LA-based music company Visual Music recently scored a high-profile film short sponsored by Canon, which demonstrates it’s new Cinema EOS C300 series cameras.
“Sword” was directed by Felix Alcalá and Larry Carroll for executive producers Patti and Dave Coulter‘s Passport Films. Visual Music’s creative director Tom Seufert coordinated and produced the music with Emmy Award-winning composer Dean Grinsfelder, Devon Seufert and his Dubstep project Propellant. “Sword” is one of four films that screened at Paramount Studios in November as part of Canon’s Cinema EOS launch event.
“Sword” is set in a future where guns have been outlawed and human rights have been trampled upon by an authoritative militia. Grinsfelder handled the orchestral duties, incorporating his own electronica and overdubs from Devon, who also contributed two underscore cues. The score contains a remixed version of Propellant’s song “Lost,” which is also featured in the closing credits. Devon composed and produced “Lost,” with lyrics and vocal performances by Morgan Lyon and D’Cipher (C. McDaniel).
Other recently completed Visual Music projects include Kohler, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Dollar General, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Chrysler SRT, The Atlanta Lottery and P&G (Tide).
