February 2011 - Chris Schuette

Indiana Corey

February 17, 2011 | By | 2 Comments

When I’m not busy staring at my 8-month daughter, I can usually be found recording music for films, commercials, and the occasional video game (although not occasional enough, mind you.)  I was recently hired to score a short film for my friend, Chars Bonin over at OrangeApple Productions.  Chars has been a filmmaker for over twenty years and in preparation for an upcoming event, he asked if I could record a score for one of his earliest films from 1993.  Since I’m a sucker for early 1990s cinema, I quickly agreed.

This is a silent 8mm film called “Indiana Corey,” and it is just over 4 minutes long.  As you may guess, it is an homage to “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”  As a result, it was pretty obvious to me that the score needed to have a fun, swashbuckling feel to mirror the action on the screen.  I like the way it turned out and I hope you enjoy it too.  Be sure to stick around for the music over the end credits, because I seriously slapped that together in about 30 minutes.  Enjoy!

Patty and I took Isla to Underwater Adventure at the Mall of America recently.  And by “recently,” I mean “sometime in 2011.”  Isla loved the chance to see fish, unlike her previous indifference to meeting “Fish,” Mr. Abe Vigoda

Abe Vigoda is still alive

We had a great time and Isla really seemed to enjoy the experience.  Nothing wacky happened during our trip to the mall, although Patty and I enjoyed a Cinnabon and I got into a slap-fight with the lady at Glamor Shots over a previously unresolved issue involving the best way to photograph a rhinestone -studded jacket, but that was it.  Oh, and if you ever want to visit the Mall of America without all of the interpersonal jostling, I highly recommend you visit on a Wednesday morning. Just call in sick for work.  Seriously, I’m totally cool with that.

Here are some aquarium photos, yo.

(You thought I was joking about the Cinnabon, didn’t you?)
