ASCAP's Film Music Friday
I was asked to write this piece for ASCAP’s column “Film Music Friday” about writing and recording the score to the new film “Admission,” with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd.
So I saw Stephen Trask, the composer of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, chilling at Park City. Ok, I’ve been running into a lot of celebrities on this trip, but I truly geeked out over this. The urge to run up to him and start singing this at the top of my lungs was incredibly strong, but I didn’t want him to think I was a crazy person and get creeped out.
I compromised by singing it under my breath as I walked past. Equally creepy?
Let’s add more Musical contributions to this song and remix it into a Tiny Film! :oD
Here is how you can contribute to this collaboration:
* VOCALISTS & MUSICIANS: Sing along to Stephen’s vocals or add additional layers of instruments over Stephen’s guitar.
* ANIMATORS: You can animate visuals together into a Short Film, including this Tiny Story artwork by mirtle.
* EDITORS & FILM MAKERS: Download resources from hitRECord and cut them together into a Short Film, or gather some actors together and make a Short Film.
