During the summer of 2010, I had the opportunity to score the short film Arthur. The film was directed by John Jacobsen (The Artist Toolbox, Around The Fire…) and was made in order to showcase the best of film making that can be accomplished in Washington.

It was quite challenging to work on this film. The deadline was tight to start with (nothing new there 🙂 But the film has very few dialogues and therefore the music is an extremely important component of the film. At this point, it becomes the story teller. But in addition, John wanted the music to stand by itself as a musical piece without the pictures, while synchronized to each of his cuts.

I did the job in one full week. The score ended up being really great, full orchestral and a Boychoir on top of it! The film was largely acclaimed during the world premiere at the SIFF cinema on October 9th 2010. The film was played in front of a full house (400 people). For the fun facts, the film is starring Aaron Hart, who not only is the youngest actor to ever receive a Screen Actor Guild Award, but happen to star in another film that I will be scoring, which was in production before I got attached to “Arthur”. So I ended up meeting him on the set of ZERO POINT (another film that I will soon post about) and then got to score a film where he was starring… So at this point, I will soon have two film starring Aaron Hart in my resume 🙂 Funny how it goes sometimes.

So far, Arthur won the Best of Fest award and is currently an official selection at the 2011 Sedona International Film Festival

The music I did for it will soon be available for listening on my website, so make sure to check it out!
