Laurie Spiegel scores Electric Town

Posted in Uncategorized on July 28, 2014 by electrictownmovie

A few short months ago I thought the movie was about done, aside from a few small color tweaks. We’d done the best we could with a soundtrack, pieced together mostly from Creative Commons-licensed music and a few original odds and ends.

There had been one piece that I had really wanted to use by electronic music pioneer Laurie Spiegel, and I contacted her about using it. She agreed and encouraged the movie early on in the postproduction.

Imagine my surprise when I contacted her to show her the final movie and she liked it so much she said she wanted to work on (re)scoring the whole movie! I had actually already submitted to several festivals (including Sapporo, which just announced that Electric Town has been selected for screening). But I was happy to delay any future submissions to give her time to work on the movie.

Recently she sent me her finished score and I’m thrilled with it. She really managed to bring a lot more out of the movie than the previous soundtrack had been able to. I’m more excited than ever to submit to more festivals as soon as we finish the final mix.

Electric Town accepted to Sapporo International Short Film Festival!

The Sapporo International Short Film Festival and Market has just announced this years official selections for Japan and I’m pleased to report that Electric Town is on the list! (Sorry, Japanese only at the moment).

It’s exciting to have a screening, and hopefully it’s also a good sign that to have been accepted to the first festival we’ve submitted to. There are a few submissions out there yet that haven’t yet been announced.

It’s too early to tell if this will be the movie’s premier, but it would be a great environment to have the premier if it turns out to be.
