Monsters of suburbia sound design



Music is expensive for movies, but that is not detering me from at least trying to get the "Linus and Lucy" theme from the Peanuts Halloween Special "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" (1966), written by Vince Guaraldi (Hogan Media & Music, Inc.). Also on the wishlist is a couple of verses of the "Monster Mash" (1962) as sung by Bobby "Boris" Pickett, and a minute or so of the opening credit theme to "Friday the 13th Part III in 3D" (1982) by Harry Manfredini.

Original Music


Producing a film is a great opportunity to collaborate with many artists. There is a nice dynamic added to a movie when musicians supply their craft, and I look forward to hearing scenes come to life with their talents, electric and bass guitars, keyboards, horns, drums, and electronic additions.



When I was a kid I used to listen to Halloween records that had awesome cover artwork, some containing nothing more than different scary sound-effects. When I write my shooting scripts, every sound-effect is put on the page, whether it is asphalt tearing rubber from a shoe, or a train in the distance. There will also be a "jungle" motif which will accentuate key moments.This soundscape will be particularly effective with the setting of Monsters of Suburbia on Halloween night!
