Rafael Kapelinski has won over twenty-five international awards and been shortlisted for an Academy Award for his short film ‘Emily Cries’. ‘Butterfly Kisses’ is produced by Britain’s Blue Shadows Filmswith Merlin Merton producing and Greer Ellison writing the script. The film was originally developed through Film London’s Microwave scheme, with the support of BBC Films and Skill set.
Nathan Klein on composing the score – “Composing the score for ‘Butterfly Kisses’ was a brilliant experience because Rafael and the film’s producers were very interested in developing something sonically unique and narratively important. This kind of encouragement for a composer is invaluable, enabling you to push creative boundaries.
The choice to blend church organ and electronics was pivotal. It has a dramatic effect on the aesthetic of the film and viewer’s relationship with the central character Jake. I also had amazing support from Tom Bullen, the score’s recording and mix engineer, as well as organist Ed Whitehead.”
The album for ‘Butterfly Kisses’ will be available to pre-order from February 9th and available for streaming and to buy from a number of digital platforms including Amazon, Spotify and iTunes from February 11th 2017.
