The first trailer for the international Feature Film “Fear of the Woods” was just released. I have composed all the music for the feature but not the trailer.
What a year this have been, and much more will happen 2019 as it seems. Here are some of the highlights of the year as a Composer, Film Producer and other activities.
Some of you might already know that I have produced a documentary about the Swedish artist Moneybrother (Anders Wendin), the Swedish director Titus Paar and the Swedish org. Ankarstiftelsen. The Foundation (Ankarstiftelsen) build schools in South America and help the poor and those in need. This great Project resulted in a feature documentary directed by Titus Paar, edited by Lars Gustafsson (in Austin Texas). The DoP Bratislav Stankovic captured some great fotage in the jungle and in Colombia overall.
This is a really emotional and warm film that I am proud of being a part of.
I also composed the Music to the film, together with Moneybrother.
The first Review (in Swedish) came out today (4/5) after the great first screening were 350 people gave a standing ovation afterwards.
Distribution awaits and several distributors and TV stations are showing interest. HXP Production in collaboration with PAAR Production.
As I produce more and more films I could not say no to the wonderful documentary were a camera crew led by director Titus Paar traveled to Colombia. Together with the my hand picked crew came Anders Wendin aka Moneybrother. In collaboration with HXP Films, Ankarstiftelsen (who build schools in Colombia) and Moneybrother we asked people to donate soccer shoes and sports wear. So after a short stop in Bogota were the team and Moneybrother gave away shoes and clothing to poor kids they traveled to the jungle. Very few camera teams have met with the Kogi tribe and our team ventured far into the jungle and to places no team (as we know of) have been shooting.
Now, we are in the post production part and as soon as I am finished with Black Lake season 2 I will score the documentary together with Moneybrother’s songs. It will be a blast!
What a year it has been for Simon Kölle!
It all began with finishing the last couple of cues for Vilsen (Ave Mater), making some additional music for the short Gola Inte, making some music to a roleplaying game, a logo and making the music for a computer game.
After doing a commercial Simon finished the music to the, later on, several award winning short “Legend of Dark Rider: The begining”, who became a hit. Composing for yet another commercial – this time Grabber screws and then start working on a app game called Conduct This! A game that’s now a huge hit and on the toplists in many countries. Simon revisited the game many month’s later to make even more music.
Then Simon finally made his Hollywood debut compsoing the music for The Perfect Weapon (2016) directed by Titus Paar who also directed Legend of Dark Rider: The Begining. Right after that Simon made some improvational music fot the Event/LARP The Solution were the participants listened to the music nonstop for 48 hours.
Simon helped his friends Pixelbeast at The Game Assembly out with composing the music to their examination computer game Zvonar.
Simon produced and composed the music for the short film #Ingenskitiminkropp which is a film about doping in martial arts. The film will be released early 2017. Director Richard Jarnhed co produced and directed the film.
Late in the summer, Simon started to compose music for americal trailers together with director Rasmus Tirzitis. A total of 6 trailers were done during the autumn. Simon also founded the trailer music group called STK Group.
Simon composed the music for two commercials for the company BEX with Titus Paar as the director.
Simon started working with Paradox Interactive on a small project that could lead to more. Director/editor Rasmus Tirzitis created the final trailer for Vilsen (Ave Mater) and Simon composed the music.
Director/writer Richard Jarnhed created 4 event films for Hotell Kung Carl and Simon both composed the music and worked with sound design on the project.
In November and December Simon, together with Joel Forssell, composed the music for Vitt Skräp (White Trash) yet again but this time with a different sound and approach. As some small changes are left to do early 2017 it will be counted as a 2017 production.
Writing and Producing
Together with long time friend Richard Jarnhed they founded the platform Tulpa Creatives which will work in many constellations and with different projects. The first Tulpa Creatives projects were the Hotel-films and the drama documentary #Ingenskitiminkropp.
Tulpa Creatives have during some time now developed a TV Series (with Henrik Summanen and Joel Forssell) and late in december Simon and Richard started yet another project together with actor and executive producer Mattias Lundberg. The two projects differ a lot in both style and scope. More information will come on www.tulpa.nu
Simon was also one of the producers of Vilsen (Ave Mater) and was responsible for making a distribution deal and much more.
Last but not least Simon kept on writing for martial arts on www.fightermag.se and worked as sports commentator.
Several interesting projects are about to take form. Simon will early in 2017 compose the music for a feature film and record an orchestra in Lisabon. The developing of two different TV series will be something Simon work a lot with. Simon is open for job offers and collaborations as a composer, composer and writer. Simon’s main focus is always composing though but the love for writing and producing are close second.
Simon’s first Hollywood score is completed after a super creative month! Simon is happy to announce that the Swedish band Kite will appear in the film with a song written for the film. The Perfect Weapon is directed by Titus Paar who is super happy with Simon’s score.
It’s a dream come true and everyday I was composing I felt inspired. I have recently composed three feature film scores (Vilsen, Vitt skräp [with Joel Forssell], The Perfect Weapon ) no one have heard and I am starting to get very excitied for the releases. Titus is a true artist who actually himself sing on one of the cues. I am very happy to work with Kite who I truly can recommend for their dreamy, dark and addictive sound and vocals.
,Says Simon Kölle himself.
Simon is composing the music for the Hollywood film “The Perfect Weapon” starring Steven Seagal, Johnny Messner (Tears of The Sun, The Equalizer), Sasha Jackson (One Tree Hill), Richard Tyson (There’s Something About Mary, Black Hawk Down, Kingpin), Vernon Wells (Mad Max: The Road Warrior, Commando) etc.
