Horror Film Trailer

I recently scored the music to a trailer for a new horror film from Pillage and Plunder Pictures:

Winner of BEST SCORE - 'LAST CALL' - Baltimore 48 hour film festival

I was quite proud that I won BEST SCORE in the Baltimore 48 Hour Film Festival for this. I scored, recorded and synced the entire score to this short in less than 10 hours :) Written and Directed by Todd Shoemaker, the filmmakers are given 48 hours to write, shoot, edit and deliver a short film. It was such an honor to be part of the team! This was only my second 48 hour film festival, and I won best score so I was very happy!


Teaser to a new short film. I scored the music with Symphobia 2.

Fatal Noir - Theatre Lab/Diesel Films

Scored a Film Noir short for students at Theatre Lab. A fun project!

Creature from the Lake

This was a little cue I wrote for a retro-horror film. It was fun to write, since it has a more traditional 12-tone horror feel at the climax, rather than the typical sounds of today's horror films (lots of col legno strings, prepared piano and such).

Cinematic Strings

The other day, while looking for some new string libraries, I found this piece by Alex Wallbank, created as part of the demo for Cinematic Strings:

Although he named it HOME, I thought it sounded better with the title Journey's End. You may not agree, of course!

Here is the beautiful short piece:

And here is the player with other music using the same library:
