Golden Trailer Awards, The Jungle Book, Suicide Squad, Uncharted 4,

Six major category nominations included music from The Hit House for Disney, Warner Bros., & Playstation.

The 2016 Golden Trailer Awards are devoted to the entertainment industry’s most outstanding achievements in motion picture marketing. In the 17th annual competition they acknowledge the work of marketers and companies that create movie trailers, commercials and key art worldwide.

For Disney, The Hit House worked on The Jungle Book with Vibe Creative to create “Mowgli,” the first trailer created exclusively for Disney’s annual D23 Expo. Our reimagining of “The Bare Necessities,” hear it here: http://bit.ly/TheHitHouseSoundcloudDisneyJungleBookBareNecessities, was nominated for “Best Original Score.”

We’re thrilled that the “Legend” TV spot by Create Advertising was nominated for not only “Best Animation/Family TV Spot,” but also “Best Original Score TV Spot.”  “The End of the Jungle,” was composed exclusively for “Legend” by Scott Miller and William Hunt: http://bit.ly/TheHitHouseJungleBookTVSpot. You can also hear our reimagining of “The Bare Necessities” in Trailer Park’s “Man Cub Combo” Super Bowl trailer,  nominated for “Best Fantasy Adventure,” http://bit.ly/TheHitHouseOfficialJungleBookTrailer.

Team Aspect blew everyone away with the Suicide Squad, “Rhapsody” trailer, and it’s nominated for the “Summer 2016 Blockbuster” category! It featured our enhancements to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and can be heard here: http://bit.ly/TheHitHouseSuicideSquadTrailer. Suicide Squad is Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Comics’ tent-pole comic book movie of the year, and we can’t wait for it.

For Sony PlayStation and Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End video game, The Hit House’s reimagined The Pixies’ “Where is My Mind,” heard here: http://bit.ly/TheHitHouseSoundCloudUncharted4TrailerMusic. The Golden Trailer Awards nominated the spot, “Man Behind The Treasure,” for “Best Video Game TV Spot” as seen here: http://bit.ly/TheHitHouseUncharted4PS4Trailer. The Hit House’s composer Scott Miller produced and arranged a unique cover composition of The Pixies’ classic song with stirring strings and haunting vocals, as an accompaniment to the trailer for Uncharted 4’s action-adventure third-person shooter’s heart-rending narrative of love, loss, and potential redemption. The Playstation 4 game releases on May 10, and is available for pre-order here: http://www.unchartedthegame.com/en-us/purchase.

Competition for Golden Trailer Awards nominations was fierce as a record number of submissions were entered, up 15% from last year. Evelyn Watters, GTA Executive Director, explained, “Everyone loves trailers. They are the most important and impactful part of a film campaign and they now live well beyond the movie theaters and have become the most consistently popular content online. The Golden Trailer Awards celebrates the trailer as an art form and recognizes those who work incredibly long hours behind the scenes to create this masterful short form entertainment.”

We’re so proud to be part of this creative industry. All the nominees are a shining example of just how hard the talented people in our industry work to make everything perfect for just the right tone and note in each trailer. We wish everyone the best on May 4th and we’ll be seeing you all at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.
