Placement Music Provides Music For Sundance Film Festival Movie "HITS", Directed By David Cross

Bookmark and Share

Placement Music, a company specializing in custom music for film, TV and advertising was chosen by Emmy Award-winning writer, actor and comedian, David Cross to provide four songs for his directorial debut, "HITS," a dark comedy exploring the nature of fame in 21st Century YouTube America, which recently debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.

"Music can make the difference between a good scene and a great scene. 'HITS' required a broad selection of musical styles so we engaged Placement Music because of their proven track record and access to a wide range of talent. I'm very happy with the results. I'd certainly use them again."

Working with Joel C. High of Creative Control Entertainment, the film's music supervisor, Placement Music secured: a re-record of Sara Bareilles' "Brave" by Songs of the Architect; an original composition from Jason T. Shannon and the team at Tunewelders; an original song by Mark Dannells and Chris Cox of the Placement Music creative team; and a catalog track by Decatur Redd, an independent Hip Hop artist from the AFFIX Music Catalog.

David Cross said, "Music can make the difference between a good scene and a great scene. 'HITS' required a broad selection of musical styles so we engaged Placement Music because of their proven track record and access to a wide range of talent. I'm very happy with the results. I'd certainly use them again."

"HITS" takes place in a small town in upstate New York, populated by people who trade in unrealistic expectations. It's a story in which fame, delusion, earnestness, and recklessness meet, shake hands, and disrupt the lives around them. (IMDB page www.imdb.com/title/tt3145220/)

Tammy Hurt, managing partner of Placement Music and member of The Recording Academy National Board of Trustees, said, "We were thrilled to have the opportunity to provide music for this film, and I am proud of the diverse Georgia-based artists we were able to assemble to contribute to 'HITS.' As an active member of the music business community here, I'm also humbled by the wealth of talent available in Georgia."
