Earlier this year, Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment were putting the finishing touches on their reimagining of the classic action thriller, Point Break. Almost every little detail of the film had been finished, but there was still one remaining item — a soundtrack. And if there is one thing any blockbuster film needs, it’s a killer soundtrack.
In keeping with the theme of reimagining this classic movie for a new generation, the producers turned to ReverbNation to find some great new music from our hugely talented artist base. And after more than 7,500 submissions, our Curation Team was able to help find the perfect fit — Oakland, CA’s Dig The Kid. Their song “Still Breathing” hit the perfect amount of anthemic and energetic that the film needed. Check out the song here:
From the artist:
Being chosen by ReverbNation and writing for the end title of Point Break wasn’t a fast process. We were picked up by Alcon Entertainment and Sleeping Giant Records (ASG) through ReverbNation. There were never any guarantees so we wrote the best we could to match the overall epic scope of the film. The team at ASG is incredibly driven and working with Michael Hodges and Ken Calliat, who produced the track, was a unique process. This was our first experience working with a string quartet and such a large production team in the studio. Once the song was finished and being considered for placement it was nerve-racking. We waited months before we found out it had been chosen. The day the song officially made it in the film, we discovered a new kind of momentum. All the struggle leading up to that moment was finally going to make everything worth while.
Already the song has landed another placement in the new Jeep Renegade commercial featuring scenes from Point Break, and an official Point Break featurette. Billboard Magazine recently published an article on their home page about us. ASG helped put together a radio campaign with Caroline Distribution and our music video, launching in the next few days, will be up on MovieTickets.com. These are just a few opportunities that have already come because of our affiliation with Point Break. With the help of Warner Bros, most of these goals were pushed through. The process is invigorating and exhausting at the same time, but we are more than grateful to everyone who has worked with us and given us this rare opportunity.
