Original music for "Catch Up," written and directed by Mia Santos.
The film will premiere at The Ryerson University Film Festival
on June 2nd, 2012, at The TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto.
My sister and I first came up with the premise for this film while waiting in line for a ride at an amusement park.
It was Halloween and the park was open for business catering to a wide assortment of ghastlies and ghoulies.
The bright lights of the rides at dusk, the screams of delight from the folks on rollercoasters, the costumes... Everything was rife with inspiration.
"Hey, wouldn't it be funny if a guy dressed like...?" would be followed by "And then he gets confused with..."
"Yeah!" we both agreed. "That would definitely be hilarious!"
Many years later I am pleasantly surprised to see that my sister was able to bring our banter to the screen! It was a fairly long process and facinating to see how it all came about. I am deeply honoured to have been asked to help create the music for it. And I am indebted to Joseph Owen for helping me carry it all out! It was a fun project all around!
