Amy Lee is best known as the lead singer of Grammy Award-winning band Evanescence, but lately she’s been focusing her talents elsewhere: film score composing.
Over the summer, director Sean Robinson came to Carriage House Studios with Grammy nominees Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer to record a 5.1 surround sound mix of the score the two had composed with Lee for “Indigo Grey: The Passage,” the story of a young boy who unlocks an alternate reality through the eyes of a gas mask. The short film seamlessly blends science fiction, dance and martial arts, brought to life through the hauntingly beautiful score created by Lee, Eggar and Palmer and mixed by Carriage House engineer Brendan Muldowney. It was directed by award-winning filmmaker Sean Robinson and written and produced by Hammerstep founders Garrett Coleman and Jason Oremus.
At seven minutes long, “Indigo Grey: The Passage” has been getting a lot of attention. After premiering at the 2015 Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, it’s already been selected to screen at 14 international film festivals. Luckily, though, you don’t have to travel far to get a glimpse of the award-winning short film. “Indigo Grey: The Passage” can be watched here in its entirety on YouTube.
“Indigo Grey: The Passage” is based on Hammerstep’s immersive, live show concept “Indigo Grey,” set to open in 2016 in New York City. Look to www.hammerstep.com for more information.
