I provided an original musical score rooted in music box melodies and pedal steel voicings; the latter undulate to accompany each number as it appears. I also assembled sound design that's heavy on the squishes and squirts appropriate to the subject matter. And I performed the narration voiceover too!
Director: Andrew Hunt
My Role: Sound Designer/ Re-Recording Mixer
"Personal Space" is a tense thriller directed by Andrew Hunt. I conjured lots of squeaks, creaks, fumbles and scuffs within the sound design to heighten the mood. This film reunites much of the team that brought about last year's Z-Fest champ "Clean Cut", with some nice new additions; Nathaniel Levisay's taut score, for example, was a real pleasure to work with.
