Kristin Kontrol and Andrew Miller launch Hunny Music + Scores ‘Looking Glass’ film dir. by Tim Hunter (River’s Edge) & starring Nicholas Cage
Hunny Music is the songwriting and production team comprised of Kristin Gundred and Andrew Miller. The duo are currently working on the score for Tim Hunter’s film, Looking Glass, starring Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage and Robin Tunney.
Gundred is known for her work in former band Dum Dum Girls and current solo project Kristin Kontrol. Miller is an LA-based producer. The pair have worked together on various projects for over ten years. Most recently, Miller co-produced the Kristin Kontrol debut album X-Communicate, released via Sub Pop last year to critical acclaim. This is their first collaboration on a feature length film.
Looking Glass is at its core a very human story: a grieving couple struggles to move forward together in the wake of their daughter’s death. The film quickly mutates into a surreal, almost exaggerated look at what transmissible sins lay below the surface of an unremarkable motel in an unremarkable desert town.
It is this multiplicity that compelled Hunter, whose credits include the 1986 cult classic River’s Edge (as well as episodes of the original Twin Peaks, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men), to return to film after more than a decade away.
Looking Glass is produced by Braxton Pope (whose credits include The Source Family and The Trust) and David Wulf for Highland Film Group and marks the second collaboration between Pope and Gundred. A fan of her work, Pope solicited acclaimed author Bret Easton Ellis to write a short film for Dum Dum Girls’ single “Are You OK?” Presented by Vice and MOCA TV, the mini-thriller starred Gundred and actor Shiloh Fernandez and featured additional scoring by Tamaryn and industrial legend Drew McDowall.
Taking periodic breaks from scoring and finishing her next release, Kristin Kontrol continues to tour in support of X-Communicate. Following dates with Chairlift on their recent farewell tour, upcoming shows include June 9th in Brooklyn for the Northside Festival, August 4th in San Francisco at Popscene!, August 6th in Hollywood at the Hollywood Bowl (supporting Spoon and Belle and Sebastian), and August 18th in Columbus, Ohio at Fashion Meets Music Festival.
