ATP Tour | Thank you, Roger* 

Produced by Sift Creative

“When we were concepting this piece’s sound, we wanted something that could embody the elegance and passion that Roger Federer is known for.  Given that this was our way to say thank you to one of the greatest players ever to grace a tennis court, we wanted the viewer to feel the weight of his incredible 20+ year career. The tracks we ultimately chose were a perfect blend to help deliver those themes.” – Jordan Bolt

Directed by Karsten Winegeart

“I was actually shooting a music video for S.O., and he asked me what upcoming projects I was working on. I told him I was working on a new commercial for The Rock’s new Black Adam Project Rock Shoe. He stopped me mid-sentence and said, ‘I have the perfect track for you.’ He then went on to play me ‘Shaking the Globe,’ and I instantly knew it was the perfect song. It felt as if it was written specifically for this project, so it was a no-brainer to use this song.” – Karsten Winegeart

Official Selections: Branded Content 

Atlas Mercury Series | My Own Eyes 

Directed by Vanessa Vandy

“I was looking for a song that would help emphasize the different emotional beats of the story and glue the classroom scenes with the flashback sequence. Not only did ‘Visible’ by Why We Wonder do just that, but it also was very beautiful and helped enrich the story by adding its own flavor to it.” – Vanessa Vandy

The Face of Fear* 

Directed by Alex Ramsey

“I’ve been wanting to work with Gavin ever since I heard his work on ‘Hummingbirds in the Trenches’ many years ago. When I was looking for composers for ‘The Face of Fear,’ his range and cinematic sensibilities felt like a perfect fit for the project. In the end, he changed the shape of the entire project for the better by injecting a subtlety that allowed the storytelling to drive the film. He is a true musical genius.” – Alex Ramsey

Official Selections: Experimental 

Shed Some Light* 

Directed by I.M

“We started looking for an intense track that could elevate the raw emotions in the film. It is an abstract piece, and the music should go in that direction as well. We were immediately drawn to Cubby’s songs and used one of his tracks for a key moment on the first cuts. So, when Filmsupply connected us with him, it was very natural. He composed a whole piece for the entire film, and we had almost zero notes when the first version arrived—he pretty much nailed it. It was essential to have him on board, and he helped us convey all the nuances and emotions we wanted to provoke.” – I.M

Who Are You to Tell a Story? 

Created by Erica Hinck

“I really struggled to write the narration for this project. I was confused by what I was trying to communicate. No song felt quite right. So I kept changing out the music, hoping something would stick. It wasn’t until I found Jacob Montague, that I started to get excited. I immediately felt something when I first listened to this song—something haunting, something whimsical. It ultimately helped me write the rest of my script. I am now very obsessed with all of his music and can’t wait to use another one of his songs sometime soon. My highest regards to the many talented composers on Musicbed!” – Erica Hinck

Official Selections: Wedding Film 

Fairytale Wedding at Fairmont Banff Springs 

Created by Panemorfi Weddings

“The couple had a fairytale wedding in the mountains, and as soon as I heard this song, it evoked images of fairytales in my mind. The song has a sense of wonder and grandeur that the mountains also possess, creating harmony between the imagery and the music. I just knew it was the perfect song choice for this wedding, this location, and this couple.” – Panemorfi Weddings
