Hidden Valley Place (Original Soundtrack) + Teaser Trailer Released

Hidden Valley Place is the new thriller short film from director/co-writer Bartley Taylor (Colony, Parallax), co-writer Julia Cooperman (Absentia, Jupiter's Legacy), and associate producer Ryan J. Condal (co-creator of the Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon, Colony).

The film features an original score (out now on SkyBabyRecords) composed, produced and performed by Independent Music Award nominee Paul Terry (Sidney & Friends, Care), mixed by Emmy and two-time Grammy Award winner Sam Okell (The Beatles: Get Back, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), and mastered by award-winning mastering engineer Alex Wharton (Paul McCartney, Radiohead) at Abbey Road Studios. As well as being Hidden Valley Place's composer, Paul Terry is also an associate producer on the film.

Hidden Valley Place sees a Los Angeles couple welcome a new house-sitter, Cassie, into their chic Laurel Canyon home. As Cassie gets used to her new surroundings, she uncovers a secret about the house, and her much-needed getaway turns into a nightmare... A teaser trailer for the film has been released:

The complete, 18-track Hidden Valley Place (Original Soundtrack) includes 4 bonus tracks—new versions of 4 songs featured in the film—rearranged by Paul Terry and mixed by Sam Okell.

The soundtrack is available now on all music platforms, with cover art by AD Allegretti. There is also a Special Edition on Bandcamp which comes with an exclusive 32-page digital booklet, featuring a foreword by director Bartley Taylor, composer production notes, behind-the-scenes photos, promo art, stills from the film, and more. The official promo video for the soundtrack, featuring AD Allegretti's artwork, and edited by Len Ciccotello, is below:

Johnny!). The crew includes award-winning cinematographer Daniel Steven Williams (James Arthur feat.

The film will be screening soon on the international film festival circuit.

The Story of Marvel Studios: The Making of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by Tara Bennett & Paul Terry

When Paul Terry isn't writing music, he's writing books. His latest (co-authored with frequent collaborator Tara Bennett) is The Story of Marvel Studios, the definitive story of how Marvel Studios created the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as told by the studio's creatives, and the cast and crew of The Infinity Saga. The official book trailer is below:

The Story of Marvel Studios is the first-ever, fully authorized, all-access history of Marvel Studios’ creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as told by the producers, writers, directors, concept artists, VFX artists, cast, and crew who brought it to life.

Year-by-year, project-by-project, the studio’s founding and meteoric growth are described through detailed personal stories, anecdotes, and remembrances of noteworthy challenges, breakthrough milestones, and history-making successes. Together, these stories reveal how each of the films evolved into one ongoing cinematic narrative, as coauthors Tara Bennett and Paul Terry (The Official Making of Big Trouble in Little China, 2017) chart the complete production history of The Infinity Saga’s 23 movies (from 2008’s Iron Man all the way up to, and including, 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home).

Bennett and Terry were granted unprecedented access to Marvel Studios, which led to this years-in-the-making tome containing personal stories from more than 200 interviews, including every Marvel Studios producer; MCU writers and directors; the stars of The Infinity Saga; concept artists, costume designers, composers, and the talents behind the MCU’s dazzling visual effects; and more.
