Since I spend a lot of my free time daydreaming of film scores to imaginary films, I thought I'd try and put this useless hobby to good use and pretend to be a music soundtrack supervisor.
So, The Playlist (the name of my Ipod; myself) have decided to make scores/soundtracks to imaginary films from existing filmmakers. In honor of the upcoming "Marie Antoinette" film, I decided to choose Sofia Coppola's as my first subject.
The premise of the series is this: Choose a filmmaker known for their soundtracks and pick songs that I subjectively think might appear/would be perfect in one of their films. The selection process sometimes consists of a) artists already used in previous soundtracks/artists the filmmaker is historically fond of, b) songs i think that fit the vein of the tone and mood of their previous films.
I had a lot of fun working on this pet project so I figured people might want to hear it. I'm sure some music aficionados would argue or have their own opinions and in such cases i encourage them to create their own soundtrack mix.
Each month (or sooner depending on how busy/lazy i get). A new filmmaker will be chosen and a new series mailed out to you all. Feel free to suggest any filmmakers, but many of the usual suspects are already in the works. All the volumes I have ever made will always reside here.
