Good news on the music front. Legendary electronic producer Roland Clark has agreed to write original music for the film. His song “Song for Shelter” became the musical backbone of the film from the early days of editing, as it seemed to capture the soul of the film more than any other song we played around with. Poetic, gritty, and soulful, if you have not heard this track before, it is a classic. Fat Boy Slim did a good remix, which is what currently plays in the trailer on our site. Roland is a super cool guy, and really excited to see what he comes up with.

Mark Baechle is going to be our composer. Mark’s name was sent to me by Marcelo Zarvos, who is a friend from a few other films we have done together (Good Shepherd, You Don’t Know Jack.) Mark has worked with Marcelo a bunch and recently did some composing on Spider Man the musical with U2. Like everyone who has worked on Magic Men, he is a good dude and crazy talented. We might post some of his initial pieces in their rough state to see what people think.

After God knows how long (well, two years), on October 2nd, 2011 we officially picture locked. Ross Weinberg started editing back on Oct. 8th, 2009 in LA, going through the 350 hours of footage we shot. Ted had worked with Ross on a short film and both of us were impressed by his work and hired him after one phone call together. If I remember correctly, Ross looked at some of our footage and thought we had the next great competition doc. Quickly we realized there was much much more to our film.
