The Thin Time

A film by J.R. Hughto.


Cid Benengeli is in jail and he doesn’t know why. All the Prison Director wants is a confession of everything bad Cid’s ever done, preferably in a light, airy prose style. Find the last novel of a disappeared playwright — that was the job they’d hired Cid for and it was the manuscript that had gotten him into this mess. Sure, Cid knew where the writer was, and had found the book, too, but why did everyone want it? And why is he now sitting in jail writing the same damned book?

I did the sound design, sound edit and mix for this narrative feature.  The project was a close collaboration with Hughto and involved many layers of recording and processing of samples to create unique sound environments for the two world that the main character occupies. I worked closely with the musicians in both recording and editing to craft an original score for the film as well.
