The “Mountains in Motion” Filmmakers Part 2-Crossing the 180 #100

mimWow! We made it! 100 episodes! I’m excited to present part 2 of my interview with the “Mountains in Motion” film team as the 100th episode of Crossing the 180.

Today we have the filmmakers behind one of the most unique and breathtaking timelapse films I’ve seen–Mountains in Motion. Those filmmakers are the directors Doug Urquhart of UpThink Lab and Landscape photographer Paul Zizka; the writer Meghan Ward; and the composer Michael Wynne. In this episode we’ll cover details on the music composition, using music in film and video in general, resources where you can find original composers for your film, the writing process, and the pros and cons of producing such personal work. This is an interview that will inspire you as an artist, but will also give you valuable and practical information about the process and collaboration of filmmaking.

This show is co-produced by Dan Rollins of LiveWire Films. The music used in this week’s sponsor segments was “The Final Battle” graciously provided by Clocks and Clouds from their album “Life Beyond Reason.” Learn more about their unique fusion of classical music and rock instrumentals and They are a great source for indie filmmakers to get amazing and unique music for your productions.
