Hi Cliff... just wondering how things are going. Are you still working on your film? I think you were going to try cutting a scene to one of my songs - Everybody Needs A Friend. Did it work out? So many questions :-) Happy New Year Cliff!! -Al
Hi Cliff... I just received this message on a Broadjam connect notice - "Hi, I wanted to see if we could use: need a friend for an Indy sci fi film." Is this from you? If so please get in touch and give me some details as I'd be happy to consider taking part.
yes we are doing a low budget sci fi film and this poor astronaut gets only a puppy to keep him company, I want to try your song while editing to see if it works and I can let you know.
Sounds good Cliff... go right ahead. -Al
Hi Chris... thanks for your request about Into Grey - in principle I have no problems with you using the song - I'd like a little more information about the film and what you have in mind in case (or when!) it turns into a rampant financial success! Email me to discuss further but accept this as a green light anyway - firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey Ian, Yes, this is based on a book I wrote, Wombs, you can check it out on Amazon, it will be on Kindle in a couple of weeks.
It is science fiction using minimalist technologies, the story is about our last hope of sending ships into space which actually birth the astronauts out there, and then they are to land and start a whole society. I am thinking to have your song in the center, when things are going rough for Jason Argenon, the main character, but there is a thin thread of hope.
You will have the song credit in the film and I will keep you up dated with its progress. If the film becomes huge the plays are paid to you for film, TV, RADIO etc. directly through ascap. Right now we are in editing and going to submit it to sundance and other festivals where our hopes are distribution and perhaps some attention.
I appreciate your consideration, I think your song will help the project one step further into being art.
If you would like to take part, I will check out more songs to see if there is another place. Its a feature film, so there is lots of room for great stuff as we edit it together.
I appreciate your music and think this will turn out really good with eveyone coming together like this. I look forward to placing your song in its spot, I found you last night and we all thing your voice and music will make help make this great!
Hi Cliff, sounds great to me - and I'll check out the book as well! Please go ahead. If there's anything else you would like to use help yourself. If you missing any music/songs that are needed to work with the film then let me know - it might be interesting to try writing something specific for you.
All the best, Ian
Cool, that would be great, I'll get into it with that in mind as well.
Take care, Cliff
Just wanted to let you know that we're re-mixing 'Into Grey' - the re-mix will remove some hiss and add a bass track. If you would like to send me your email address I'll send you the remixed track when it's all done.
You can email me at email@example.com
All the best
