A year later, in the fall of 2007, I was taking Narrative Video Production and Basic Film at Drexel University and I decided that it was time to make The Music Box. Combining the final projects for both classes I ventured to New York City to work with my buddy Collen Doyle and his fellow actors at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. What came out of the collaboration was a wonderfully well shot short film.
It took three years for me to find the composer necessary for the score. It ended up being the composer who I hired to score my senior project film, Virago, and I gave him the task of scoring The Music Box. What he delivered made me ecstatic as I had never thought it possible to get a score like the one he provided. His music makes this movie, which is a story told through the visuals and the music. The marriage of my visual storytelling and his music makes this a compelling short film that I hope can be as educational as it is entertaining.
