Cueing the Music: The importance of Movie Soundtracks with Sage Sweetwater, Shay Dillon and The Sundance Wives.
Films would be slow-moving and boring without the right placement of song and music. Music plays a prominent role in film, making it a worthwhile watching experience. A good soundtrack to a film will have major global distribution in chain stores and music stores.
Lyrics and background music compliment the dramatic scenes and heightens intensity. Sage Sweetwater cues royalty-free licensed music in certain scenes to bring those scenes out and up front for theatrical effect for the audience. Sweetwater films are no casual movies. They are High-Concept, High-Energy and quick-paced lesbian westerns and dramas. Nashville singer/songwriter Shay Dillon is writing and performing the songs in all of Sage Sweetwater films. Hoping our audience caught the new ABC series "Nashville" last night premiering to strong numbers. It airs on Wednesday nights. Connie Britton plays Rayna Jaymes, a seasoned country singer whose given 21 years to her recording label and is in the process of being pushed aside in favor of up-and-comer Juliette Barnes, played by Hayden Panettiere. True to life, Jaymes doesn’t take kindly to the gesture and leaves the recording label after it attempts to relegate her to opening-act status on the tour circuit—opening act for Barnes, to add insult to injury. “Nashville” is littered with side stories, each of which could easily slip into the driver’s seat, including Jaymes’ husband’s bid for mayor, Barnes’ sexually manipulative tendencies and Jaymes’ influential and dominating father Lamar Wyatt, played by Powers Boothe.
Controversial films and controversial music bring The Sundance Wives to their personal best. It's a wonderful, artistic experience.
