I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be coming on board the independent feature film Polycarp: Destroyer of Gods as the composer! I’m just beginning the early writing stages for this film and it’s looking to be a great experience. The emotions of the story and it’s characters are deep and rich and the geographic setting is evocative, which make scoring a treat. Here’s a short synopsis of the film:
A young slave girl, Anna, is rescued and adopted by Christians in the 2nd century Smyrna and befriended by their aged bishop, Polycarp. As Anna is taught by Polycarp and her new family, she struggles to reconcile her beliefs with those of the Christians. When the Roman proconsul demands that all citizens worship Caesar to show their allegiance to Rome, Polycarp and the Christians must find courage to stand for their faith against the growing threat of persecution. Anna is forced to come to grips with the truth and choose whom she is willing to live – and die – for.
Of significant note, the film currently is running a kickstarter campaign (only 9 hours left!) to help fund remaining stages of production. Be sure to support the film and check out the unique rewards and incentives for backers that will not last much longer.
