Music production

The film SAMUEL DIRK is an absurdistic story about two middle-aged men who rekindle their childhood friendship under the gaze and distraction of a mother and a girlfriend. It’s written and directed by Dan Geesin, a musically minded filmmaker. He has made soundtracks for award winning films (i.e. Can go through skin) and directed an array of short films.

For SAMUEL DIRK we are currently looking for a music producer to work with Dan Geesin on the original soundtrack. We would like to introduce Dan to other musical professionals who might enhance his vision and take the work further; interpreting, contributing to and exploiting this musical venture.

Because Dan has always developed the audio story for a film in parallel to the film’s production, we are very interested to involve other team members at this early stage so we can organically grow together. Dan is a serious and quirky artist who believes firmly in not resting on one’s laurels and always in the potential for creativity to manifest something indescribable. Creating a good collaboration is for Dan not just dependent on anticipating a click but always started with a discussion and exchange of ideas then seeing where this conversation flies or crashes.
Dan is currently developing new songs in the conflicting genres of Heavy Rock and Folk to create musical parallels to the story. He is not interested in fronting the music and wants to give all the lime light to the artist in exchange for their enthusiasm and passion.

One of the ways we would like to involve participating musicians is by creating video clips that can be exploited in a music arena. The music will feed off the film context and vice versa. Ultimately the music should be powerful work in it’s own right and should also comfortably stand on it’s own.

Bio:

Dan is a multidisciplinary artist, making films, music and drawings. He has made six music albums on small labels and his films and visual art have been show all over the world.
He grew up between the hedges of East Sussex, England and the alternative electronic and folk music scene where his father did most of his work. He did poo’s all over Pete Townshend’s lawn, broke Roger Waters swimming pool thermometer and set many things on fire.
In 1994 he moved to Holland to attend the postgraduate art school De Ateliers, Amsterdam. They didn’t take his music seriously, which was a good thing. Dan now lives and works in the Groningen countryside and in Amsterdam. He will always be a foreigner and will always be at home in Europe.
