Michel Jean-Michel screens at LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival

Michel Jean-Michel: Overexposed will be screening at the LA Comedy Shorts fest this Sunday. I had the pleasure of scoring this mockumentary by Giancarlo Fiorentini and Jonathan Grimm. Screening details:

Sunday, April 29th @ 4pm-6pmDowntown Independent251 S. Main Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Come say hi if you’re free!

p.s. there’s a “Fiesta Broadway” event going on Sunday which will result in some street closures- here are a few handy suggestions for getting to the Downtown Indpendent this weekend.

Fact Checkers Unit - season 2 (cont'd)

Continuing on my post from last month, here are the remaining episodes of FCU. 4.5 million views as of this writing, sheesh! Anyway, let’s get to it:

Episode 4 (ft. DMC): This one’s my personal favorite of the series.. a few reasons why:

  • I got to make some “medieval old skool hip hop” for the jesters scene (2:25)
  • Brian’s character is losing his grip on reality, resulting in some of the best/darkest Pete & Brian moments in the series. Made a bittersweet strings ‘n choirs cue for the climax at 3:30
  • Thomas Middleditch as DMC’s man-servant (star of the “world’s most famous paparazzo” mockumentary I scored last year)
  • DMC of Run DMC!

Episode 5 (ft. Mary Lynn Rajskub, Mark McGrath): To wrap up the series, you’ll hear plenty more “Party in my Mouth” from Ep. 2 as well as some (terrible) dance music I put together for the party:

Kudos again to all the talented people behind this series- director Dan Beers, leads Pete & Brian, Editors Steve Makowski and Kyle Gilman, Exec Producer Thomas Bannister, Producer Larry Laboe, and many more. If you’re at SXSW on Saturday, drop by the FCU panel and give them high fives.

Michel Jean-Michel: Overexposed

Here’s a short I worked for one of my favorite filmmaking duos: Giancarlo Fiorentini and Jonathan Grimm. A candid glimpse into the life of the world’s most famous paparazzo, starring the amazing Thomas Middleditch (talk about “inhabiting” a character… sheesh)

I made an uplifting sort of “everything’s going to be alright” cue for the ending, and Danielle Birrittella stopped by to contribute some perfectly airy & sweet “buh buhs”.

It’s always a pleasure to work with Giancarlo & Jonathan. A few of our past collaborations include Elevator and The Old Man and the Seymour.
