“Driveways” Reviews Shine •⁣

Feel-good film to enjoy this week: Check out the tender film “Driveways” listed at 100% on RottenTomatoes.com, along with Best Film Scores of May 2020 on The Film Scorer. Directed by Andrew Ahn, Composed by Jay Wadley, featuring Hong Chau, Lucas Jaye and the late beloved Brian Dennehy, the intimate drama revolves around the unlikely friendship formed between a lonely young boy and his new elderly neighbor. "For a movie about isolation and the risk of reaching out, it's a generous example of how nourishing a sense of connection really is.” - Rolling Stone. Chicago Tribunes states, “Composer Jay Wadley sustains the emotional undercurrents brilliantly in what may turn out to be the most moving film music of 2020.”

🎈 Happy Birthday Marcel Duchamp •⁣

Found Objects’ inspiration behind our company name was inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s exploration into creating brilliant art with found pieces. While Found Objects continues to strive for unique combinations of juxtaposition in music - Duchamp’s work reinforces that beauty can come from unbeknownst fitting combinations. ⁣

This photograph was taken of Duchamp while paying homage to his painting “Nude Descending a Staircase” when Duchamp dissected the functional movement of the human body (1952, Eliot Elisofon).⁣

[2 of 2] What to Watch this Weekend •

Directed by Oscar-Winning/Nominated directors Roger Ross Williams, Alex Gibney and Liz Garbus and scored by Found Objects’ own Jay Wadley, The Innocence Files "widens the lens to interrogate bias and misconduct in the criminal justice system as a whole —encompassing police, prosecutors, trials and evidence, and mass incarceration” [Deadline]. The Emmy-contending series grew out of the work of the Innocence Project, a nonprofit with a mission to “free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.” This series is part of a broader effort in chipping away at the fundamental flaws and prejudices in the US justice system that must be corrected.⁣ See it on Netflix.

Check out out some other justice reform projects Jay has worked on including Emmy-nominated documentaries "Raised in the System" (VICE/HBO), "Longshot" (Netflix - Dir. Jacob LaMendola) & "Revolving Doors" (Dir. James Burns).⁣

FO Tackles Mental Health with Headspace •⁣

The FO team was excited to work on this colorful animation for Headspace, being as we all use it already in our personal lives! Headspace was founded to improve the health and happiness of the world — for whoever needs help, but especially those who need help most. They’re offering free subscriptions to educators, health care workers and every unemployed person in America free access to Headspace Plus, for a year. Headspace can’t fix everything — but it can help you cope with today and whatever tomorrow brings. Be kind to your mind.

05/11/2020

We partnered up to work on a message we truly believe in with the Reform Alliance - an organization backed by Meek Mill, Jay-Z, Van Jones, Michael Rubin, and most recently, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, that aims to reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system.⁣



Sign the petition at ReformAlliance.com to get masks/PPE in the hands of vulnerable prisoners and prevent COVID-19 spreading quickly in crowded jails. A prison sentence should not become a death sentence.⁣

FO covers Tchaikovsky for OnePlus' “Final Notch”

OnePlus “Final Notch”•⁣

Another spot from OnePlus’ beautifully intriguing campaign in which we created an arrangement for Tchaikovsky’s “Valse Sentimentale”. The ubiquitous Notch on other smart phones, is represented as an irksome old man. As mischievous as he is annoying, he continues to obstruct the stunning views and artwork, wreaking subtle havoc.

A notch gets in the way, so they got rid of it.
