Working on LOVE ON REPEAT (previously titled Stuck Out of Love) was a little challenging since I had only two weeks to write and record the score. An ideal schedule would be 6-8weeks before delivery, but I was up for the challenge. Once I had the opening melody written, I blazed through.
After watching the locked cut, I was immediately inspired and wrote the main theme … which you can hear throughout in almost every cue. I started with the opening sequence to the film (“Love on Repeat”). I wanted to create a score that would be fun, energetic and quirky with a bit of emotion to it as Amber struggles through her re-living the same day over, and over again.
I enjoyed working on this score as I got to record myself playing live drums, mandolin and acoustic guitar.
This is also when I began using Pro Tools for scoring. Up until this time, (20+ years) I used Cakewalk’s Sonar for writing and recording. I would then mix and deliver everything in Pro Tools. From this moment on, I use Pro Tools for everything now. I like the fact I that I have a one-stop-shop rather than transferring from various software applications. My productivity has cut in half, which allows me more ease when I have tight deadlines, such as I did with this film!
