In 2017, I had the privilege to work on a project that is probably one of the dreams for every film composer. I got contacted by Drew and Nate – two brothers – of Ice Cream Entertainment to score their short film called HERO. They asked me to write music in the style of 80s/90s adventure scores and gave me complete creative freedom on the music, which is a very rare opportunity these days. Their love for film music and respect for the craft behind it was fantastic and I had a blast writing this music and recording it with the fantastic City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.
Here’s the title track from the movie:
You can watch the movie as well as listen to the complete score below:
The two directors even came all the way from the USA to Prague to be there for the scoring and brought some cameras to film the session and do a little music featurette with me:
