I’m Going to Sundance (and other news)

In Uncategorized on January 6, 2019 at 5:34 pm

I scored the short film Under Covers, by Michaela Olsen, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. I was hired by Mighty Oak last year to compose the music, and I had the absolute best time. Re-watching it over Christmas with my musician father was a real treat as I got to discuss some of the more nuanced aspects of the score—stuff like repeating motifs, and the challenge of writing and recording a song that sounds like Billie Holiday. Check out the trailer below!

The Backward Astronomer has a lot of laurels

I’m so happy that the movie I made with Jake Nelson is getting so much attention. I’ve been flying to as many festivals as I can to accept awards. Here’s a picture of me in Winchester, England, where we got “Honorable Mention”.

And here’s just a current screenshot of our film’s page where Jake has been updating this image with every new festival laurel we receive.
