BUGS: A TRILOGY
Acquired for international distribution in 2018 by Indie Rights Movies, BUGS is a feature about helplessness, paranoia, and the bugs that inspire us to scream.
Decay Mag says "...The background score...adds intensity and gives the viewer a rush of adrenaline. Whether it's the dramatic theatrical sounds or the soft eerie melody, the score prepares the viewer for what will happen. Even with this indicator, some scenes can't predict and deliver a shock."
Midnight Horror show says "...outstanding sound, music, and special effects departments...definitely used the budget for this film wisely, and it shows."
iHorror.com says “Composer Miriam Mayer has fitted the anthology with a score that perfectly adapts its musical style for each new segment. Musical tones shift from an avant-garde prckling that matches the first story’s stark aesthetics; to a slower, melancholic drone that reflects the declining state of the next segment’s main character.”
Premiering at the 2018 Academy Awards-qualifying L.A. Shorts Festival, the multi-award winning ESCALA is a film about a young violinist.
Based on the true story, ESCAPE premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018.
