Over the last few days I made some mockups of Lalo Schifrin’s new score for Rush Hour III which stars Jackie Chan. Lalo is an old school composer and he still prefers to write with pencil and paper, so I was part of the team led by Ruy Folguera which prepared realistic mockups for the director to hear and comment on. It’s a real treat to work so closely with such a legend of film music.
The music mix for Becky Doppelt’s documentary Take A Bow, for which I was the composer, wrapped today. I scored it here in Los Angeles, the film will be dubbed in Chicago, and then it’s finished! That’s good news for any documentary, because docs take forever to make. This is my first feature film score, and I’m very proud of how it turned out.
We had a preliminary screening of Rebecca Doppelt’s documentary Take A Bow in Chicago today at Colombia College. The film was a success and it is very close to finished. Although it was not intended to be the focal point, my film score got lots of attention from the audience.
Today my music was chosen to be a part of the logo branding for a film production company called Robert Rollins Pictures. Branding is a big thing and a long-term commitment, so I’m honored to be the sonic voice of the company.
The 50’s TV show “Ozzie and Harriet” will soon be re-released on DVD, and I wrote new music for the main title and end title. Since many of the episodes are online already, we’re replacing the theme music to make it easy to track and combat online piracy of the new remastered release. I produced the recording session 50’s style with lots of open mics, everybody in one room playing together, and I even recorded with reel-to-reel tape.
