The score to Ode In Blood has been completed. Director Rea Rangaka wanted a fusion of Japanese, African, and Western elements in the score to give the film the international flavor it deserved. The instrumentation included shakuhachi, shamisen, koto, African percussion, piano, and strings.
I had the extreme pleasure of writing the score to the romantic-comedy, Playing It Straight, directed by the wonderfully talented, Michael P. Kenney. The film is about Patrick, a successful man who has been promoted to VP of his boss’s company and is engaged to marry his boss’ daughter. To everyone, Patrick might appear to be the perfect son-in-law, but his fiance’s brother has some news that will shock everyone in the family! Lots of great comedy and incredible acting from Nicholas Downs (eCupid, Constantine, Pearl Harbor)! Stay tuned for a screening very soon!

The score to Almsgiver is now complete. The story is about a troubled mother named Anna who starts to work for Damien, a drug dealer, but when things go horrifically wrong for Anna while on a job, she must face the decision of her life when she confronts Damien. Director Sam Shaib wanted a very dramatic score that at it’s core told the story through mild melodies, subtle textures, and a touch of live ambience.
