29: SHADOWS IN MY
Marco Beltrami has started working
on upcoming Danish WWII
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.”
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.

Marco Beltrami has been

Knife of Never Letting Go (the first book of his young adult

The script passed through several sets of
hands, notably Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind‘s Charlie
Kaufman. The plot, set in the aftermath of an apocalyptic
virus, follows Todd (Tom Holland) a young man who lives on a
quarantined planetary colony made up only of men. However,
after something terrible forces him to flee with his dog, he
encounters something he’s never seen before, a woman.
Consequently, Todd and his mysterious new companion, Viola
(Daisy Ridley), embark on a journey to discover the truth
behind their state of life... The movie also stars Mads
Mikkelsen, Cynthia Erivo, Nick Jonas and David Oyelowo.

minutes of original score composed by Brandon Roberts

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
