An Overture to an Unscripted Movie was composed to pay homage to the orchestral scores written for Hollywood action/adventure films.  The Overture is in four sections:  The Hero, The Villain, The Love Theme, and The Fight.  Since the Overture was written for an unscripted movie, the composer encourages both performers and audience members to create their own movie plots. 

To write this composition, Mr. Royer drew on his extensive work as a freelance cellist in the Motion Picture and Television Industry in Los Angeles during the 1980’s.  Some of the films he worked on are:  Star Trek 3 and 4, Lethal Weapon, Footloose, Gremlins, Children of a Lesser God, and television shows such as Little House on the Prairie, Dallas, and Fantasy Island.  He had the opportunity to play under many of the top film composers including Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Maurice Jarre, Henry Mancini, and John Williams.
