Sundance Composers + Documentary Lab and recent highlights

I’ve just returned from the Sundance Composers + Documentary Lab in Utah. It was an inspiring week full of nature and creative work– I collaborated closely with filmmakers Angad Bhalla and Ricardo Acosta on their upcoming film Herman’s House alongside creative advisors Vivien Hillgrove, Peter Golub, Jon Else,Martin Bresnick and Cara Mertes. Read the IndieWire Article.

I recently scored Gratitude, a surreal dark comedy by director Cyrus Mirakhor, and had the incredible opportunity to work with Ljova and the Kontraband on the music. The film premiered at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and took home the award for Best Comedy Short! I will be posting tracks soon, and in the meantime check out Gratitude’s Facebook Page.

Nicholas McCarthy‘s standout short film The Pact continues its festival run, with the Canadian premiere at Fantasia International Film Festiva andl Hollyshorts in Los Angeles up next! Follow The Pact on Facebook.

Speaking of social media, you can now find me on Facebook and Twitter:

The Pact will premiere at Sundance 2011

I’m happy to announce that I am currently working on the original score for director Nicholas McCarthy’s film The Pact, one of only 24 U.S. Narrative short films selected to premiere at Sundance 2011.  The score is shaping into a haunting piece of work, and will feature an exciting musical collaboration (more on that soon).  You can find more information on Sundance here.

In other news, congratulations to the Burning in the Sun team for winning the innovation category in LinkTV‘s ViewChange contest!  A few other recent projects will be gearing up for screenings and more soon, so stay tuned!

UPDATE: The tremendous musical talents of Anna Bulbrook of The Airborne Toxic Event (violin) and Dan Tepfer (piano) are featured on The Pact‘s score!
