Work in Progress: "Spiritual Contact" and "Arc of Violence"


Just a quick update... it's been quiet for a few months and then two picture locks drop into my lap in the same week... it's going to be busy!

Spiritual Contact

Emerson Pinheiro has completed the final cut and picture lock for the feature Spiritual Contact! I have a copy of the film and have already started work on it.

We're planning for a January 27th premiere in London, but more details on that soon!

There's been some press coverage though I'm not sure what their opinion is (LOL)

Arc Of Violence

After some staffing issues delaying the editing of the film, Dwayne managed to find a new editor and pull this short film together... and it was worth the wait!

It's only 11 minutes long, but it's gritty and moody, packing a lot into that time. I now have the picture lock version I can get cracking on this too.

This film has some great direction and high quality camera shooting. It has minimal dialogue but enough to carry the story by the excellent actors, who really are bringing this alive.

Can't wait to get my teeth into this lot!

Credits Updated


Just noticed that my credits page hasn't been updated for about a year! So have slotted in the various things I've been working on and currently in progress... 2012 is going to be busy!

2010/11 were quieter times as I was working on my Orchestration Course and various things (like the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album!) for the feature film The Point of Regret.

Just sent a draft of the soundtrack for "Mr No" to the producers... I think it's turned out pretty well actually, with a lot of live piano playing and a good mix of classical and contemporary cues. Even had the wife and daughter singing one of the cues over and over, and over again LOL

Have to wait and see what the producers say, but I think we're close to done on Mr No. They have another film "Arc of Violence" that is in editing , so I'll be on that one in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, Elizabeth tells me her shoot for "In Living Memory" went well, so I'm expecting a locked edit within the week, with a target date of the end of May to complete. Can't wait for this as it sounded stunning in the script!

It's so nice to be so busy - I'm working all hours to meet everyone's deadlines and provide the best soundtracks I possibly can, but I wouldn't have it any other way :-)

In Loving Memory - New Film Project


Got a really nice email yesterday from Elizabeth (no further details), asking if I would like to provide the soundtrack for a short film she is producing. Reading the script, it's a bit eerie with great imagery, and I love the direction Elizabeth wants the music to take.

Apparently, I was referred by Daniel Owen, who I don't actually know, but my thanks go to him for the referral!

Elizabeth reckons filming will happen this week, with a deadline of the end of the month, so I'm looking forward to getting stuck into that, with a quick turnaround!

I'll keep you posted how it goes.

... until then full steam ahead to finish "Mr No" first! (it's 75% done now so another evening and should be complete)

Been a whille...


Hey all,

Sorry it's been a while since I posted, there have been a number of musical and non-musical obstacles (including an operation on my arm) that had to be dealt with over the past 6 months. All done now so more time for projects! :-)

I've got a number of things on the go as follows:

  • Spiritual Contact - feature length - about the ghostly sightings of a young boy (music and audio SFX)
    • I've just finished the soundtrack for the trailer for this, which is going to be premièred at the writer/producers birthday party this Sunday 15th April!
  • DIY- short and quirky comedy about DIY exploits (audio SFX)
  • Mr No - short comedy - this has undergone some changes so I'm re-working the score and sound
  • The Lost - feature length - this has been a labour of love for Johann Neethling but he's kept going with it and now the picture lock is almost done. I hope to be seeing the final cut in the next few weeks.

Also coming is a short horror called Arc of Violence which is about to finish shooting.

On top of that I am still studying my Cinematic Orchestration course which just keeps on getting better and better!
