A short film by director Adam Drake created for the 168 Project 2011. Film had to be made within 168 hours.

One day I got an email from a friend if I would be able to help out on a short film project. I said yes and little later I got an email from director Adam Drake with the script attached. We talked about the schedule which was tight anyway and I started composing and producing. The only “given” was the end titles music which the director wanted it to be the “March of the Gladiators” by Julius Fučík. So I did a new arrangement and remix for it.

There is a lot of dialog in the movie so we had to be very careful with the use of music. It seems we did a good job since we won Best Comedy at the Gideon Film Festival.
