Vikas Kohli
Indo-Canadian composer Vikas Kohli of FatLabs has two films gearing up for the festival circuit. 

Kohli wrote the score for Samuel Kiehoon's short film "Rattan," an homage to B-movies in which a bicycle basket anthropomorphizes into a possessed murderer. He also composed the music for Michelle Latimer's Toronto-based rapper documentary "Alias." "Rattan," which already picked up an award at the WorldFest Houston International Film Festival earlier this year, will screen in the short film program at Cannes this year. "Alias" will have its world premiere at the Toronto film Festival Hot Docs this Friday, April 26.

"Writing the music for 'Rattan' was really fun because we wanted to pay homage to classic horror movies without actually making the music cheesy and over-the-top," said Kohli, who has previously scored a number of short films. "Scoring for 'Alias' was different than any other project I worked on. From the outset, director Michelle Latimer and I discussed how what I composed needed to be subtle, nuanced," he added.

FatLabs is a Canadian audio production studio. Watch the trailers for "Rattan" and "Alias" below.
