CSV wins Best Music at Chicago Horror Film Fest
Stoked to find out that Chocolate Strawberry Vanilla won Best Music at the Chicago Horror Film Festival recently. It's great to have work acknowledged like this, and it always makes me reflect on how these things come about. Like all elements of filmmaking, a good score - and certainly this score - are realised through close collaboration. Stuart Simpson's direction was precise and insightful, stretching me to write and produce a score that I'm really happy with - and probably wouldn't have come up with on my own. I think I have 7 drafts of the main title tucked away somewhere, each one closer to what Stu was after, each one better than the last. The festival run for CSV is going gangbusters and DVD release approaches fast.
