MONTREAL, June 3, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian music company, Apollo
Studios (apollostudios.com), has created another memorable original composition screened at this
year's Cannes Film Festival, Short Film Corner. Apollo Studios has
collaborated with director Guillaume Blanchet on his short film,
"Bounce, this is not a freestyle movie". "Let's Bounce" & "The Credit
Song" , the tracks for the film, were written and performed by in house
composer Etienne Gaudreau as well as Apollo Studios longtime
collaborators, Dominic Voyer and Montreal based hip hop artist B.U.
Just like many other Apollo hits, the track on Blanchet's film has
received such great feedback that it has been made available to the
public on iTunes.

"The film was shot somewhat in a music video style with fast vignettes.
The track had to compliment the pace and story being told" said Apollo
Studios CEO Philippe Aubert Messier. "The choice was obvious to work
with Voyer and B.U", added Messier. The song is an original composition
recorded in Apollo's Montreal based studio, they have additional
studios and offices in Toronto, LA and most recently New York..
The film accompanies Blanchet on a two-year journey around the world
with only his faithful companion, a soccer ball. "Bounce turned out to
be a combination of things I value most: travel, filmmaking, soccer and
friendship", Guillaume Blanchet said. The short film takes viewers on
Blanchet's great journey through sun, sand and snow with the
thoughtfully composed track brilliantly supporting the story
Hip hop artist B.U, featured on the "Let's Bounce" has spent a decade
performing and collaborating with big name stars including A-Kon,
Elephant Man, T.O.K., Rah Digga and Freeman and is now set to release
his first solo album.
Apollo Studios is no stranger to Cannes, having previously worked on the
music for award winning television campaigns that won at the Cannes
Lions Festival, including last years Louis Vuitton campaign featuring
