Contractor’s Routine has added scenes since its festival showing in April. Tom Sizemore has been added to the cast. The new cut is nearly finished, and I’ve scored a new trailer for the film My favorite line is the opening one: “It’s not enough to be a genius…to be a genius you have to practice.”
This trailer music is a very amped-up version of the music actually in the film. I use parallel minor and major chords in the first section, then move to common-tone chord modulations. The final chord of the trailer is a “major-minor” chord, meaning that it has both the major and minor third sounding simultaneously. For the trailer, I added lots of rhythm and lots of drama to try and tell the film’s story in under 2 minutes.
