Filmmaking

I (as Boreal Pictures) was a Producer and was the screenwriter of this short film, THE NOTEBOOK, a film about the atrocities committed by Nazis in the Jewish concentration camps. The screenplay was actually an assignment I did for a class in screenwriter taught by Karl Iglesias (author of Writing for Emotional Impact). I produced this film along with my friend Kyle Kallenbach who directed the film. This is a screenshot of the five minute version of the original almost ten minute film that I edited down to five minutes to shorten the film. The film will be in the 2019 Duluth Short Shorts Film Festival Feb 16.

 

 

This is a short horror film from 2009 I wrote, directed, produced, edited. Seeing Hope. 

 

Film & TV Composing

Several scored scenes from an academic course I completed in film and television scoring at Berklee College of Music. These were class assignments. Also a few compositions I created out of thin air for practice (those with still image). I am in no way associated with the actual films for which these scenes were used in the Berklee assignments. They show my ability to score film scene cues in a variety of film genres. The scenes had no music in the original clips, they were for students like me to create original music for, to score the scenes:

I like to compose music, especially soundtrack genre compositions. My tools include Sibelius and MuseScore notation software, Reaper as my sequencer (=Digital Audio Workstations or DAW) and for notation mock-ups, MIDI keyboards, and a KORG nanoKontrol Studio mixing board. I use many sampled instruments to compose, including EWQL Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra, Spitfire Audio’s Hans Zimmer Strings, Spitfire’s Albion One / Tundra / Iceni orchestral libraries, BBC Symphonic Orchestra library from SpitfireAudio, Audiobro’s Symphony Series libraries, and Heavocity’s FORZO and NOVO libraries.
