Music Clearance

I am very excited because today I got clearance for an amazing piece of music for Love Song. The song is Holiday by Dilana (she was the runner up for Rock Star Super Nova & she should have won). The song will be used in a montage of Shane & Dustin hanging around Venice Beach.

I managed to squeeze 2 montage/music video moments in the film and as we speak I'm working on adding a third; a series of time lapses set to music by The Fabulous Miss Wendy for the opening of the film. That will make 3 songs from Her Fabulousness/Dirty Virgin.

We've been toying with the idea that the song at the end of Christine's film should open mine but I don't know how we are going to make that work. Christine emailed me a song that almost made me puke. I don't want Vagina Music touching Love Song. If this turns out to be a juicy battle you'll have to buy the book. This blog is a small sample of what we've gone through to get this far!

I am super excited to have Dilana's contribution to this project.

Check out her myspace page:

Purchase her music on itunes:

I need to reach out to three more artists whose music I love, and Watson will reach out to the rest.



About The Three Shorts

Christine Le wrote and directed the 1st story Love 10 to 1.
The first story explores the life of a 29-year-old virgin, Jenny, who desperately wants to lose her virginity before her 30th birthday. As she encounters one loser after another on dates, Jenny pines after her boss, Dustin. While at her grandmother’s retirement home, Jenny learns a powerful lesson from her grandmother about sex and the meaning of life.

Lucy Rodriguez wrote and directed Love Song.
The second story revolves around Shane, the lead singer of the L.A. rock band, Dirty Virgin. Shane has her pick of admirers but it’s her roommate Dustin she wants to be with. Shane confesses her feelings on Jackie and Jared’s show but when Dustin meets Cali, Shane’s shot at love starts to dwindle. With Dirty Virgin about to embark on a world tour, will Dustin realize that he’s the object of Shane’s affections? Will they risk their friendship to give this Love Song a chance?

Laura Somers wrote and directed Diving Lessons.
The final story picks up where Love 10 to 1 left off, but from the perspective of Jim, the guitarist of Dirty Virgin. Jim sees Jenny at a swimming pool, trying desperately to overcome her fear of diving. In fact, he finds out that she’s making a list of everything that she’s afraid of and trying to overcome them, one by one. He is instantly smitten and tries to convince her that he’s not just a rock star who ‘loves ‘em and leaves ‘em’. Can a rock star find love with a virgin?
