“I dreamed of a day where I get to write a epic, thematic orchestral score for a period drama, and
that dream seemed just so far away. But years later, I met Field Of Lost Shoes,” described Wiedmann. “During the spotting session, I realized I was about to get the chance to write my dream.
As I discussed the tone of the film with the director Sean McNamara, editor Jeff Canavan and producer Brandon Hogan, I knew it would be that sweeping, epic, orchestral score that I dreamed of composing.”
Field Of Lost Shoes is based on a true story of the American
Civil War, culminating at the Battle of New Market, May 1864.
A group of teenage cadets, sheltered from war at the Virginia Military Institute, must confront the horrors of an adult world when they are called upon to defend the Shenandoah Valley. Leaving behind their youth, these cadets must decide what they are fighting for.
The movie’s title refers to the moment when 257 young VMI cadets charged successfully through a soggy wheat field toward Yankee positions—even as many of their shoes remained stuck in the mud—forcing the Union forces to withdraw. The film stars David Arquette, Tom Skerritt, and Jason Isaacs.
“Our film was elevated from the moment we walked into Freddie’s lair,” said Jeff Canavan (Editor, Co-Producer). “Rarely does the magic and inexplicable relationship between music and film find as happy a marriage as it did on Field Of Lost Shoes.. No film or music school can teach the art form.”
