Original soundtrack from the 2021 action comedy feature directed by A.J. Tesler, starring Chris Carpenter, Mira Sorvino and Sean Astin, produced by Lost Trail Productions and released by Blue Fox Entertainment (USA).
THE STORY: A teenage coding genius has just 30 days to create the world’s greatest video game or his family loses everything. No pressure.
THE SCORE: “The main message of Hero Mode is about the challenges we face in that experience of creating. And it really hit home for me. I could relate to having a high-stakes puzzle that needs solving and all that it takes to harness your creativity (and maybe even some sweat and tears) to make it happen. Not to mention, even if it is sometimes daunting, the creative process can still be a lot of fun! — I’m just proud to be a part of this film. I miss the cast and post-production crew already and am so grateful to have spent the time collaborating with all of them. On this album, I added that suite of some of those thematic ideas I was trying out as I began scoring the film. I thought that starting the album from the very beginning of my creative process (with a “demo suite” of ideas) would be perfect.” – Bill Brown
