New Feature Film
Yesterday made it official, I signed the contract and now work can begin on the feature film “Comforting Skin” written and directed by Derek Franson.
Here is the official Facebook page.
This score will be the complete opposite to Silk Boy; dark, dissonant and experimental. I can’t wait!!!
Based on the talks and few meetings I have had with Derek I am convinced that working with him will be a pleasure. Not only is he easy-going, a lover of film scores and we get along great, but he is approaching the score for this film as something integral to the story telling, not as mere sonic wallpaper.
And he wants the score to be experimental. “Experimental” can mean different things to different people, so I played some George Crumb, Lutoslwasky and Ligeti and that was really the direction he wanted. He loved the talking into the flute effects of Crumb. Amazing!
He is also very smart in his approach to dealing with me as a composer, providing a careful balance between guidance and freedom in order to create a fertile creative environment
Guidance is important because without goals you cannot aim, and freedom is also needed in order to find a unique voice to the film and allow me to take ownership of the score by putting myself into it. Because if I am just imitating and not being creative, then, what’s the point?
And also, Derek will also avoid the dreaded temp track! The plan is to develop the sound and concept of the score along with the edit and effects.
Only something great can come of this!
I will keep a diary of this project as well, like I did with “The Legend of Silk Boy”.
