Friends and Family Screening of "From This Day Forward" is a success!!
Last night was the Friends and Family screening of Hannah Driscoll’s film, From This Day Forward.
Below is the synopsis of the film:
Finally engaging in their first moments of physical intimacy, a newly wed couple discovers their past is more intertwined than they expected. Both parties can hardly fathom how sinister and traumatic their past can be.
I was introduced to Hannah by our amazing producer, Roxy Shih. Hannah and I connected immediately. She loved my initial ideas when spoke over the phone. When the film was edited and locked, we had our spotting session and discussed how Shea, our female lead (played by Cindy Chu), would feel since we wanted the score to be from her point-of-view.
I developed a malleable romantic theme that was hopeful, ethereal, and romantic for violin solo, piano, strings, and electronics that captured Shea’s fairy tale until her husband, Michael (played by Adam Huss) derails their most intimate moment by abusing her in the most shocking of ways.
The theme then makes a return and transforms to a more distant, distraught, jagged, and dark version of the original theme against a polytonal accompaniment. The fairy tale is twisted and turned upside down.
