IMG Multimedia is currently seeking original fully-produced tunes and instrumental tracks (no samples) to be used as film score in an upcoming student film. The film, directed by Ian Michael Gullett, is structured as a 45 minute TV pilot. Principle photography has been completed, and post-production has commenced.

"Make The Hit," a production of Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, NC that has been shot in HD video, is a TV pilot for an hour long action/drama about a hitman that decides to get out of the business. He takes the first bus to the farthest place he can go and ends up in a coastal NC town, waiting tables and trying to build a new life. But he's broken the rules of his trade, and he can't lie low forever. The Hitman finds friends in the least expected places and sets out with a brand new team to continue his work in the world of contract killing, this time doing things his way. The two lead actors, Nate Panning and Brent Triplett recently won the Comedy Central "Test Pilot" Contest securing their own development deal with Comedy Central.

Most genres will be considered. Artists with direct access to their project files (ProTools, Logic, etc.) are preferred. IMG Multimedia is hoping to find artists willing to help generate actual audio cues rather than just submit completed songs. The Afro-Cuban reggae project See-I has already agreed to lend some of their produced tracks, as well as generate drop-outs, instrumentals, etc. facilitated by their producer/engineer, Thomas Blondet. The best way to get an idea for the music needed will be to watch the trailer and 5-minute preview of the show. Make The Hit is an eclectic mix of humor, action and drama, and the score will represent the same variety.

Upon completion, the project will be distributed widely online as well as submitted to festivals. Please note that songwriters retain ownership over their materials. There will be no financial compensation for this project directly, as it is a student film and cannot be sold for distribution. However, the concept for the show is owned by Ian Michael Gullett, and should the concept be sold and produced professionally, future involvement from artists on the pilot soundtrack may be considered. Compensation will be in the form of screen credit, massive exposure via the internet and festival circuit, copies of the final DVD, and the benefit of working with a group of people actively climbing the indie-film ladder.
