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!
