Bruce Ashley behind the camera again, shooting the new SmartSet spot for Badger&Winters. With his fashion sense, we think he should be in front of the camera, but we’ll settle for these beautiful models while we await his big debut.
All of us here at Goodpenny are grateful today to have known and worked with Phil Ramone. Many of us attended his memorial this past weekend, and it was surreal and inspiring to see how many music legends genuinely loved him as a friend and mentor. Tony Bennett (pictured), Paul Simon, Billy Joel and many more iconic artists spoke and performed Saturday night at the Salvation Army performance space, and we think Phil would have really loved it. He left an indelible mark on the music, TV, and film industries, and we were so lucky to have shared such a memorable experience with him working on “Goodpenny Live.”
Coming soon - “A Girl and a Gun,” a documentary from Cathryne Czubek showcasing “the female perspective on an object whose history is deeply bound to men and masculinity.” It’s a fascinating and relevant film, and it was scored by our own Andrew Hollander. Check out the trailer and mark your calendars - the film opens in select theaters June 3.
Excited for the entire “A Girl and a Gun” family, including GP composer Andrew Hollander - Stephen Colbert tweeted about the film yesterday! It’s playing at the Montclair Film Festival this Saturday at 3:15, so stop by and check it out for yourself.
A fun spot GP’s Bruce Ashley recently edited was highlighted this week on SourceECreative.com! Check out one of the spots from the Verizon Wireless’ hilarious three-spot campaign, featuring comedian Paul Rodriguez.
Excited to announce that Goodpenny’s Andrew Hollander has signed on to score the upcoming feature, “Black Hat,” from writer/director Robbie Bryan. We’re going to have to wait until November to check out the part-anime, part-road movie, but from the looks of it, it will be worth the wait. In the meantime, stream the last movie Hollander scored, critically-acclaimed “Sleepwalk With Me,” on Netflix:
In case you guys missed this a couple of weeks ago, check out Jimmy Fallon, Blake Shelton, and Nick Offerman as “The Chickeneers.” Per usual, GP’s Lawrence Manchester recorded and mixed this comedy magic and helped make it all the more hilarious.
