Celebrate Brooklyn! presents BOTSW OST LIVE!

The music of Beasts lives on thanks to our friends at Celebrate Brooklyn! They've invited co-composers Benh Zeitlin, Dan Romer and the Wordless Music Orchestra to perform the Beasts score LIVE against a music-less edit of the film. It's all happening this summer, August, 8th at the Prospect Park Bandshell and is free to all. We're hoping to press more copies of the vinyl in time for the event, so stay tuned for more info!

Until then, please join, invite and share our Facebook Event here.

And to hold you over, check out this live performance of "Once There Was A Hushpuppy"!

The Creators Project on Beasts

The Creators Project produced a series of in depth videos on Beasts of the Southern Wild including featurettes on the Aurochs, cinematography and soundtrack. While you can find them posted throughout our blog, we thought it would be nice to view them all on one page/post. Enjoy! MAKING OF BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD PART I

Beasts of the Southern Wild at the White House!

On Wednesday, February 13th, the cast and crew of Beasts of the Southern Wild including Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, and Benh Zeitlin, were invited by the First Lady Michelle Obama to screen the film and participate in a talk back with 80 students from the Washington, D.C. and New Orleans area. We can't begin to describe what an honor it was to not only receive the invitation but to be able to participate in a conversation about the film with the First Lady and all the students. Luckily, the day was caught on tape and immortalized on YouTube for all to view.

Michelle Obama on Beasts:

"It's a movie that makes us all think deeply about the people we love in our lives who make us who we are. It shows us the strength of our communities, no matter what they look like. It shows us that those communities can give us the power to overcome any kind of obstacles. And it also tells a compelling story of poverty and devastation, but also of hope and love in the midst of some great challenges."
