I safely made it to LA! While I unpack, take a gander at the first film I ever “scored”, which happens to be a one-shot 6-minute video of a turtle swimming around. My friend David Fishel sent it to me randomly one day and asked if I’d like to put music to it.
I did my best to follow my instincts, as I’d never written music to picture before. I played accordion, trumpet, a cheap synthesizer I had at the time, and even hummed a bit. It was a pretty eye-opening & fun experience for me.
Coincidentally I’m scoring a new film of David’s right now… more news about that soon.
