Great review for Epilogue.

Such a lovely buzz to read this very favourable review of Epilogue, a short film that I scored earlier this year for writer/ director Layke Anderson. It was my first time working with Layke and I must say the project was a joy to be involved in. We seemed to find common ground instantly and just creatively clicked, which was brilliant. It's a dark subject, told with the greatest subtlety that is so captivating.

You can read the full review here - so nice that the music gets a mention :-)

The score is a bed of synths and cello, it has a warped, eerie distinctly uncomfortable feel and has very minimal melody - it's all about the texture, that's something that I really love to put detail into.

You can listen to the full score on my LISTEN page, under the heading FILM.

Here's the trailer to the movie...

Growing up in 1950s England in an intolerant and uninformed world, young Chris Winters struggles to fit into the gender roles dictated by wider society. A more than tough childhood left behind, Chris meets dream woman Julie, and life lightens a little, but the growing feeling that theirs is a life half lived haunts Chris. Endlessly imagining what might have been, Chris is finally struck by the realisation that for some decisions there is no right answer, and that it's those that truly define us.
