The categories of “Best Original Score,” “Best Family TV Spot,” and “Best Original Score TV Spot” for the 17th Annual Golden Trailer were swept by The Jungle Book.
On May 4, 2016, Comedian Wayne Brady hosted the 17th Annual Golden Trailer Awards, which garnered big wins for both Create Advertising Group and Vibe Creative’s work for Disney’s The Jungle Book. The Golden Trailer Awards were created in 1999 by Evelyn Watters and Monica Brady to recognize the best in worldwide motion picture and television marketing. “Trailers remain the single most important tool to open a movie,” said Watters. “One night per year, the tireless efforts and innovations of the artists who cut these two minutes of movie magic are recognized for their craft.”
The Hit House created music for wins for Vibe in the “Best Original Score” category for “Mowgli.” The “Bare Necessities” arrangement, recording, and whistles by The Hit House composers William Hunt and Scott Miller can be prominently heard as trailer music in spots leading up to the release of and in a final scene of the actual film, as well as here on SoundCloud: Bare Necessities.
For Create Advertising’s Jungle Book campaign The Hit House composers Scott Miller and William Hunt created the “Legend,” TV spot (see above), which won “Best Original Score TV Spot” as well as the “Best Family TV Spot.”
The Golden Trailer Awards were an exciting night filled with growls, roars, and beautiful music experienced by all in The Hit House team. We look forward to all the wild musical adventures the next year may bring and are so happy for Vibe and Create‘s successes!
