Splash 6 incoming!
A year ago
Its been 84 years...
Well what a year it has been for releasing vinyl, after announcing Bullhead, Cargo and Kid during last years Film Fest Gent they have finally been shipped and received by the pre-order buyers (thanks again for your patience). The retail versions are hitting stores this Friday. And after being in contact with a big player in the States several boxes have also arrived at the other end of the Atlantic (more exciting details about this soon).
As we first wanted to ship before announcing new titles we have been sitting on a few new titles for a while. But the day has come! And the current waiting times have also been cut down a lot, Splash!006 is expected to ship April/May. Pre-order opening first of December at 20:00 CET and as always, first 50 orders get a signed copy.
Patrick by Geert Hellings
The 2019 first feature movie by Tim Mielants. Belgian director who also worked on Peaky Blinders (2016), Legion (2017), The Terror (2018) and Tales from the Loop (2020) to name some.
At 38, Patrick is left in charge of his parents' naturist campground. When he loses his hammer, it becomes a quest for finding himself.
The score is from Tim´s long time friend Geert Hellings. As Geert puts it:
Writing music for film and TV is something that came naturally as soon as I started doing it. I have always been fascinated by how a good soundtrack can create an extra narrative thread, an extra character in the story, something visceral and tangible at the same time. I always felt that good film music is first noticed by your feeling, rather than by your ear.
Growing up in the eighties, the great Hollywood scores of that age (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Ghostbusters, ...) influenced my love for melody. But there is another, more minimalist urge in me, which entails an almost melancholy atmosphere that will always color all the stuff I write. Melody and atmosphere, mixed with my love for americana music, is probably what you'd call the Geert Hellings sound.
Artwork by Arno Kiss
Arno Kiss is another great example that we aren´t short on talent in Belgium. With clients like Netflix, Universal, Lucasfilm and DreamWorks he has an impressive portfolio! So glad we can add him to our list of artists and he has done an amazing job with his alternative artwork for De Patrick.
