Project Description

Andres Boulton and Marc Jovani work together in the Jersey Shore Shark Attack movie

The movie stars an all-star cast led by Tony Sirico (The Sopranos), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Jack Scalia (Dallas), Joey Fatone (‘N Sync), William Atherton (Die Hard) — and Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino.

Jersey Shore Shark Attack is a television film that aired on Syfy and was written by Michael Ciminera and Richard Gnolfo. It was built around the popularity of the well-known MTV program, Jersey Shore. It was directed by John Shepphird.

The Music was composed by Andres Boulton and Marc Jovani.

Musically speaking, there are three themes for this movie, but there is one clear main theme that gets developed. And that’s a conversation Andres and I were having constantly. How big the theme has to sound, and when does it have to reach the climax, in the movie. It was very important to have a theme that would develop with the Jersey Shore boys/girls. At the beginning of the movie no one believes them, but you can feel they’ll end doing something important, and I think the music played an important roll making them seem more heroes-like as the movie moves forward.

Check out the 4 minutes suite of the soundtrack. There’s the main theme, almost fully developed, coming around minute one. Right after that, it comes the love theme.

What inspired the music for Jersey Shore Shark Attack?

Marc: “Before any note was written, I had a long meeting with Andres. We just finished a project together, where he was the music editor, and things went very well, so we were motivated to start with this one. We established some concepts that had to be musically achieved… Action, Horror, Fun, Love… and I wrote a 3min suite that would contain those emotions. I sent it over and seemed to work for the directors and producers. That was a good starting point, because it had the main themes that would be developed in movie afterwards. Once we had that, everything else was much easier. It was about fitting those themes over the different scenes. We met a couple of times in his studio, to discuss some rewrites, but the whole process went very smooth.”

The movie also stars Jeremy Luke as The Complication, Melissa Molinaro as Nooki, Joey Russo as Donnie, Daniel Booko as Balzac, Audi Resendez as B.J., and Alex Mauriello as J-Moni.
