2. Andy Meets Prudence
3. The Date
Synopsis from the CD booklet:
"During the fall of 1993 I was approached by Jason Sperling to create a
musical score to his short film ADVENTUROUS ANDY. This score would be a
unique opportunity for a composer since the film was a silent film. The
main character, Andy, would be a Charlie Chaplin-type character whose screen
actions, emotions and physical comedic mishaps were to be limited to only
on-screen visual performances. All of the dialogue would be handled through
single-card dialogue cards, just like the original silent films. There
would also be no sound effects. The musical score would be the only sound
for the film. Rather than a traditional organ accompanying the film, the
musical score would be a full orchestral score.
ADVENTUROUS ANDY is a 2-chapter story that begins with a traditional
overture. In chapter one, BOY MEETS GIRL, Andy is smitten with the
beautiful Prudence. Like Chaplin, he is a bumbling fool but his heart longs
to be with Prudence. Chapter two, THE DATE, Andy finally musters the
courage to ask Prudence on a date. She accepts and the dinner-date ensues
complete with every comedic mishap imaginable. Despite the disastrous date,
Prudence falls for Andy."
