Earth Day can be a time of reflection, education or re-commitment to the world we live in. Lakeshore Records is proud to have partnered with filmmakers and composers on climate change and environmental projects such as through last year’s Before The Flood release in which we, along with composers Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwai, helped raise $10k for terrapass, a charity that works to offset carbon emissions.
This year, we are pleased to present National Geographic’s A Symphony For Our World, which premieres tonight. This, and other Earth Day films below feature music by some of the world’s most celebrated musicians and composers.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Netflix are teaming up on a slate of documentaries and docuseries that will premiere exclusively on the streaming service.
DiCaprio’s Appian Way has signed a multiyear first-look deal for nonfiction projects that will have environmental and conservation themes. The deal covers both original documentaries and docuseries as well as acquisitions.
One of the biggest television premieres in recent history belongs to the Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey series, hosted by Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson. The reboot of the landmark Cosmos series from the 1980s (hosted by Carl Sagan), explores how we discovered the laws of nature and found our coordinates in space and time. Lakeshore Records has produced quite a collection of beautiful celestial and terrestrial-themed film scores created by some of the most recognized Composers in the business.
