Over the last few weeks I’ve been working closely with Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, all round wonder-woman, but most relevant to A Responsible Girl, an excellent composer.

Emilie and I worked previously on my short Not Now Pet a heightened reality Christmas comedy, which featured Guinea pigs, a water dragon and a grandfather who may or may not be Father Christmas. But that was some years ago and I’ve been hoping to work with her again if I got the chance.

As we’ve been cutting ARG, Miikka and I have been using a variety of temp tracks a lot of which we’re from artists on the Warp label. While these added a disturbing yet delicate atmosphere, one of Emilie’s first comments was that they felt very male and it’s true all the artists I’d chosen are men. Whilst the temp tracks were very beautiful, a “disturbing yet delicate atmosphere” is not quite enough to get us into the character of Rosemary and to align us with her predicaments, ARG needed a feminine essence to be carried through the film.

I’ll write a little more about the process of working with Emilie on the music in the future, but in the meanwhile. Have a look at her website and soundcloud.

Hey all,

We go into production on Monday morning for a three day shoot.

Updates to follow shortly.


Dear Readers,

My most sincere and abject apologies for having ignored you all for the past few weeks, I’ve been working away on the film and then I went off to Cannes. But now I’m back and ready for more work. I’ll get back to you with  more information, but in the meanwhile, here is a new draft of the script and some storyboards.


Hope you enjoy them
