Adam Weiss Joins the Filmmaking Team for Global Documentary
Los Angeles, CA: The global documentary feature 8 Billion Angels has contracted with composer Adam Weiss to produce the score for the film. Weiss’ past work has earned him awards for his film soundtracks and original scores for theatrical productions including back-to-back Kennedy Center CAPPIES nominations.
“I love when documentaries give you that ‘spark’ feeling, making you feel like you’re a part of something greater, that something important is in the works,” said Weiss. “There’s a lot being communicated in the [8BA] interviews and a clear message – about devastation and the effect we’ve had on our environment. I think we can instead push the call to action element and get people inspired to make a difference, rather than emphasizing the issue as a matter of fact reality. We can address this with the music and create a more pulsing, driving soundtrack – something to inspire.”
About Adam Weiss: Based in Brooklyn, New York, Weiss is a summa cum laude graduate of Boston’s esteemed Berklee College of Music composition program.
