Oops I did it again ;-)

Post by matto » Tue Aug 14, 2007 11:28 am

Hey gang,This past weekend marked the second time I had a piece of music in a movie that opened at number one at the box office (the previous one was Mr and Mrs Smith).I had a little custom background cue in Rush Hour 3, in a gambling scene at a club in Paris. I didn't get screen credit this time, but I'm still very excited because the music was actually fairly audible, which isn't always the case for library music uses in major Hollywood pictures.What's even cooler, in the beginning they showed a preview for yet another movie I have song in .Keep on writing everybody! matto

That's awesome news...it's gotta feel good to be part of such a big-ticket (and super cool) project.Question about your terminology: You say your cut was custom, but also that it was part of a library...can it be both?Andre
