One element I have been most proud of is the soundtrack to the movie. I was inspired by a song I wrote with my great friend Ryan Fitzsimmons. I took the framework we had created and ran with it.
It also holds special meaning for me. Ryan had just left NYC to move to LA, so this gave me a great way to honor that friendship. Best of all, it fit the movie perfectly – even the title I Really Like Your Style – was a serendipitous element, especially once you know the message behind the movie. Because I knew that Ryan would be listening to the final audio with extra insight, I had to ensure that the final composition would meet the high standard he deserved. That kept me on my toes and made sure I asked myself tough questions along the way.
…Plus, I was able to work in a few tiny musical jokes that only he will get. I hope that those “inside jokes” give it an extra spark of life that others will feel, even without knowing the reference.
I am making my final pass to adjust the movie’s sound effects and I plan to release the completed film in Jan 2016. The abstract images in this video relate to the final movie.
