Aaron has recently completed the score for DOWNEAST.
A story of love, loss, and redemption - Downeast dives into the often ignored seedy underbelly of Maine and follows Emma Maddox as she returns to her hometown years following the mysterious death of her brother, Mikey. As she reconnects with his best friend Tommy, the two rekindle their flame and Emma begins to uncover the web of lies the town has been keeping. Will Emma get the closure she so desperately seeks, or fall victim to the town’s turbulent ways? The film combines crime, revenge and most importantly, the hope for a new life.
Aaron composed and recorded the score for the documentary Alice Is Still Dead.
In an intimate and unflinching examination of dealing with grief, “Alice Is Still Dead” tells the story of a murdered loved one through the perspective of the victim’s family. From getting the news to facing the killer in court, the viewer gets an in-depth look at the pain and heartbreak a family must endure while fighting through a nightmare. The filmmaker, and brother of the late Alice Stevens, ultimately asks, is it even possible to move forward after such a traumatic event?
