Paris en Couleurs, an √Čtude in Composing and Filmmaking

When you learn how to play piano, whether it’s classical, jazz, or any other genre, you learn by playing other music. In a way, I felt it was time to get back to basics and not only score music with familiarity, but also scrap my filmmaking rig down to its basics: a single lens, a camera, and no tripod. I guess I could have taken this furthur with a prime.

Films With The Great Highland Bagpipes

Growing up in the Kootenays as a musician was an amazing experience. As a bagpiper, I visited Japan several times, played in a miniature version of Britain and even played the GHP (Great Highland Bagpipes) on top of a mountain. Lately, I’ve been interested in exploring the idea of scoring music for other filmmakers and I wanted to carve out a slight niche for myself.

New composition: Echo Echo

So, recently I was writing some music and thought about another track I did a while back. I decided to use a similar technique on a piano solo.

About Pilot Bay Films

Welcome to the workspace of Pilot Bay Films. Born from long summer months fishing from a rock on the East Shore, to the long hikes in the Kootenay wilderness in search of lost and forgotten mines, these adventures have served as the inspiration for these films.

Equal part film, with equal part scoring, these films are here to tell a story and make you a part of this adventure.

What do we do? Planning / filming / editing / scoring... what ever it takes.
