Movie: "Into the Wild"

Postby KarenZ » Wed Sep 20, 2006 11:41 am

Folks,

Gosh, I've been knocking myself out trying to find a contact address or phone number for anyone associated with the movie Into the Wild (to suggest Ellis' song) with no success. I finally joined the movie's message board and started a thread "Music for Into the Wild" asking if anyone could provide any help with a contact. Do you guys think it would help if more of us from the EP board chimed in? To be able to post on the ITW board, you have to go through a painless registration process. If you're interested and would like to help the cause click here to join the movie's message board.

Karen, I'd be happy to help. I'm sure all of us would be. Seems like the long way round...but hey...whatever works.

Seems like there would be a few degrees of separation to expedite the process of bring Ellis' song to the movie people's attention.

I could suggest a bunch......but don't want to name drop or impose on folks. I truly hope somehow the word gets out there.

Maybe we get Mel Gibson lubed and driving and involved, and he shouts it at the top of his lungs to the arresting officer, that Ellis's song should be considered for Into The Wild's soundtrack.

Consider it done! I've added my two-penny-worth.

Thanks, Jela! :)

Paddy, yes, I realize it's the long way around. As I stated, I have not been successful in finding a more direct route.

Karen and Jela,

Have just viewed the thread you two have so ably begun, and I have to commend you both for your posts on the subject. I do believe if anything can get Ellis' song consideration for placement in this movie, both of your posts on the movie website on the subject at hand is just bound to get noticed by someone associated with the filmmakers.

Awesome job you two. :D

I see that someone who knows the person/people responsible for the film's music replied to the thread about using Ellis' song.

Whilst they thought that it may not make the soundtrack I hope that the point made by Patti on the thread is appreciated as it is spot on.

Here's hoping they do include it...
