I first approached RedShirt Film’s Jamie McKeller because I heard he was doing an 80s inspired action short and I knew I had a few pieces of music in my archive that he might be interested in. He was very positive and asked me to score the film, and I was delighted as I am a huge fan of RedShirt’s work.
I was supplied with a locked edit of the 7 minute short, albeit without VFX, dialogue etc and got a pretty clear brief from Jamie as to what he wanted.
I’m pretty pleased with the result, although I learned an awful lot in the process of creating the score. Feedback so far has been great, and getting to see the movie premiere in York was a genuine thrill!
