The return of the Independent Film Festival of Boston to it’s full-scale, pre-pandemic glory was a special milestone for the Boston film community, and I wanted to capture something about that in this year’s trailer score.

This being an ‘Independent Film’ festival, I’ve tended to shy away from a traditional Hollywood approach for previous trailers, but I thought for this occasion something bigger that hits a couple of genre references would be the right way to say, “Welcome Back to the Movies!”

Sound Designer extraordinaire Mark Wong was busy on this one too, creating the ambience of a waking cityscape. He and filmmaker Larry Anderson did a great job making this year’s fun, charming trailer.
