  • The OST was recorded with a LIVE 14 piece Orchestra Session – Sacramento, CA @ Three Stages Folsom and was mixed with Synth orchestral Samples. I felt the combination of live and synth in some scenes was a better choice as it added more power to the overall final sound.
  • The final film cut many of the tracks and was replaced by stock music… unfortunately.
  • Director Matt Thompson flew in to go over the score scene by scene. It was a great collaborative effort.
  • We wrote the score not knowing we would eventually record with the orchestra.
  • I “attended” the recording session via Skype.
  • While recording with the orchestra, one high violin part shreaked me and the other players… We cut the high note line and just like that… “The Suspense was Gone.”
  • My favorite track, “The Bloodline Ends” was cut almost entire out of the final film.
