“We Believe in Dinosaurs is a film about creationism, conflicting ideologies, and America’s troubled relationship with science. The score uses analog synthesizers, like the Moog Voyager, to symbolize modern science and technology, alongside delicate synth tones, strings, and live violin to underscore the sometimes heated emotions the film. We are living in a highly polarized moment in American politics and culture. This is a soundtrack to these times—exciting and fast-paced, yet challenging and conflicted. If you haven’t seen the film, I hope the music still reflects this underlying feeling,” says Kate Simko.

The composer worked closely with the director to bring the score to life: “Working with the director, Clayton Brown, on a second feature was a truly collaborative process that pushed me as a composer. Clayton’s vision is crystal clear and he understands the power of music in film. We communicated scene-by-scene about the emotions and deeper meaning to be reflected through the music.”

We Believe in Dinosaurs tells the story of the building of an enormous, $120 million Noah’s Ark at the Creation Museum in rural Williamstown, Kentucky, an exhibit designed to prove the Bible is scientifically and historically accurate. Along with detailing the Ark's preparation, the film follows several Kentuckians: Doug and his team of artists and designers who create lifelike animals; Dan, a geologist who blows the whistle on the Ark’s hiring practices; David, a former creationist and lifetime museum member who blogs critically about beliefs he once held; and atheist activist Jim Helton, co-founder of Tri-State Freethinkers, who leads a protest rally outside the Ark on opening day. As the citizens of Williamstown wait for the economic boon promised by the Ark’s founders, creationists spread the gospel of a 6,000 year-old Earth. We Believe in Dinosaurs explores the roots of our beliefs.
