Who: Highgate Vampire

What: Feature Film Music Supervision and Development

How: After a late night of “working” Asa Bailey was on a cab ride home; his journey through North London soon took him past the historic Highgate Cemetery. The cabbie turned around as they passed and asked Asa if he was familiar with the Highgate Vampire. Asa replied “Yeah right” and the cabbie replied by telling him the story of one of the most recent vampire legend on record. After hearing the cabbie’s story Asa’s brain began to run in creative overdrive and “The Highgate Vampire” film was born.

Asa set out to update the 276 year-old folklore with a modern twist, and several months later he completed his 118-page script. With the production team in place on both sides of the Atlantic, he then approached Jimmy Turner to gauge our thoughts on the original score.

After a successful and dynamic pitch, Jimmy Turner was appointed as music supervisors with a remit to oversee a variety of projects for the film including the original soundtrack.  We have been tasked with sourcing existing commercial material along with selecting specific composers for bespoke music scoring from our own roster of composers and established A list artists.  Additionally we are in discussions regarding the creation and distribution of the Highgate Vampire soundtrack with various third party distributors. Jimmy Turner has put together a solid roster of music labels and publishers, such as Universal, Sony ATV, PIAS, Kobalt and Domino, as well as showcasing artists from our own publishing division to name just a few.

The Highgate Vampire is scheduled to start shooting in autumn of 2010, with a proposed release for 2011.
