Getting close to finishing Source Code now… Hopefully we are doing the last chunk of ADR with Jake today. Effects keep rolling in.

Soon, all that will remain is the recording of the Source Code score, which, as you may recall, will see Duncan re-united with the writer of the incredible MOON soundtrack, Clint Mansell.

March 2011 release is getting closer 🙂
