Rian LIcenses “Out of the Darkness” for Double Vision

Award-winning Filmmaker Terry R. Wickham is smiling after European melodic hard rock band Rian has agreed to license the title track off their debut album Out of the Darkness to his forthcoming love story suspense thriller.

Wickham says, “As I was writing the screenplay for Double Vision, I visualized hearing very specific type of songs in the movie in relation to the characters I created and romantic mood I want.

I am a lifelong fan of melodic hard rock and heavy metal. I feel it’s super important to be true to oneself and tell stories utilizing the things that interest and matter to me.

So the music I wanted to hear with the main male character Wes McCulloch,  is melodic hard rock.  Wes drives a souped-up muscle car (mint black 1967 camero will be used in the movie) listening to melodic hard rock songs. In particular,  he replays a love mix CD for his girlfriend Julie, now that they are reconvening after 10-years apart.

So I put a search out for the top ranked melodic hard rock songs over the last year. I did my due diligence and listened to hundreds of these highly praised songs from numerous Hard Rock websites. Rian definitely stood out because they have a perfect mix of heaviness and melody.

I just love this type of sound and Rian personifies it beautifully. With “Out of the Darkness, if you listen to the lyrics they actually could support multiple storyline meaning as to what happens in the movie. For me, it’s a perfect marriage of song & film.

I hope when the audience hears “Out of the Darknessin Double Vision that it attracts new fans to Rian’s music.  In my humble opinion, these guys are something special.”

RIAN stays with one foot in the present and the other on the 80s’ rock scene. The guys spent last year working on their debut album ‘Out of the Darkness’, released July 2017 on MelodicRock Recrords. Filled with powerful well-crafted songs the album received great reception from the press and fans all over the world. Rian’s melodic rock is all about riffs, hooks & harmonies with a gritty edge. All that gives the band their original sound.

Current Lineup:

Richard Andermyr – Vocals, Guitars

Jan Johansson – Drums

Jonas Melin – Bass

Tobias Jakobsson – Guitars

Terry R. Wickham Filmmaking Boot Camp

In an effort to make his upcoming Filmmaking Boot Camp class more affordable for students and adults alike, the four-consecitive Saturdays course has a new price of $220

The Award-winning filmmaker says, “I want to make sure more people who want to learn how to make a movie can afford my course. This includes students.

I’m super excited to teach people things I never knew by just reading books or even from film schools in traditional settings.  What I am going to talk about will be unique because it’s based on my experience of making films from the ground up for the past 30 years. I went to film school at NYU and American Film Institute but most of my teaching will come from my direct experience of making movies and everything I’ve absorbed my whole life as a film fanatic.

Some examples would be not just technically how to write a proper screenplay but the ideas and thoughts that should be considered when doing a script. I have all sorts of little tips on how to make the process quicker and more productive.

Another thing will be when working with the actors on a movie, the key important things like how to speak an actors language that must be considered to get good performances, at the same time inspiring not just the performers but the crew.

I’ll be letting people know how they can get the most out of their production dollar and even in some situations how to get around things where you may not have money to normally get.

I can’t wait to see who turns out and I feel honored to get the opportunity to give them the knowledge to become filmmakers themselves. ”
