The mini-series Philip Gun P.I. is created, directed and produced by Allan Gutheim. As for the music, Allan is collaborating with his wife Maria. To give the right feeling of a private investigator living in the present, but inspired by the 1930s detectives, Allan and Maria chose to compose a mix of electronic music and traditional jazz music.
Philip Gun is a cool private investigator, walking around in trenchcoat and hat. In an unspecified city, Philip Gun and his assistant Lin Henri solve cases, some that even The National Security Agency can't handle. Allan and Maria themselves are playing these characters. A big part of the Philip Gun concept is the mix of thrill, humor, action and drama. Cinematic as well as musical.
The series core is the music, which sets the mood and enhances each scene. For every episode, about ten minutes each, new music was recorded, but with recurring themes. Of course, Philip Gun got his own musical theme. There are no dialogues, instead the plot is moved forward and explained by the main character's narrator voice.
