Hello Coffee N Donutz fans,
Catherine Grealish here, one of the Producers at CND. I wanted to give you an update on life behind the scenes.
There are many exciting things happening right now at Coffee N Donutz Productions. While we have some fantastic feature film projects in the mix, priority number one is wrapping up post-production for Reversal. Such a fantastic short must be released to festivals as soon as possible!
One of the hats I wear at CND is composer-in-residence. Just recently I completed the score for Reversal. I love writing music for film, in general, but for a number of reasons Reversal was a particularly enjoyable experience.
First of all, the cinematography is fantastic, thanks to Chris Taylor of Adventus Films. Nothing like beautiful images to help the creative juices start flowing.
Secondly, there are a number of scenes in the film which are completely free from dialogue. Film score often takes a backseat to dialogue, so I love it when music is allowed to be front and center.
Lastly, there is the concept: Reversal. This film is full of mystery thanks to the fantastic screenplay by Jen Page. You are never quite sure what the real story is. Ambiguity is a fun concept to explore musically, as is the idea of things being constantly twisted. The main musical idea, carried by the piano, features a theme being manipulated and turned around.
To stay informed on Reversal updates, keep an eye on this blog and on our Reversal Facebook page. We have already started submitting to Festivals. We can’t wait to share with you all the exciting locations where Reversal will be screening. Film World: here we come!
All the best,
Creative Director and Producer
