DOC NYC: Two Films Featuring Oovra Music
Breslin & Hamill: Deadline Artists
Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill defined an era of New York journalism in the late 20th century. They were swashbuckling liberal newspaper columnists who spoke for ordinary people and brought passion, wit, and literary merit to their brilliant reporting about their city and the larger nation.
Produced by HBO, this film features several great jazz pieces by composer Jordan Seigel, from our Real Jazz catalog.
Two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple chronicles the experiences of five refugee children from war-torn Syria and Iraq whose families have resettled in Canada. In this sweetly observed film, Kopple follows the boys for two weeks at a summer camp in the Canadian wilderness. We watch as some boys thrive while others struggle and the best intentions of the camp counselors are put to the test.
What You Need to Know About Using Music in Your Film
Oovra Music’s very own Joel Goodman moderated an in-depth panel about music in film at the IDA’s Getting Real ’18 documentary film conference last month. Big thanks to the panelists Vanessa Gould, Aaron Butler, and Brooke Wentz for sharing their experience and wisdom, and to all who attended. Looking forward to next year!
