Regarding these two new projects, Jonathan Elias, founder, Elias Arts, said, â€œWhile many people out there know our company for our work in music for advertising, we also like to keep our hand in the â€˜Hollywoodâ€™ community from time to time as well. We are just finishing up two movie projects, both of which have personal meaning to me. I was the original composer for the 1984 film â€˜Children of the Corn.â€™ I am currently involved in updating the themes I created for that film now, 25 years later, for its remake, again working with Don Borchers. And I also have a long history with Dito Montiel, the director of the new film â€˜Fighting.â€™ I was the composer and the producer of his first film, â€˜A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints,â€™ and I also produced his 1989 record â€˜Gutterboy.â€™ And they say relationships in Hollywood donâ€™t last!â€? more
