The_woodmans

I produced, recorded, and mixed the score and soundtrack for Scott Willis's film The Woodmans,which won the award for the Best NY Documentary at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival. The music was written by David Lang, performed by So Percussion, and released on Cantaloupe Music in November 2011. I recorded it in Clinton Recording's Studio A, and mixed in my studio on the David Smith console, when it was in Studio C at Clinton. Additional post for the soundtrack release was done at Good Child Music's studio in 2011.

"DAVID LANG'S SCORE FOR THE WOODMANS AT TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL" on CantaloupeMusic.com

From CantaloupeMusic.com:

The documentary, directed by C. Scott Willis, tells the story of one family's fall and redemption as they come to terms with their daughter's tragic suicide and their own deep scars that emerge as they reconcile this loss as a family of artists. After considerable personal angst and bouts of depression, their daughter, Francesca Woodman - a 22 year old visual arts prodigy, whose often nude, often obscured, and often disturbing self-photographs had won her international praise - committed suicide in January 1981. Her phenomenal career, which had begun when she was only 13 years old, had been aided by her father - a professional painter and professor of Art in Denver, her mother - a ceramicist whose own work had been exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, and her brother - a video artist and professor of Art in Cleveland.

Jim Browne, a programmer for the Tribeca Film Festival, briefly describes The Woodmans in the following way:

Through candid interviews with the family and a host of friends, the film explains how significant the importance of art-making has been to this family, and how the loss of Francesca changed their lives forever. Through the creative use of Francesca's journal entries, experimental videos, and dynamic photographs, director C. Scott Willis delves into the life of this young artist in a very intimate, visceral, and personal way. His debut feature documentary is an original and extraordinary work that plumbs the depths of what it truly means to be an artist.
