A Gypsy band called ‘Fanfare Ciocarlia' recorded the music. In the first few sketches Tomek Baginski wanted to use hits from the seventies but he quickly realized that it is quite impossible. “All the songs we wanted were very expensive and had complicated owners' structure” explains Bagnisky. “Music would be a very important part of the film, so we looked in other places. My brother, Wojtek, who did also a lot of compositing later, volunteered to look for ‘our' music. He spent three weeks listening to all different kinds of tunes, from many different, very exotic places. He was listening to music from the Middle East, Turkey, India, China, Africa, and also some unknown bands from Europe. He was looking just everywhere. Finally, he came to me with a piece called "Asfalt Tango" by Fanfare Ciocarlia and told me that it was the best. And it was. Martin, our executive producer, contacted the manager of the band and set the royalties that we could afford.”
Fallen Art will be shown on some important film festivals around the world. At the beginning Fallen Art will be screened at the Sundance Festival, Miami Festival and the HBO Festival in Aspen, among others. All details about Fallen Art screenings will be shown on their web page (www.platige.com, www.fallen-art.com). The short film will also be taking part in the Academy Award shorts theatrical program presented by Apollo Cinema (www.apollocinema.com).
The theatrical program will feature nominated, animated and live action shorts and will be in theatres all over the US and a few select theatres in Canada. People will get a chance to see some great shorts from the previous year too. There will be a Fallen Art DVD with three additional animated shorts by artists that worked during the Fallen Art project.
