Highway to Havasu
After Dylan's big break up two friends trick him into stealing a teacher's RV and taking a comedy adventure to remember. Highway to Havasu is an award winning, hilarious spring break coming-of-age film. I wrote a diverse, fun and interactive score in collaboration with the popular bands MEST and HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD. Highway to Havasu swept its category at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival in L.A. and was chosen as the HRIFF People's Choice Award for 2016. The film is currently in theaters in select cities and is scheduled for DVD, Hulu, Cable and Netflix release in the coming future.
The Legend of Sally and the Dunstable witch in Trapped Magic is an ominous and foreboding tale. The soundtrack takes shape around the emotions of the old tale, carrying a foreboding presence and subtle ambient low tones. The music is shaped around a simple motive that weaves in and out of the tradition studio orchestra. I use high quality synthesizer to capture the mystical and unexplained aspects of the story that loom all around. The short film has been adapted for TV in the UK and the soundtrack has was a best selling new soundtrack for February (2016) on the iTunes store.
