Golden Hour




Golden Hour is a 2016 animation short film produced and directed by Patricia Garcia. Through wonderful use of a lush and warm color palette, the film depicts the end of a summer day in the life of a few friends who gather vegetables during the evening golden hour. It is a beautiful, magical, and eerie odd to nature; and also a down-to-earth, folkish, and simple depiction of life’s little pleasures.

The score was written primarily for acoustic guitar solo, and features various accompanying instruments, such as a trio of nylon guitars, bass guitar, piano, celesta, light percussion (shakers, tambourines, crotales) and…whistling. All players were recorded live in Los Angeles.
