We Were Pirates Score Doc Film "Dear Mr. Watterson"

We Were Pirates Score Doc Film "Dear Mr. Watterson"


What began originally as an offer to provide music for a documentary about an influence from childhood (Calvin & Hobbes) eventually turned into We Were Pirates' full length score for Dear Mr. Watterson. Mike Boggs of WWP originally contacted the film's director, Joel Schroeder, about allowing the documentary to use some of his music. Over two years later, Schroeder reached out to Boggs about making the score for the entire film.

To be completely honest, I absolutely love this score. It is a vivid tapestry of piano riffs, jazzy percussion, and delightful melodies that remind me of the first time I heard Vince Guaraldi's score for Charlie Brown.

The soundtrack is available for purchase from iTunes now, and is also available for streaming from SoundCloud (But seriously, you should really buy it). -Karl Dobias
