UK FILM REVIEW of TYIDN

The UK Film Review, a film reviews website based in London, England, gave THE YEAR I DID NOTHING a 4-star review…

The Year I Did Nothing is funny, charming and insightful in its depiction of the political history of the Philippines in 1985-6. This coming of age story is successful in intertwining important political milestones in a country’s history while documenting a family’s year while they await their own momentous change.”

-Hannah Sayer, UK Film Review

FROM THE WINDOW

Post-production has started for FROM THE WINDOW, the next short film by director Adam P. Cray. Brandon and Adam’s last collaboration, SAFE DISTANCE, resulted in a 5 minute experimental score. We can look forward to another interesting sound scape coming up.

UPCOMING PROJECTS 2019

The new year is already busy in terms of new film projects in production with one feature film score completed and more coming up later in the year.

First up is the feature film THE YEAR I DID NOTHING for director Ana Barredo. The film takes place in 1985 Manila and follows young siblings who creatively kill time together waiting for their US immigration to slowly process and their homeland readies to revolt against its most famous dictator, Ferdinand Marcos.

Frequent collaborator Roger Lay Jr. also has a few projects in production, one of which is a short film titled ALMA’S POND. The short is based on a tale written by acclaimed children’s author Bruce Coville and stars some familiar faces from Brandon and Roger’s previous collaboration ALIENS ATE MY HOMEWORK.
