Hey Derek Fans! Don’t miss heading over to Make Your Move 3D Fans when you get a moment. They’ve premiered Part 3 of their new interview with “Make Your Move 3D” Director Duane Adler. Below is a take where they ask Duane about Derek’s involvement with writing one of the songs, “Let Me In” for the movie score. This is fascinating!!
Make Your Move Fans: We know that Derek was involved in the writing of Let Me In. Did he write the lyrics, the music, or both?
Duane: Here’s what happened: Derek played me a melody early in pre-production, it’s something he created in his house on his laptop with a keyboard. When he played it, he said it represented Donny and Aya. I listened, and there was a beautiful piano melody that became the melody and hook for “Let Me In,” and around that melody were big drums that Derek told me represented Aya’s taiko, and a guitar that represented Donny’s edge. It was beautiful and powerful and romantic – I loved it. So I played it for the film’s producers, as well as music supervisor, Joel C. High. They all loved it, too, and Joel suggested we get Derek in studio with our composers, Michael Thomas and Eric Goldman.
Michael and Eric are also music producers who have worked with artists like Lady Gaga. Once in the studio, the trio of Michael, Eric, and Derek teamed together to create the song! They all collaborated on lyrics and defined the layering. Michael actually sings lead on the track. Derek is also a very good vocalist, but we all thought it would be strange to hear his voice singing on a major set piece that he and BoA (as their characters) were dancing to!

Finally some news on the United States release date for Derek asnd BoA’s new movie “Make Your Move 3D”. Our friends at Make Your Move Fans are reporting a release date has been set for March 28th, 2014. Here is a little take from the link….
That’s right! An official release date has finally been set for Make Your Move 3D in the United States. It’s March 28, 2014. That’s a long time away…. But hey, it’s set!!!
As it so happens, many other countries often wait until the U.S. release date to schedule their releases. So we expect to hear more premiere dates for the other European and Asian countries soon!
LOTS more at Make Your Move Fans including pictures, posters, and news on a festival in Los Angeles taking place this weekend for the movie. A must read!!
ADDING: And what a fun tweet this is from director Duane Adler that says, “Good morning @kconusa! Good morning world! Great news to wake up to isn’t it!? Our date! Been a long road but finally here!”
Hey Guys! Don’t miss reading an exclusive new interview with the Duane Adler (the screen write and director of “Make Your Move 3D”) at Make Your Move Fans when you get a chance. You can read how Duane was inspired to make the movie as well as how he compares it to his Step Up Movies(which I love love!) and much more. Below is just a little take.
Make Your Move Fans: People are comparing Make Your Move 3D to the Step Up movies. Is that a fair comparison?
Duane: I’ve been fortunate to be part of some amazing filmmaking teams on other dance movies, specifically “Save the Last Dance” and of course “Step Up,” so I think my involvement on MYM is going to start that comparison. I think our dance and our story is unique to itself, though, and I think audiences will find that true when they see the film. Our dance and dance fusion styles are unlike any of the other dance films, and the multi-cultural love story is a further fusion, plus it’s a love story we don’t often see on film. MYM has an underdog story, too, and shares the story of characters who dream of better lives and goals. Those are human themes that resonate well in film, and inspire audiences when watching, whether it’s MYM or “Step Up” or a number of other wish-fulfilling premises. “Step Up” films are unique; I like to think MAKE YOUR MOVE is equally uniquely its own.
Much more at Make Your Move Fans including some pics of Derek with the cast. Note that this is only Part 1. THREE more parts are coming. So, stay tuned.
Our friends over at Make Your Move Fans are reporting Derek will be a guest judge for a popular Korean Dance Show called “DANCING 9″! The appearance might be connected to new promo for Derek’s new movie “Make Your Move 3D”. Here is a little take….
We are wondering if this guest appearance on a popular Korean TV show is the start of promotion for “Make Your Move 3D” in Korea because the tweet mentions Derek as BoA’s co-star in her movie. We think it’s a great idea to start introducing Derek to Korean audiences!
We do too!! To read their fun article in full and to see the tweet that started the buzz, visit this link.
Note: There is still no release date for the US for this movie. Let’s hope we hear something soon.
