    Burn Out

    "Burn Out" is the wonderfully animated and 80's inspired horror short film by Margot Gordon! I had the pleasure of providing an original score for it.

    Escape From Fremantle

    I was honored when James asked me to work on his new short film: Escape From Fremantle! Composing the full score for a silent film was a daunting task because that meant all you would pretty much hear would be my music. But I had so much fun making it, and the collaboration was wonderful. I am so proud of the end result, and the short film that James and his crew made. I cannot wait to see what he…

    ★★★★

    Minari was just wonderful. Considering the amount of Asian-Americans there are that undoubtedly have compelling stories like this to tell; I was surprised to find that I don't think I've ever seen a film that captures the Asian-American immigrant experience like this, which I'm very grateful for. I am so, so happy that Steven Yuen, Yuh-Jung Youn and Lee Isaac Chung got nominated for it.

    ★★★★½

    Normal People is one of the most beautiful shows I've seen in a while. I don't think I've ever seen young-love portrayed in such a viscerally authentic manner. I also loved that both people in the relationship were written as well-rounded and interesting characters on their own, and that there was much more to them as individuals besides their mutual relationship (which I find is often the case in romantic movies/shows).

    Secrets & Lies

    ★★★★★

    In the hands of lesser director, Secrets & Lies could have easily been a melodramatic, sentimental soap opera, but with some of the most real performances you will ever see, observant direction and nuanced writing, Mike Leigh has created a devastatingly authentic, contemporary and frightingly realistic people-person masterpiece where he stupendously mixes humor and pathos as if it's nothing.

    Mike Leigh is one of the most humanist filmmakers to have ever walked the earth. He is a man who just loves…
