I was lucky to work on bunch of things for this year’s Soundtrack film and music festival and thought I’d collate them here.
Y’know, for posterity’s sake.
To kick things off, Ellen Waddell and I made this intro film:
That’s her screaming and really playing bass and I’m the guy behind the cornet. My rusty tooting had to be replaced with more professional sounds though.
For the opening night screening of Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths, I got to interview its composer Carter Burwell via Skype. He’s most famous for his work with the Coens, Spike Jonze and manipulating the hearts of teenagers worldwide by scoring much of the Twilight Saga. Here he is, being very pleasant:
I may be a little biased, but my highlight of the festival was our Darkened Rooms presentation of Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest at Clwb Ifor Bach. Beatbox Fozzy performed live (and was spectacular), Eggsy from GLC introduced his short film, and director Michael Rapaport very kindly did this Skyped Q&A with me:
On the Saturday, I introduced Vincent Moon, who screened films from his Petites Planètes series and blew everyone’s minds at least a little bit. Here’s a sample of his work (much more can be found at vincentmoon.com):
Finally, I spoke to Craig Lapper from the BBFC about Samuel Fuller’s Shock Corridor, which had long been locked away from the public but is now fully rehabilitated and out in the world. The interview was recorded, so hopefully it’ll be available in podcast form soon.
