Foreshadowing

A few years ago I did sound design on this film short "Foreshadowing" for Steelehouse Productions in Tulsa. It played the festival circuit afterwards. I just found out it's on YouTube.

There was no production sound to work with, so the entire soundtrack had to be created from scratch; down to the voice work by Chana and myself. (notice the exquisite scream Chana belts out near the end) John Mark Painter did the whistle-provoking score.

The director Mark Steele gave me a lot of freedom with the sound effects, and it was a great experience. We mixed it at Todd AO in Studio City.

Is that how you got Chana to scream like that--by dragging a chair across the floor? Awesome, Mark! Shows your incredible skills...

The chair got me too. Nice.

Just like to point out that this short was done WELL before Napoleon Dynamite, so there was no rip-off of the music.

Also, in response to your question: Yes, I would like a sandwich.
