We are trying to get our song “Waiting For You” in a movie called “The Time Traveler’s Wife”. A few years ago we both read the book, and it inspired Rob so much that he had to write a song about it. (I’m sure there will be an upcoming blog entry about that.) Well, now a movie has been made of the book and it is due to be released in August of this year.
As it happens, we just finished the final recording and mix of our song a couple of weeks ago. Since then, we have been asking everyone we know if they know any movie people or song pluggers. Because we live in Nashville, one of the song writing capitals of the world, it turns out that we know quite a few people with the proper contacts.
Today, I got an email from my friend Leslie who has a screenwriter cousin in Los Angeles, and guess what! It turns out that he knows the movie’s director and will be happy to pass something along to him. We are just waiting to hear back about what to send.
In the meantime, we are saying little prayers, wishing on stars, crossing our fingers and recording more songs.
***Update: It turns out that the cousin knows the director well enough that he convinced him to cast the little girl who appears in the film. Wow.
***Another update: It also turns out that the movie was completely finished by the time we got anything to them. O well. Maybe it could go in another movie.
