Filmproducers Bo van Scheyen and Kees Vermeer from the Dutch movie “Uit Huis” (Moving Out) found in “Take Me Home” from Sound of Lighthouse the perfect song for their story! The movie is about a teenager who is on the verge of making an almost impossible choice. To leave home. His mother is addicted to alcohol and drugs. Welfare is worried about him as he is a very talented young man and offer him to step out of it and focus on his own life. A very tough decision to make. The movie “Moving Out” will be presented next month during Filmfestival By The Sea.
The song “Take Me Home” is about someone dreaming of a place “where thoughts and fears are dying, where hopes and dreams are flying”. A peaceful place that we call home and feel safe.
Composer Josie: “I have longed for such a place for a long time myself, but during my search I discovered this place is with me. Sometimes we need to leave a certain situation or place to find ourselves. What we really want and need in life. Even when it seems impossible at first.
Producer Bo van Scheyen was moved when she heard the song for the first time. “I knew we had found the perfect song for our movie”.
