Spooky hitmaker collective LVCRFT teams up with the legendary horror composer Christopher Young on ‘Scream Warriors,’ “The Most Terrifying Album Ever Made,” coming out on September 30.

“Skeleton Sam” will be featured in Disney’s upcoming Hocus Pocus 2 film.

What happens when you combine the world’s top songwriters, a legendary horror film composer, and cutting-edge immersive sound? The answer is ‘Scream Warriors’ in Dolby Atmos by LVCRFT & Christopher Young, “the most terrifying album ever made,” out September 30th on all digital platforms. The sinister spawn of spooky-obsessed hitmakers – responsible for crafting songs like “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry, “Halo” by Beyonce, “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz, and “Levitating” by Dua Lipa – and featuring terrifying orchestrations and interludes by Christopher Young (Hellraiser, Nightmare On Elm Street 2, Sinister, etc.) – ‘Scream Warriors’ was mixed in Dolby Atmos, creating an immersive listening experience by revealing incredible details that can be heard and felt all around you.

“Think of the album as a soundtrack to a horror film that hasn’t been made yet,” comments LVCRFT songwriter Evan Kidd Bogart, AKA Lil’ Punkin, who when he isn’t writing ghoulish hits can be found writing smashes for the living like “Halo” by Beyoncé. “We really tried to create a listening experience that was groundbreaking and pushed the boundaries of an audio-visual listening experience. We wrote the music and then collaborated with Christopher and his team to orchestrate and sound design a universe of sonics that fully support the album’s story narrative – before, after, in between, and even within our songs.”
 
“In the past our music was fun and jaunty – think “I Put A Spell On You” or “Somebody’s Watching Me,’” adds producer Peter Wade, AKA Norman Crates. “This year we wanted to create something truly scary.”

The fourth installment in a series of Halloween releases – featuring hook-filled ghoulish pop bops to shake and wake the dead and undead, alike – ‘Scream Warriors’ is just the latest project from the Halloween obsessed hitmaker collective LVCRFT, whose mantra “spooky never sleeps” showcases the power of spooky to lift the spirits all year long. LVCRFT first made waves in 2019, when their single “Skeleton Sam” became a cult hit, leading GQ to call their 2019 debut ‘This Is Halloween Volume 1,’ “a clear ancestor of iconic Halloween hits like ‘The Monster Mash’ & ‘Thriller!,’” and Paper Magazine to call their 2020 follow-up “a perfect Halloween album.”

Since then, LVCRFT has become a dominant force in the spooky community, adored by legions of Halloween obsessed fans and music lovers, and a highly coveted songwriting commodity for film, TV, immersive events, and more. The excitement around the project has yielded partnerships with Netflix – most notably for their Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3 and Adam Sandler’s Hubie Halloween – and Freeform, as LVCRFT was asked to craft the theme-song for the network’s popular 31 Nights of Halloween programming for three years in a row (listen to this year’s theme, a cover of Andrew Gold’s “It Must Be Halloween”). 2021’s album ‘The Return’ spawned a national campaign around the filming of the first official LVCRFT music video in a Spirit Halloween store and also led to LVCRFT’s very own Halloween-themed radio show on SiriusXM’s Volume, with Lyndsey Parker and AFI’s Davey Havok.

The members of LVCRFT have become fixtures at Halloween conventions around the country and beloved members of the spooky sub-culture, appearing live in-person and providing music for the events. In addition to ‘Scream Warriors,’ 2022 has found LVCRFT partnering with Saint from the Boulet Brothers Dragula, who starred in their “Half-O-Ween” and hosted an insane “Midsummer Scream” costume contest in July. Their recent single “Pumpkin Spice Everything” pays tribute to the annual Halloween season obsession, and the group just announced that their song “Skeleton Sam” will be featured in Disney’s upcoming Hocus Pocus 2 film. They’re even creating a scream library of spooky sound effects “of the community, for the community” to be used in immersive spaces, films, and wherever else spooky sounds are needed.

The members of LVCRFT are all LA natives who met over the years at various Halloween events – Hollywood horror nights, haunted houses, and other spooky events – and who bonded over their individual careers as hit songwriters. After hearing the same songs played at these events countless times, they thought, “We grew up listening to all of these old [Halloween] songs that we loved, but they’re old songs. Why haven’t there been new ones?” They arranged a studio, decked it out in Halloween gear, and wrote their 2019 debut within a week.

Stay tuned for continued updates.

FINAL DAYS TO VIEW THE WIZARD OF OZ AND SPIKE LEE GALLERIES AT THE ACADEMY MUSEUM.

Last Week to See Iconic Ruby Slippers as Part of The Art of Moviemaking: The Wizard of Oz and Dozens of Items from Spike Lee’s Personal Collection in Director’s Inspiration: Spike Lee Installations Close Sep. 25. THE ART OF MOVIEMAKING: THE GODFATHER and DIRECTOR’S INSPIRATION: AGNÈS VARDA Open Nov. 3.

LOS ANGELES – The Art of Moviemaking: The Wizard of Oz and Director’s Inspiration: Spike Lee, both part of the Academy Museum of Motion Picture’s acclaimed Stories of Cinema exhibition, will close on September 25, 2022. Both galleries have been on view since the museum opened nearly a year ago on September 30, 2021.

With a pair of original ruby slippers, the iconic blue gingham pinafore worn by Judy Garland, as well as the sepia pinafore worn by Garland’s stand-in in the 1939 film. The Art of Moviemaking: The Wizard of Oz takes visitors behind-the-scenes to explore the many disciplines that come together to bring a single film to life—screenwriting, casting, makeup design, costume design, production design, sound design, special effects, acting, directing, producing, and more. 

Original posters, script drafts, drawings, production photography, the Cowardly Lion’s mane and the Wicked Witch of the West’s hat all come together to showcase a film that changed moviemaking forever.

Director’s Inspiration: Spike Lee draws from the Academy Award®-winning director’s personal collection of objects, such as a guitar owned by Prince (with whom he collaborated) and the custom purple Gucci suit Lee wore to the 2020 Oscars® to pay tribute to Lakers star player Kobe Bryant (whom he chronicled in the 2009 documentary Kobe Doin’ Work).

Informed by Spike Lee’s own account of the creative process, the gallery considers his body of work and the inspiration behind some of his most iconic titles such as Do the Right Thing (1989) and Crooklyn (1994) as well as recurring themes and collaborators.

The respective galleries will be transformed for The Art of Moviemaking: The Godfather and Director’s Inspiration: Agnès Varda, each opening November 3. 

The Art of Moviemaking: The Godfather, will showcase the collaborative process of the making of this masterpiece through a wide array of original objects, images, and stories. In 1972, director Francis Ford Coppola’s interpretation of Mario Puzo’s popular novel provided an operatic and poignant reflection on the American Dream that not only radically transformed the moviegoing experience, but also the moviemaking process. Featured costumes, props, scripts, and equipment will highlight the contributions of each cinematic branch, exploring how they innovated amidst the limitations and freedoms of “New Hollywood.” 

Object highlights include Don Corleone’s desk and chair used in The Godfather trilogy, Coppola’s original “Godfather notebook,” and a costume worn by Al Pacino in The Godfather Part II. This exhibition is organized by Assistant Curator Sophia Serrano. Leading up to The Godfather gallery rotation, the Academy Museum Store will be releasing an exclusive limited-edition The Godfather LP in partnership with Amoeba Music. The album will feature music from The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and will include music from the trilogy. Pre-order your copy today at academymuseumstore.org.

Also opening is Director’s Inspiration: Agnès Varda, an exploration of one of global cinema’s most radical and transformative artists. Belgian-born Varda’s work is undeniably personal drawing inspiration from her life, experiences, the people and the world around her. This gallery will highlight her influences and films from her six-decade long career ranging from La Pointe Courte (1955), widely regarded as the first film of the French New Wave, to her autobiographical Varda by Agnès (2019). A photographer prior to becoming a filmmaker, the gallery will explore Varda’s time behind the still camera including prints, contact sheets, and photography related production materials.

From her years living in Los Angeles to her familial relationships, the autobiographical elements that permeate all aspects of Varda’s filmography will be represented using personal postcards, props, family photographs, and other production materials. Additionally, Varda’s career as a fine artist and her longstanding love of art history which influenced many of her films will be explored using production notebooks, posters, and a model for one of her cinema shack installations. This gallery is curated by former Assistant Curator Ana Santiago and completed by Jessica Niebel, Exhibitions Curator with support from Manouchka Kelly Labouba, Research Assistant and the collaboration of Rosalie Varda-Demy, Mathieu Demy and Ciné-Tamaris.

Stories of Cinema is organized by Vice President of Curatorial Affairs Doris Berger, Senior Curator for Collections and Curatorial Affairs Nathalie Morris, Exhibitions Curators Jenny He and Jessica Niebel, Associate Curator Dara Jaffe, and Assistant Curators J. Raúl Guzmán, Dara Jaffe, Ana Santiago, and Sophia Serrano, with support from Curatorial Assistant Esme Douglas and Research Assistant Manouchka Kelly Labouba, the Academy Museum Inclusion Advisory Committee, and the Academy Branch Task Forces.

The Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall to host the world’s leading film talent on Sunday 19 February 2023. EE BAFTA Film Awards to be broadcast on BBC One and worldwide. Entries open today.

LONDON, 21 September: Today, BAFTA unveils London’s Royal Festival Hall as its new home for one of the biggest nights in the global film calendar. The EE BAFTA Film Awards brings British and international talent together to celebrate the incredible ingenuity and creativity of film, and the people who bring them to life on both sides of the screen. The move will see BAFTA programme its most ambitious and accessible night yet, bolstered by a refreshed production and format. With entries opening today, the countdown to 19 February 2023 officially begins.

The Southbank Centre’s monumental Royal Festival Hall, opened by King George VI and HRH Princess Elizabeth on 3 May 1951 is located in the heart of London on the River Thames. BAFTA’s legendary red carpet will roll out at the UK’s largest arts centre next to some of the capital’s most famous landmarks, from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to the National Theatre, BFI and the London Eye.  

The ceremony will be broadcast on BBC One, BBC One HD, BBCiPlayer, and syndicated globally. Red carpet interviews with nominees and guests will be streamed live across BAFTA and BBC’s social channels, offering audiences an exclusive front row seat as talent arrive. Further details including host for the 2023 Awards, will be announced at a later date.

Emma Baehr, Executive Director of Awards and Content, said: The EE BAFTA Film Awards are a global spotlight on the most exciting, innovative and creative stories being told in Britain and around the world, as well as playing host to the world’s biggest stars and a variety of unforgettable moments. The Royal Albert Hall has been a wonderful home to us for the last six years. As we embark on the next chapter in an incredibly exciting year for film, we can’t wait to kick off our new residency at the Royal Festival Hall with BAFTA’s most ambitious celebration yet.

Anna Higgs, Chair of BAFTA Film Committee, said: After months of painstaking preparations we are delighted to officially open entries for the 2023 EE BAFTA Film Awards. With the impressive calibre and creativity of films already on release, or on the way, our members in the UK and around the world have a phenomenal awards season ahead. Celebrating excellence, championing the value of the screen industries, and driving positive change through ensuring a level playing field continue to be at the heart of what BAFTA does – so we can’t wait to get going on voting and celebrating another fantastic year for film.”

Elaine Bedell, CEO of the Southbank Centre, said: “I’m delighted that this cements the partnership between BAFTA and the Southbank Centre, as we’re also home to BAFTA’s TV and Games Awards. BAFTA’s decision to bring three Awards ceremonies under one roof underscores the variety, scale and creative potential of our spaces to programme a spectacular evening, for everyone. We’re delighted to support the vitally important screen industries and are so excited to see the Southbank Centre transformed for one of the biggest nights in the global film calendar.”

Celebrating excellence, nurturing the next generation of talent and creating a level playing field in film, games and television is at the heart of BAFTA’s mission as an arts charity. Films in contention will be decided by BAFTA’s global membership, via a robust and carefully audited process that involves three rounds of voting, with nominations unveiled on 19 January 2023. Audiences at home will also be invited to vote on their favourite breakout talent, via the prestigious EE Rising Star Award.

The EE BAFTA Film Awards have been a core part of the charity’s mission to identify and celebrate creative excellence since its inception 75 years ago. Previous venues include the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Opera House and the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square, London. With a new CEO Jane Millichip starting next month, and a major redevelopment of BAFTA’s HQ completed earlier this year, 2022 marks an exciting year of transformation and renewal for the organisation.

LUMINARIES GATHER FOR AN EVENING WITH SACHEEN LITTLEFEATHER AT THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURES MUSEUM.  LITTLEFEATHER’S FOUR-HOUR VISUAL HISTORY NOW AVAILABLE ON THE MUSEUM’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

Los Angeles, Calif. – On September 17, 2022, luminaries from the Native American, Indigenous, and entertainment communities came together at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles for An Evening with Sacheen Littlefeather—a public program focused on celebration, healing, and reflection. The event was followed by an intimate private reception. 

The museum livestreamed An Evening with Sacheen Littlefeather on its YouTube channel. The video will be available online until Friday, September 23; a trimmed version of the event will then be shared to the museum’s channel.

In addition, as part of the Academy’s Oral History Projects, the museum has published a nearly four-hour visual history with Littlefeather, interviewed by Academy Museum Director and President Jacqueline Stewart. The mission of the Academy Oral History Projects is to collect, record, preserve, and provide access to personal spoken accounts that provide insight into the history and evolution of the art, science, and craft of motion pictures. The recording arm of the program—the Visual History Program—has been operating since 2012 and has so far filmed 234 filmmaker interviews (about 940 hours of original content) and preserved another 1,200 historical interviews from other sources.


The event commenced with a Tongva land acknowledgement facilitated by Virginia Carmelo (Tongva/S. CA) before emcees Earl Neconie (Kiowa/OK) and Academy Museum Director and President Jacqueline Stewart took the stage. Their words were followed by an Honoring Song performed by Steve Bohay and the Sooner Nation Singers and Michael Bellanger and the All Nation Singers. The audience was then treated to a lively intertribal powwow dance featuring women’s northern traditional buckskin dancer Teresa Littlebird (Northern Cheyenne/CA), grass dancer Wesley Bellanger (Ojibiway/MN and Kickapoo/OK), grass dancer Randy Pico Jr. (Navajo & Luiseño, CA), southern straight men’s traditional dancer James Gregory (Osage/OK), southern women’s cloth dancer Michele Gregory (Pit River/No. CA), fancy shoal dancer Olivia Gone (Southern Cheyenne/OK), jingledress dancer Sophia Seaboy (Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate Sisseton/SD), and chicken dancer Ahshkii Keediniihii (Diné Navajo/AZ), plus a moving rendition of Song in Lushootseed and Don’t Count Me Out by vocalist Calina Lawrence (Suquamish/WA).

Following these powerful performances, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences CEO Bill Kramer took the stage to underscore the Academy and Academy Museum’s prioritization of representation, belonging, inclusion, and access. Visitors then watched a 60-second clip of Littlefeather’s speech from the 1973 Academy Awards® during which—at Marlon Brando’s request—she respectfully declined his Best Actor award in protest of the treatment of Native Americans in the entertainment industry. This clip is currently on view in the museum’s Academy Awards History gallery. 

Academy member, producer, and co-chair of the Academy’s Indigenous Alliance Bird Runningwater (Cheyenne/Mescalero Apache/NM) then took the stage with Sacheen Littlefeather (Apachi/Yaqui/AZ) for a 20-minute conversation that reflected on Littlefeather’s experiences the last fifty years.

Later in the evening, former Academy President David Rubin, with current Academy President Janet Yang, read the Academy’s apology letter—originally presented to Littlefeather on June 18, 2022—after which Littlefeather offered a moving response.

The White Mountain Apache Crown Dancers from Arizona with Joe Tohonnie got everyone on their feet with a dynamic dance to close out the program.

Immediately following the public program, the museum hosted a private reception for 300 guests in its Tea Room and Wilshire Terrace with food provided by guest chef Crystal Wahpepah (Kickapoo/OK), owner and operator of Wahpepah’s Kitchen in Oakland, CA. Wahpepah mindfully chooses Indigenous food sources for her cuisine, with ingredients originating from the people and lands to which she is connected and has a relationship.  In addition to Sacheen, the evening’s presenters and performers, and Academy and Academy Museum leadership, notable guests included: costume designer Ruth E. Carter, Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO and museum trustee Ray Halbritter (Oneida Indian Nation/NY), musical artist Taboo, actor Devery Jacobs, actor and filmmaker Riley Keough, actor Zahn McClarnon, and Academy member, producer, co-chair of the Academy’s Indigenous Alliance Heather Rae.
