Ost-Original Soundtrack is a documentary about music in motion pictures. It is an independent production by Fanis Logothetis and Spiros Andreadis, a collective effort to pay tribute to those who inspired us to the creation of what we call today, original soundtrack. The mission of the documentary is to acquaint the audience with a form of art that is fundamental in the film industry, yet it is invisible and relatively unknown to the general public.
Ost-Original Soundtrack tracks the path which the pioneers of creativity and inspiration engrave through the magical world of music and the movies. Their personal experiences, knowledge and opinions guide us step by step to the cinematic process.
The documentary features interviews with a number of renowned film composers from Greece and abroad, such as Nicola Piovani (especially known for his Oscar winning score to Benini’s film La Vita è Bella) and Trevor Jones (famous for his original film scores to films such as The Last of the Mohicans, Mississippi Burning, Runaway Train, Notting Hill, In the Name of the Father), as well as artists from other faculties who give us their very own perspective on the issue of film music.
Ost-Original Soundtrack is certainly an exciting journey that transfers the viewer to the amazing world of cinematic music.
