TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
The 5th Annual Fans of Film Music Celebration is now taking seat requests!
We are going to be on an actual SOUND STAGE! Have you ever wanted to go on an actual sound stage where they actually RECORD all the music we buy? This year you get that chance! The Bridge Recording Facility in Glendale is opening their doors to us. Many shows have had some of their music recorded there like: Bear McCreary’s THE CAPE, the 500th episode of THE SIMPSONS by Alf Clausen, Mark Isham’s ONCE UPON A TIME, Ramin Djawadi’s PERSON OF INTEREST, DEXTER by Daniel Licht, AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD by Bear McCreary, REVENGE by iZler and Gustavo Borner, BLACK SAILS by Bear McCreary, HAWAII 5-0 by Brian Tyler, RESURRECTION by Blake Neely, CRAZY STUPID LOVE by Christophe Beck, SOURCE CODE by Chris Bacon, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS by Henry Jackman, THE BOURNE LEGACY by James Newton Howard, HIGH GROUND by Chris Bacon, THE JERSEY BOYS by Clint Eastwood, A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST by Joel McNeely and many many more.
Friday August 29th, Henry and Nancy Stanny are pleased to once again invite FFM attendees to their home on Friday evening , which coincidentally is a celebration of Henry's birthday, with it's theme honoring 10 years of the Golden State Pops Orchestra. Henry & Nancy will be providing food and drinks, so come join the celebration! This will be a great place to unwind and relax after flying in from where ever you came from!
Saturday August 30th, there will be two panels with around seven or eight composers on each panel. Following that, we’ll again have an autograph signing with the composers. You will have the ability to get over 40 NEW autographs. The list of composers we have on board right now are: Alf Clausen, Nathan Furst, Chris Bacon, Abel Korzeniowski, Geoff Zanelli, Brian Reitzell, Hummie Mann, Richard Band, Mark Isham, Aaron Zigman and Blake Neely. More will be announced as we get closer. Many composers can’t commit until we are closer to the date as they are super busy creating more great music for us all to enjoy! Our excellent hosts this year will be SUPER agent, Richard Kraft from Kraft & Engel Management and the host of On The Score at FilmMusicMag.com, Daniel Schweiger.
We will have a multitude of raffle items from various composers like Danny Elfman, Bill Conti, Laurence Rosenthal, Edwin Wendler, Nathan Furst, John Ottman, Bear McCreary and possible a few more goodies!
Varèse Sarabande Records is helping us celebrate our 5th Anniversary by giving one lucky winner a year FREE of Club Discs! From August 30th 2014 through August 30th 2015, ONE lucky winner will receive one copy of EVERY single Club Disc that is released. At this point, we have NO idea how many great releases Robert Townson has in store for us, but whatever he gets out to us all, you will receive ONE free copy. This cannot be transferred to another person during that one year. Shipping IS included as well!
David Newman is again donating backstage passes to FFM5 with ALL proceeds going to The American Youth Symphony, http://aysymphony.org. Four lucky winners will follow me backstage after his August 31st concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which is called The Big Picture: Hitchcock! Winning a backstage pass gets you backstage ONLY. You still need to buy your ticket that gets you into the actual concert. Raffle tickets for this will cost $5.00 per ticket. So, if you spend $20.00, you’ll get four tickets/four chances of winning a backstage pass. If you spend $10, you’ll get two tickets/chances to win a backstage pass.
I am also looking at creating a commemorative program, which each guest will receive.
We will also have wonderful goodie bags donated by the great guys at La-La Land Records. We will also have a few goodies from other labels as well. Still working out all those details!
Sunday, August 31st, Creature Features and The Fans of Film Music Society are coming together to give you even MORE composers! We’ll have another great composer signing at their store in Burbank that will be open to anyone and everyone. Details of that event, composers, online orders etc. are still being finalized. We are tentatively looking at a 1-3 time frame, which will still give all of you plenty of time to have dinner and get to David Newman’s concert at the Bowl if you are attending.
I have not planned anything for Monday September 1st, but if folks are still in town and you want me to arrange a lunch or something, I can pick a spot where we can all relax and talk about the fun weekend we just had. Give me feedback on that!
The cost of the Saturday event with 15 or so composers, over 40 new autographs and a catered lunch is $30. ALL proceeds go into putting this massive event on. Seating has been limited in the past and this year, we have fewer seats because of the space at The Bridge Recording Studio in Glendale. If you want to attend, I cannot stress enough, EMAIL ME ASAP.
