S'well "We Are All Made of Stars"

Agency/Production Co: Derby Content

Our Role: Music Supervision, Music Production

The Story: For their latest brand film, “We Are All Made of Stars”, S’well takes viewers on a whimsical journey into the natural world to commune with the stars, and the sea…and the original S’well Ocean Blue Bottle! Directed by John Poliquin and produced by our talented friends at Derby Content, “We Are All Made of Stars” has the lustrous feel of a high-end fashion film with playful moments of magical realism. And with no dialog or VO at all, the film needed a sophisticated and story-supporting soundtrack.

Having music supervised S’well’s first foray into filmic branding, Groove Guild was engaged again to collaborate with Derby and Poliquin on “Stars” — ultimately finding the song “Break Away” by dream pop artist Nathalie King and tailoring it for the film. The song brings a moody and cinematic quality to the beginning and build of the story and an airy and jubilant chorus to the film’s magical payoff.  Groove Guild worked with the artist to tailor the lyrics and arrangement to the film, and contributed sound design and some additional production to help score picture. We're psyched on how it turned out! Hats off to Derby who also served as the creative agency behind this film!
