Have I mentioned yet that I recently played my first role in a film? That it was the starring role (gulp)? That it was directed by Andrea Dorfman of How to be Alone fame and that it comes out in September!?
Well, I did. That happened. Read all about it here. All winter and early spring I worked with Halifax recording legend, Charles Austin, to put the soundtrack together. It’s a collection of new songs written specifically for the film, as well as old songs previously recorded, as well as little ditties with names like ‘sparklee tree’ and ‘frisbee scene’. We scored it. We scored the movie and had a lot of fun doing that. I got to play instruments I don’t really know how to play. Like marimba. And synthesizer. And cha-cha-sounding-percussion toy.
I’m really excited for this film to come out, to sit with friends and community and watch it on a big screen with loud sound. Will keep you posted about it’s debut.
