Well what can I say? Thank you so much for all your very hard work making it a truly memorable and astonishingly successful session. The players were amazing, really world class and I would have no hesitation giving them a project of any size or complexity.

Last year, I scored a film called ‘What About Love’ with Andy Garcia and Sharon Stone. I wanted to get the best results I could so I thought of some incredible players that I wanted to record. When I realized it meant dealing with the AFM, that thought quickly vanished. I thought about doing it abroad and then a colleague recommended Jennifer Biggs Walton. I can’t tell you how easy it was doing it with her and Karen Garrity. They really did an incredible job. We got really wonderful musicians and I, as well as the director were more than pleased with the results!

Nothing can describe how deeply special our day was recording the original score for DEBRIS, a short film that I wrote and directed as a Fellow with Film Independent Project Involve. On behalf of all the filmmakers with DEBRIS we could not be more happy with the musical artists who gathered around to create a deeply affecting score for our film. Ayana Haviv brought the recording room to tears with her other-worldly voice. Karen Garrity supported her with a heartbreaking cello performance that took our breath away. Les Brockmann recorded and mixed it ensuring their artistry would sing when married to image.  And Nicolas Repetto wrote and led us through a stunning musical score that now will be etched forever into cinema. Our heartfelt thanks. Welcome to the DEBRIS family. Our little film with a big heart.
