ADR for The Point of Regret


I hosted the Simon, Chris and Dave from the feature film "The Point of Regret" on Monday for an ADR session. We re-recorded a number of lines of Chris's dialogue where the on-set mic's didn't capture the audio cleanly enough.

It all went really well and it provided a great opportunity to try out my new SE Electronics 2200a mic and the Reflexion filter... and both were absolutely brilliant.

I'll be working on selecting the best takes, treating with the necessary ambience and producing the final mix thru this week and next.

Special thanks to my wife, Sam, who worked away in the background and prepared some wonderful food for us all, so we could concentrate on the recording session.

Ghost in the Machine - Final 4 !!


I've been told the producer has received more than 40 pitches from composers... he's narrowed it down to just 4... and I'm one of them!

Awaiting the final decision - it's a great film so would be a great project to work on.

Fingers crossed.

Pitching for "Ghost in the Machine"


Just finishing off a demo as my pitch for a sci-fi feature film called "Ghost in the Machine"... looks like a great film so hoping I will win them over.

Got a great intro, need more in the action sequence but time is pressing so need to wrap up what I've done.

New Course - Cinematic Orchestration


I recently started the Cinematic Orchestration, from Guy Michelmore's successful training organisation ThinkSpace, and I'm already halfway thru module 2.

I have to say it is outstandingly good and my knowledge of orchestration has taken some leaps in understanding.

The course lasts 12 months and costs £609 at the time of writing, but the duration can be extended by buying extra credits.

Here is an overview of the course topics:
  • Unit 1: An Introduction to Orchestration
  • Unit 2: Strings 1
  • Unit 3: Strings 2
  • Unit 4: Woodwind 1
  • Unit 5: Woodwind 2
  • Unit 6: Brass 1
  • Unit 7: Brass 2
  • Unit 8: Writing for Harp and Percussion
  • Unit 9: Writing for Small Orchestra
  • Unit10: Writing for Large Orchestra
  • Unit11: Working with Musicians
  • Sampling Technology Supplement
At the time of writing the course costs £609 inc delivery

New Commission - Revelation


Following on from the successful collaboration with John Edwards from DayZero Productions on "The Last Piece", John asked me to score his forthcoming documentary "Revelation".

"Revelation" focusses on credit card fraud and how easy it is given the various resources of the internet, and the short-sightedness of the credit providers in their security measures.

John is hoping that Channel 4 will buy the documentary as they have expressed interest and asked for a screening copy, which was provided to them this week. So, we are just awaiting their decision... fingers crossed.
