David Kitay scores Date Movie
23-Mar-2006 - David Kitay scores Date Movie for writers/directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Starring Adam Campbell, Allyson Hannigan, Eddie Griffin, Fred Willard and Jennifer Coolidge, the film is a spoof of the hit romantic comedies of recent years. 20th Century Fox released the film in February, and Lakeshore Records released the accompanying soundtrack on March 7, which includes a version of the theme song to The Price Is Right performed by David Kitay. The Date Movie score was designed to operate on two levels. Although it sounds authentic to the familiar images of romance, it also conveys the humor of the spoof.

Date Movie is the latest in a series of hit comedies Kitay has done since early in his scoring career. After solidifying his reputation in the teen genre with hit movies like Clueless, Can't Hardly Wait, Scary Movie, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Dude, Where's My Car?, Kitay kept his sense of humor and expanded into independent film. Two upcoming releases, Art School Confidential and Darwin Awards, are the next examples of off-beat, interesting films Kitay has done for a variety of innovative directors. Showing remarkable innovation, his score for Finn Taylor's upcoming Darwin Awards is the world's first retrograde reverse score, wherein the music was performed backwards and digitally reversed to play forwards, so the notes sound reversed even though they are accurate.

Kitay has also completed scores for Relative Strangers, starring Ron Livingston, and John Cosgrove's comedy ensemble Caffeine, both set for release this year.

Among other honors, David has received four prestigious BMI awards, several for his scores for the hit TV series Mad About You. In addition to scoring, David has recently produced records for such artists as The Boxing Ghandis, Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles) and David Baerwald.
