Mark McAdam: Films

Men of a Certain Age

This was a gorgeous, dramatic, funny, series on TNT. I made all the music for Season Two. Now I miss it.

With Ray Romano, Andre Braugher, and Scott Bakula.

Paper Man

Paper Man has been described as a coming-of-middle-age story.  It's funny and gorgeous and and it sneaks up on you in the most beguiling of ways.  Set for release in Spring 2010, it is (obviously) near and dear to my heart.  Find a way to see it!  I wrote the score and several of the songs and enjoyed every minute of the work.

Starring Jeff Daniels, Lisa Kudrow, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone, Kieran Culkin, Eric Gilliland.

Original Music by Mark McAdam

Written & Directed by Kieran and Michele Mulroney.

Pool Party

An exploration of Williamsburg's McCarren Pool, this is a surprising and fascinating documentary.  You probably know it from all the concerts held there recently but you probably don't know about its controversial history and its usefulness as a symbol for gentrification and racism.

With performances by Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, MGMT, The Hold Steady, and many more.

Original Music by Mark McAdam

Directed by Beth Aala

Executive Producer Morgan Spurlock

Coming Soon!

In Smog & Thunder

Based around Sandow Birk's epic series of paintings about a fictional war between Northern & Southern California.  Couched as a Ken Burns style documentary, it is hilarious and mind-boggling.
