We joined forces with Steve Spiro from Felt Music to place and clear all the music in Everyday Street.
“Everybody Street” illuminates the lives and work of New York’s iconic street photographers and the incomparable city that has inspired them for decades. The documentary pays tribute to the spirit of street photography through a cinematic exploration of New York City, and captures the visceral rush, singular perseverance and at times immediate danger customary to these artists.
A trailer of the film can be seen here:
Bozas International worked closely with Felt Music to help deliver the music element for this film. The director Cheryl Dunn had high ambitions for her film and made the assumption that because it was about ‘cool New York’ that a lot of New York artists would license there music into the film. But, like most directors, she was not aware of some of the complex contractual arrangements that a lot of artists have entered into over the years which makes clearing rights a bit of a mine field.
We worked out a plan with the CEO of Hello Films and Cheryl hereby we would clear as much as we could off her wishlist and anything we could not clear we would find a suitable replacement for. In order to make sure we could clear tracks and make a low budget film attractive to the various parties concerned we structured a deal that gave all the parties an interesting back end and we are delighted to say that many of the people on the wish-list took up the offer.
We were fortunate enough to secure tracks from Nicholas Jaar, Gang Gang Dance, Tom Verlaine, the Beastie Boys, Sonik Youth and Endless Boogie to name but a few.
We were really happy to have delivered a vast majority of the director’s musical choices and Felt Music did a great job in plugging the gaps which means we retained the ‘new York feel’ of the soundtrack and helped Cheryl put together a great movie.
Job well done :)!
