The money raised by The Drift has been donated to the RAF Waddington Charities Fund. Thanks to everyone has taken part in the project, and everyone that has bought DVDs, posters and watched online! Making the movie a success was a huge achievement in itself, but it’s great to see money going to good causes as a result, too.
You can read about it in the Lincolnshire Echo.
Speaking on behalf of the charities committee, Flight Lieutenant Guy Roscoe said: “We are delighted to accept an out of this world £1,000 donation from Squadron Leader Darren Scales and his Movie The Drift.”

The Soundtrack Geek has reviewed The Drift’s score. And it’s a fantastic review!
Here’s a taste:
It is a very dark affair, dark as space itself. It’s a horror sci-fi so I expected nothing else. Opening Sequence “Darkwave” starts with a deep and dark synth, the dark brass sound is pushing forward and so I’m surprised when a beautiful piano motif starts playing at 0:24. It’s minimalistic and beautiful. When the flute hits at 0:50 I get goosebumps. This is really great stuff, both atmospheric and melodic. Strings starts playing and it’s all good, but where’s the terror? In the middle, around 2:20, the brass is back and it is building up very slowly and it hits some quite heroic strings accompanied by the reverberating piano. This is gorgeous. Love it.
