(Vimeo)   Farker sells a song to a movie that features Peter Tork (of the Monkees) called "I Filmed Your Death". The producer found the song randomly on YouTube and it dominates the trailer   (vimeo.com) divider line 33

What a stupid song.   Blah

/movie looks good though

Stop filming my death, dick.

Also, neat song.
 
2013-10-25 07:38:41 PM
Can't be!  If it was a farker it would have been "I filmed you're death"....

Song was OK.  That movie looks boring and stupid as shiat.

Song's alright given the production quality. Movie looks like SLC Punk meets lame... I don't even know... I wanted to say b-movie horror but this is more like d-movie quality.

If it is the same editor that worked on the film who did the trailer then I don't think I'll be watching it.
 
2013-10-25 11:46:55 PM
I can't speak to the film, but I like your song a lot. Well done, man!

/hope you get royalties
//knows that's unlikely

Well, who has a farking trailer without giving any idea what the movie is about?  If you're going to do that, then the three minutes should be compelling, not random clips of people you don't know and can't care about making facial expressions.

The song was better than I expected it to be.  It had a good bass line, but kind of got repetitive fast.  I'm not sure about the movie.  Which one was Peter Tork?
 
2013-10-26 12:22:22 AM
Well, I liked it. I'd watch the movie and the song was pretty good too. But, how was subby able to sell a random song on YouTube to a third party?

at first i thought the trailer was a total piece of crap.  by the end, though, i found myself kinda wanting to see it.

Cash the check now!

The song was not too shabby - but definitely the best thing about that trailer.  Damn, the visuals were boring.

You granted them out-of-context trailer use?  Normally that is an increase in fee.

I liked the trailer, is what I would have said if the trailer was actually good

Nope. I suggested it. Why not, not like I make a living at my "art". Young film-maker likes a random song on YouTube, you encourage it.

About 1 minute in:

Song was groovy, the intro had a cool Pulp Fiction vibe to it. Movie looks like absolute Birdemic-level garbage.
 
2013-10-26 03:32:41 AM
yah, i'm inot sure i could watch that movie without a satellite cast-away and two robots making fun of it - but congrats all the same.
 
2013-10-26 03:45:43 AM
Well Peter looks, um, well preserved.
 
2013-10-26 04:03:12 AM
I can't wait to not see that.
 
2013-10-26 07:47:54 AM
Great OingoBoingo sound/feel. Really channeled Danny Elfman. Like it a lot. Let's hear more.
 
2013-10-26 08:37:36 AM
That's not what I expected a Peter Tork song to sound like, so good for him. I was expecting something with that goddamn piano.

Subby here. Thanks for the comments. More to come on the release of the new album later this year.
Here's a link to the whole tune, If you listen to it backwards it's just as long as forward!

Nice song, subby! I really liked the vibe and the retro type sound. I hope enjoy tremendous success!
 
2013-10-26 01:53:55 PM
That was horrible.  Not the song, it was pretty good with an 80s feel.  But that was the first time I have realized that it's possible to see 3 second clips of people without any sound at all and realize that their acting ability was on a par with that of Tommy Wiseau.
 
2013-10-26 02:05:33 PM
The movie has Lloyd Kaufman in it. That's a WIN.

I can appreciate the sentiment.  I make a nice living pushing music around film and TV projects and I'm usually (but not always) on the side of the musician.  I hope that:

- they did pay you something.  Even a token $200.  Even $50.  Young film makers have to appreciate that there is cost to everything and should not get in the habit of expecting free music

- there is a paperwork between you and production that outlines the scope of the agreement and their rights to use your intellectual property and recorded masters

- you are a member of a performance rights society (ASCAP, BMI or SESAC in the USA) so that if/when this film ever airs on TV or theatrically in foreign markets you will get (probably small, but ya never know) royalties that are owed to you.

- you have a copy of the cue sheet.

/I am still not your attorney or your agent, just a friend with good advice
 
2013-10-26 05:29:05 PM
Most of these are checked off. I do need to look into the ASCAP/BMI thing (never been an issue till now). Looking to sell more tunes? Contact me... Seriously, thanks for the advice.

He just found the song on YouTube while looking through music videos and messaged me. We talked a couple of days later and I liked his ideas. I saw the MST3K feel and worked out a deal.

I liked the song, good luck subby!  I always tell my kids, follow your passions and the money will come.

I'm old enough to have watched the Monkees when it first aired.  And I really like their music.
