DIRECTED BY DAVE TYNAN - 2007
Teddy Bear is a wonderfully minimal film examining the fragility of youthful romance. Much of the film relies on open space and silence to bring us as close to our characters as possible.
The musical piece that plays out over the conclusion of the film was the result of hours of trying to find the perfect dark timbre to punctuate the pain felt by our young, naive and heartbroken lead. I wanted to make sure the chordal progression didnt interfere too much with the performance of the actor and her telltale eyes, but that it left us feeling the same pain that she felt.
This piece is part of a larger musical piece which I have titled, 'the Hakkoda Ship'.
