DC: Your brother, Danny Elfman, scored Hipsters, Gangsters, Aliens and Geeks, correct?
RE: Yeah—and on a modestly budgeted film it really helps when your little brother is Danny Elfman. Hipsters is a ninety-minute film with a mammoth seventy-five-minute soundtrack. And Danny laughed and howled at his nephews’ comedy every damned minute. Also, my buddy Ego Plum (Guerrero) did the music with Danny. He and Danny work with the same people, like arranger (Oingo Boingo lead guitar) Steve Bartek. Ego is Hollywood’s TV cartoon genius, presently scoring and music editing all the SpongeBobs plus other top shows. We have a band together—Mambo Demonico; it’s on the soundtrack. In a few weeks we’ll go to Belgium to mix in state-of-the-art Auro 3D surround. Although I prefer seeing Hipsters in a theater, our game boys and girls will get mind-blowing 9.1 surround in their headphones.
