A Better You

I had the pleasure of scoring the new improvised dramedy “A Better You” which is now available today on VOD and in select theaters nation wide. Directed by Upright Citizens Brigade co-founder, Matt Walsh, “A Better You” is a satirical look at LA’s self-help culture. Brian Huskey, who co-wrote the film with Walsh, plays Dr. Ron, a hypnotherapist who is so sure of his ability to fix people’s problems but is unable to see his own as his life crumbles around him.

At the beginning of the process, Matt and I discussed his love of The Flaming Lips as well as the scores of Jon Brion (an indie staple). My guitar based score for the film starts off light and fun with dreamy elements, including a music-box instrument called a Polyphon (I used 8dio’s great sample instrument) that has a deep, rich, almost spiritual feeling underneath it’s bright bell sounds. As Ron’s story progresses, the score becomes deeper, richer, warmer, as he starts to come to terms with his mistakes and what’s really important in life.
