The Invisible Nightclub’s Original Soundtrack to the new South African film Skoonheid will be traveling abroad again with its recently announced inclusion in the official selection of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
An Afrikaans language film, Skoonheid premiered internationally at the 64th annual Cannes Film Festival where it was selected for Un Certain Regard.
The Invisible Nightclub composed and produced the film’s soundtrack, which was recorded with a live orchestra and completed production at Malakoff Studios in Paris, France.
Within the last 12 months the Invisible Nightclub has scored the music to a host of productions ranging from Adidas’ Unite Mzansi Unite campaign, to the local documentary, Die Takhaar met die Bontkar, which won the DFA My Town award at the 2010 Encounters Documentary Film Festival. That was followed by double campaign for Virgin Active with Nomad Productions. The campaign titled “Stories’ was aired nationally in theatres and on television.
Most recently The INC collaborated with award-winning commercials director Robin Goode (of brandhouse pappa wag vir jou fame) in composing the soundtrack to KIA’s latest Picanto campaign titled “Awesome’, produced by Giant Films, for Singh & Sons.
Ben Ludik, the company’s founder, majored in Graphic Design at Stellenbosch University, having always had a vocation for music and launched The Invisible Nightclub in January 2010. Over the past 12 months he has also established himself as a prominent, Cape Town based DJ.
He is a collaborator with the Fiction DJ Bar’s Untamed Youth and The Assembly Nightclub’s Discoteque.
