Submissions now through July 20th
The producers for the widely talked about Michigan-made feature film, Annabelle & Bear, are pleased to announce an original music competition for a chance to be featured on the film’s soundtrack. The film will be shot locally and around the state of Michigan and, get this, it¹s also a 100% pure Michigan cast and crew. And to top it all off, an all-Michigan soundtrack with one lucky band or musician winning a cameo in the film.
The producers are only looking for original music that is owned exclusively by the band or Musician for this competition. Please do not submit music or songs that you do not have exclusive ownership of. Send us anything and everything you have that fits the emotional tone of the film.
The producers are looking for original local Rock compositions to use in the soundtrack. Stylistically, the prospective music should be in a Classic Rock vein- (ie: Seger, Springsteen, Clapton, Steve Miller Band) ranging from ballads to full out jams, lyrical AND instrumental. The prospective submissions can be melancholic, tying lyrically to the film’s emotional arcs, such as a disconnected and lost soul, a wounded spirit, an innocent love, love that heals, believing in someone, being saved by love. While not having to be specifically written about the narrative, the overall feeling of the song should be emotional.
The producers are also looking for a single thematic piece of music to use throughout the movie. We would like simple, emotional acoustic melodies (ie: Brokeback Mountain) that we could build on during transitions and montages, as well as original songs that help capture the film’s story of love and redemption.
Selected pieces will be posted on the www.annabelleandbear.com website for visitors to vote for their favorite piece of music. Many pieces will be selected by the producers for the soundtrack, and one lucky band or musician with the most votes, will win a cameo in the movie.
Competition begins on Wednesday, June 24th, 2009, (10:00am) and ends Monday, July 27th, 2009 (6:00pm)
All entries must be received by 5 PM, July 20th, 2009.
