Are You My Mommy | Short | Gavin Michael Booth, Dir. | Dark Striped Dog Prod.
An action star in mortal danger is rescued by an unlikely saviour with ulterior motives.
A tricky balance was struck in this meta-action-comedy starring Paula Jean Hixon (Quantico, Far Cry Primal) and Neil Napier (Helix, Frontier, X-Men). The score had to play the action straight, but also switch between multiple perspectives in the film-within-a-film that asks, “who is the real hero of this story?”. I wrote huge, Marvel sized orchestral action cues as well as some comedic, funky heist numbers. This film was a hit at it’s premiere at Dances With Films in LA, and won several awards including Best Actress, Director, Editing, and Comedy Short at the Independent Short Awards.
