FROM PARTS UNKNOWN (2014)
Daniel Armstrong of Strongman Pictures, who produces and directs KidCrusher’s music videos, such as; Meet The Monstors, The Naughty List, Heavily Medicated & The short film for Metal Murder 3D “Alice In Zombieland” reached out to KC to compose anoriginal cinematic score for one of hisfeature films that has been in production for several years under the name “From Parts Unknown: Fight Like A Girl” The story of an ordinary girl who dreams of becoming a professional wrestler but has to save the world from the evil face-eating minions of a Corporation X instead. Starring Jenna Dwyer and filmed in Melbourne Australia, the film was put on the shelf for several years seeking a distribution which is going forward in 2014. KC began the cinematic score for the film late 2012 and completed a rough draft mid 2013, the film was then heavily edited early 2014 which led KC to almost completely re-scorethe entire film, including adding sound effects such as (Guns, Guts, Zombie Growls, Fight Impacts etc,) and also Including a special voice cameo by KidCrusher as the Radio Host to a clock alarm in one scene. KC Quoted “I’ve always dreamed about scoring a film, as I’ve been a big fan of Danny Elfman‘s work and the soundtracks to films in general, I’ve done several video comedy voice dubs in the past for fun but I never thought I’d see the day that I’d be doing it professionally and I never actually knew much about how to do it either, so I studied and worked with several sound packs and virtual instruments to create the right sound for this movie… Now you may think this would mean I would take this film into a hip-hop/metal twist just because that’s KidCrusher, but I dove more into a sound that I thought worked for this film… I believe the sound I composed is somewhat on the level of films today, but I couldn’t have done it without the help of the virtual instruments, as you know, it’s not like I have a sympathy orchestra in my backyard mate.” All though KidCrusher does not compose the theme song for the movie, which was composed by the multi-talented star of the film Jenna Dwyer entitled “Fight Like A Girl“, several other rock bands make appearances throughout the film such as; The Righteous Kind and many more. A release date for the film is yet to be announced later this year.
