BREAKING INTO HOLLYWOOD WITH A SELF-FUNDED SHORT FILM? IMPOSSIBLE!!
Lisa Chappell has kindly agreed to allow us to consider material from her debut solo album When Then Is Now for the soundtrack of ‘Be Careful…’
A copy of her CD is with the editor, Nic Smith, and we’ll try a few different tracks to see how they play under the images. I’m very excited about this idea as Lisa has an amazing voice and the idea of using one of her beautiful love songs as a sort of “siren song” (she plays a femme fatale, Fi) when she seduces our leading man is compelling.
But wait, there’s more!!
Now we’ve resolved the oustanding issues around the usage of Paul Kelly‘s song, Be Careful What You Pray For (see earlier post) I can announce that Lisa has agreed to perform lead vocals on this track, too!
This song was a major inspiration for the script. Getting our lead actress to sing it over the end credits would be truly awesome!
Watch for updates…
Paul Kelly’s original version is available on his Greatest Hits – Songs From the South Vol I & II, available at good stores everywhere (and even a few mediocre ones), including Amazon.com I can’t recommend this great double album highly enough.
Here’s a link where you can hear a sample of Be Careful What You Pray For – enjoy!
