‘Keratin’ premieres on Directors Notes
An amazing folk-horror short film I was lucky enough to compose the score for is premiering today on Directors Notes –
The directors were interviewed as part of the DN feature and they perfectly and very kindly summed up my compositional approach: “James Warburton captured organic sounds from the trees, branches and rivers of his local forest; stretching and distorting them through old tape decks to create a sense of the forest “breathing.” We quickly felt we both trusted James implicitly and allowed him the creative freedom to find the film’s voice and elevate the tone.”
It was a hugely enjoyable collaborative experience throughout. It’s a privilege to be trusted with complete freedom to express yourself, I’m grateful to the incredibly talented team for their faith in me.
If atmospheric, dystopian, forest-based-folklore is your thing, then I hope you enjoy watching.
‘Keratin’ was co-directed by Andrew Butler and James Wilson for Backbone Films, produced by Laurie Mahon, edited by Alex Marshall with sound-design by Shane Gravestock.
