In this season’s behind-the-scenes episode, Falcon (Ken Marino) holds an Art Show showcasing his photography on the Childrens Hospital set.
I was brought on to this episode pretty early on during editing because we were having some difficulty figuring out what the style the score should be in. Previous “behind-the-scenes” episodes were each scored differently. The original “Newsreaders” had a 60-minutes type news score, “Behind the Scenes” was mostly dry with score for a couple dramatic scenes, and “My Friend Falcon” was scored like a documentary. For this episode, we decided to take a light drama, indie-film, small ensemble approach to add some life and energy to the scenes without adding TOO much dramatic weight while still being able to take dramatic shifts and accents when story called for it.
The episode is scored fairly wall-to-wall in this style, with one of the more dramatic moments arriving when it’s revealed that Rory Spindell (Rob Corddry) has an absorbed twin’s face growing out of his back. A slightly creepy, but still playful cue underscores this scene and takes a sad turn as Rory is shunned by his cast mates.
