FOR PAPA

A little radish sets out on a harrowing adventure to find a magical deer with healing powers, but runs into creepy crawlies and spooky creatures along the way! Will he finally find the mystical buck on his bumpy journey?

FOR Papa SOUNDTRACK  

This piano and guitar-based score is reminiscent of American acoustic folk music in its harmony and simplicity - I wanted to create a rustic, natural, nostalgic feeling, as the animation takes place in a forest with no paved roads and warm dappled sunshine. No big orchestra or synth overlay; just an acoustic duet fit for a whimsical young radish in the woods! Full short film.
