Director Craig Gillespie of MJZ reached out to frequent collaborator Peter Nashel (I,Tonya), creative director/composer and founder of duotone audio group to find an authentic musical voice for what was literally a dream project: score the music for six long-form mock “trailers” starring Jessica Alba and Zac Efron. Each of the spots in the campaign mimics a familiar movie trailer style, and they wanted the music to do the same. The objective was to make these sound and feel like authentic trailers. Complete with over 10 cues and a 50-piece overseas orchestral record, this project was quite the challenge to pull off mid-pandemic.

This  mock trailer, “A Romance to Remember” was the second one up. Inspired by indie rom coms, it begins with a fun little surf hook before it transitions into a charming indie movie score and eventually to a fully produced Mediterranean Manouche song complete with fabulous vocals (in Italian) by Gege Telesforo and Chiara Izzi.
