The Man at the Counter
Award winning short film
Director Brian McAllister wanted Jarkko Hietanen to score his narrative short film which had already been to another composer. The original score didn't sit in the background and support the story and narration transparently enough, so Jarkko was asked to write a new score that would consist of more underscore elements. The end result is a delicate and fine balance between minimal, drone-like and warm organic music and the constant voice-over narrating through the whole story.
