Chevrolet | Go Beyond*

Directed by Goh Iromoto

Produced by Steam Films

“‘Lux’—along with many other Taubert tracks—was one of many songs I had compiled in my early treatment phase. Between myself, the creative team, and our editor Chris Murphy, we all knew that an epic sense of scale and gravitas was needed for this story. Ryan’s work bleeds these above qualities, and when I saw the first cut, we all knew it had the power to elevate the feeling we were hoping to express in this spot.” – Goh Iromoto

The Coral Gardeners | Can They Really Save the World?*

Directed by Cory S. Martin

“Bridging the gap between a familiar world and a magical one through music wasn’t the easiest task. I felt melodysheep really had the right mood to deliver what the story deserved.” – Drew Longest

Shimano Europe Group | Made In: Milano

Directed by Michiel Rotgans

“I was especially happy with ‘Only Time Will Tell’ by Jo Blankenburg. I love basic instruments like drums, pianos, and strings without throwing too many gimmicks in the mix. It’s a 3-minute piece, and I was able to remix it perfectly for the 1-minute intro. It started powerfully, dropped, regained energy, and ended in a climax without being too dramatic.” – Michiel Rotgans

The Relics

Directed by Ethan Milner

“I’ve always loved Ryan’s work and followed it closely. I wanted music that felt ghostly and operatic and emotional. The film was about legacy, and in putting it together, medieval imagery kept coming to mind—Arthurian ideas of honor, sacrifice, and loss. I remembered Mr. Taubert’s albums ‘Fool’ and ‘Fable’ and listened to them all through prep. I picked those two tracks before we shot. We even played the songs on set for our actor/stunt coordinator Juliene so she could feel the tone and intensity of the piece. – Ethan Milner

This Is for the Uninspired Street Photographer.*

Created by Faizal Westcott

“The music selection for this video needed to reflect my feeling of being stuck in my own head during a time when I felt unmotivated and uninspired to go out and do photography. Since most of the story is driven by my narration, I wanted something that wouldn’t be too overbearing but was also something that would be powerful enough to listen to by itself. I felt that the three songs I used worked perfectly in conveying these feelings with their atmospheric and solemn melody.

The song ‘Rainfield’ worked perfectly in that it starts a bit somber but picks up and becomes uplifting. I thought it worked well when I talked about all the places I was going to travel to this year. The song Only Human has this interesting abrupt static that ends the song. I really liked that element, so I included it at the end of my video. I felt like it resembled a ‘mic drop’ moment.” – Faizal Westcott

Official Selections: Wedding Film

Gunnar + Megan

Created by Wild Oak Films

“We wanted an indie sort of vibe for the wedding day song. As soon as we heard [‘Cereus Bright’], we knew it was it. The vocals and the build made us feel so much. The sound of the song also fits very well with who the couple is and what their weekend was about.” – Wild Oak Films
