Always Shine

The official trailer for Sophia Takal’s latest feature Always Shine has been released!

“Takal turns every casual exchange into a lunge for dominance, and the movie keeps you flinching.” – TimeOut (10 Best Movies of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival)

“Takal’s movie succeeds from every angle: psychological thriller, classic two-hander, and a feminist exploration of women’s prescribed roles in Hollywood and beyond.” – The Playlist

Features an original score by Michael Montes.



Charles Bennett is a pioneer in the field of quantum information theory at IBM Research and an IBM Fellow. His work and breakthroughs have shaped our understanding of the relationship between physics and information processing, and contributed many of the basic building blocks that guide experimental work to build a universal quantum computer.

A universal quantum computer can be programmed to perform any computing task and will be exponentially faster than classical computers for a number of important applications for science and business.

Towards this goal, IBM is introducing a cloud-enabled quantum computing platform called the IBM Quantum Experience to let researchers, the scientific community and the public, learn about, and experiment with, a quantum computer to help discover new applications for this technology.

Wild Canaries

“Michael Montes’ bracing dub reggae-flavored score nicely enlivens the proceedings, often feeling like a latter-day Henry Mancini.” – Twitch Film

“The music, by Michael Montes, is a consistent source of exhilaration. Here, Levine further underscores his theatrical streak, summoning the muscle of Montes’s compositions at conveniently tense junctures, stamping each close call, jump scare, and bait-and-switch with exaggerated awareness. Elsewhere, the score proves appropriately whimsical, accompanying Barri with tip-toeing keys and jazzy percussion as she chases clues and dodges danger, pursuing the truth in the face of increasing peril for her and Noah’s friends.” – Reverse Shot

“…an inventive dub reggae score by Michael Montes.” – LA Times

“…Michael Montes’ delightfully brassy score…” – Variety
