In a matter of hours on Friday, Typhoon Haiyan completely devastated parts of the central Philippines. It was one of the strongest storms ever recorded. The death toll is estimated up to 10,000 with hundreds of thousands more displaced. The country has declared a “state of calamity.”
So in honor of Don Jon opening tomorrow, here’s a little video that Joe shot in the REC room after a long day of recording the score. It was late at night and Jonny Rodgers had finished his guitar parts for the movie when we grabbed a couple acoustic guitars and recorded an impromptu version of my theme for the film. Joe caught it on tape and we present it now for your visual and auditory pleasure. The actual score sounds drastically different, but this piece ended up closing out the credits so you’ll hear it if you stay ‘til the end:)
One day we wen’t to the largest (volume) building on Earth in Chengdu aptly named the “global centre’. It proportions were astronomic, it took almost 40 minutes to walk around. Inside there is the worlds largest beach, pool and flume park. Suffice to say we spent a good few hours flying down the slides. #Chengdu #China
I usually listen to/watch Mark Kermode’s film blog pretty religiously and was very pleased to hear a blogger’s praise for the Brick score whilst discussing music in film. It’s near the end of the clip.
Back at it, and it feels wicked! Just finished an amazing shoot with such an incredible group. Keep an eye out for the final images. #artisticcollaboration #newhaven #hairstyling #makeup #b.johnson.studio #photoshoots @bybirdie @mistinamarie @masha (at New Haven)
