I also write music for films, under my full name Phil Vanderyken, and have had the privilege of working with some talented local filmmakers. Here’s a few samples.
“Distortion” directed by Andrew Bui
I scored Carl Johnson‘s entry for the 2014 New Orleans 48 Hour film fest, a silent sci fi short titled “Damascus”.
I helped put together the “house band” for this scene from The Victory Lounge, directed by Miceal O’Donnel. With Rick Szybowski piano, Mark LaMaire on upright bass, and Chris Owen on drums. Vocals by Elisabeth Erwin, back up vocals by Holly Ladnier and Rebecca Baras.
My first score was for Miceal O’Donnel’s short “the Capsule”.
