Upcoming Premiers for “A Better You” and “Spare Change”

I have the extremely good fortune to have not one, but two feature films premiering in Southern California in the weeks ahead.

A Better You PosterA Better You” is a new independent dramedy directed by Matt Walsh (HBO’s “Veep”) and co-written by him and Brain Huskey (“Childrens Hospital”).  Huskey stars as a hypnotherapist who’s so enamored by his own celebrity that he can’t seem to see his own life falling to pieces around him.  Also stars Erinn Hayes, Horatio Sans, Morgan Walsh, Matt Walsh and Andy Daly.

Premiers January 30th at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Spare Change posterSpare Change” is an indie comedy co-directed by my friends Jonathan Talbert and Arturo Guzman.  Jane (Lissa Lauria), along with her best friend Lily (Elyse Levesque), hatch a plan to feign homelessness and find different, creative ways to get money from strangers.  Also stars Curt Mega, Jordy Lucas, Neil Grayston, and Jim O’Heir.

Premiers February 14th as part of the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival

So excited and thrilled to a part of both of these fantastic indie films!

Chicago Sun-Times:  Childrens Hospital is “one of the funniest shows on TV.”  It’s nice to see my hometown paper get it right!

Last Thursday, Childrens Hospital received its second Emmy nomination, and this Thursday is the premier of the fifth season!  Set your DVRs for midnight July 25th on Cartoon Network where an extra layer of craziness gets thrown in when the hospital staff moves to an army base in Japan.

As I write this, I’m just past the middle of the season and I can’t wait for everyone to see these episodes and hear the score.  I don’t want to give too much away yet, but I think I’ve written a couple of the biggest cues of the series so far, as well as some of the funnest.

Hope you enjoy it!

UPDATE: I’ll be adding excerpts from the score as the season airs.  Look for them under the Music tab!
