This summer, I had the privilege of working with one of my childhood band directors, Bradley Hawkins, composing the music for a short film that he wrote and directed to feature his daughter, Sarah Hawkins. The film is called Roller Coaster, and it contains hardly any dialog at all, which means the musical score had to maintain its own role as a sort of character in the film.

Having not worked on a film project in a while, it was fun (and challenging) to dive back into this process. The film's Hollywood premiere is occurring next week on November 11th, followed by a Bay Area screening on the 22nd, and hopefully a bunch of festivals after that! 

The original score is now available here, along with more info about the film.
