Today I received a new soundtrack and mix for the film Johnny Rocket in Garage Space and I am thrilled with it. My original concept was to use an old song called Rocket 88, but was never able to obtain the rights to the song, so I contacted the talented composer Keith Waggoner of Grey Coals Music For Film. Keith and his partner Josh Caldwell created a soundtrack that compliments the video perfectly.
I think it is exciting to work with musicians because it helps me to be a better storyteller by trying to communicate with an artist who works in another medium. It is easy for me to communicate visually, but I recognize that sometimes when a person works in a sonic medium, the ideas don’t always translate. Working with Keith was effortless and I think the soundtrack matches the aesthetic of the film nicely.
