From the beginning it was clear to both director Nadine and myself that it was going to be a very contemporary indie / pop score. Unlike my usual hybrid scores combining orchestra with contemporary elements, there was not a single orchestral instrument in sight. The entire score was done with electric guitars, acoustic guitars, keyboards, drum kits, loops and synths. While still a fun high school comedy, Nadine had brought out deep character portrayals from the actors. A large aspect of my scoring was to help the audience care about the characters and their issues, while still bringing out the humour in many of the scenes.
