2020: AUGUST 29: SHADOWS IN MY EYES
Marco Beltrami has started working on upcoming Danish WWII drama SKYGGEN I MIT OJE (SHADOWS IN MY EYES) for director Ole Bornedal. The movie marks the 6th collaboration of the two following NIGHTWATCH (additional music), DEEP WATER, I AM DINA, THE SUBSTITUTE and 1864. Bornedal wrote his own screenplay based on true events from March 21st, 1945 when the British Royal Air Force was tasked with bombing the Shellhus; used as the Gestapo headquarters in the centre of Copenhagen. The raid had unexpected consequences, as some of the bombers accidentally targeted the local French school and more than 120 innocent civilians were killed, 86 of whom were children. As a result of the British victory, the Shellhus was entirely destroyed, 18 prisoners were freed and Nazi anti-resistance activities were disrupted. In a press release published by Miso Film, the director explained: “Shadows in My Eyes is about children. It’s seen through the eyes of children, from that perspective, and with the sense of wonder with which children must observe a grotesque world around them. It’s the story of innocence versus machines, of the child who falls victim to the horrors of coincidence.”

The movie was filmed largely in Czech Republic at the end of 2019 and in early 2020 (with some additional filming still required) and is currently scheduled for January 6th, 2022 release in Denmark by SF Studios. International distribution will be handled by Netflx with specific release date yet to be announced.

2020: March 20: MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM score released
MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM was just released digitally by Hollywood Records and is available to purchase from Amazon or iTunes. The album includes roughly 40 minutes of original score composed by Brandon Roberts and featuring vocal solos performed by Úyanga Bold (see also Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark). Here is a little quote from the soloist about the working process: "A joy working with series composer Brandon Roberts, creator Eliot Laurence and sound team to create the vocal sonic universe for Motherland. (The protagonists use vocal spells and songs to affect the world around them!) We recorded at Capital Records and Marco Beltrami's studio the vocal spell effects and special vocal music for the show (for example, there is a scene where my layered vocals are the voices of the characters joining together to call down rain while the sun is shining). Overall, a thoughtful creative team process defining how the spells and songs sound and work.
The brilliant Brandon wrote beautifully captivating music for the series, of course. It was a pleasure to sing (and throat sing, and sing like a wolf, ululate, and more) for him, including for his gorgeous opening main theme. We used and layered different voice colors to simulate various characters and vocal spells throughout the series. (Did I mention he is brilliant?)."

2020: March 17: MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM TVS
While there are still no released dates known for several upcoming projects, MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM TV series will finally premiere tomorrow on Free Form TV.
