First off, we are the luckiest ducks to be involved with The Lego Movie and all the amazing people we’ve met and worked with along the way. Everything truly is awesome when you’re part of a team. Corny… we know. And we’re okay with it.
Back in the fall of 2012, the demo below, written and produced by Shawn Patterson was sent to us. Warner Bros. asked us to help make the song the best it could be, to which we replied, “Sounds like fun!” And it was!
We didn’t hear back from Warner Bros. for almost a year, but when we did, we were told they loved our re-write and production. Directors, Chris Miller and Phil Lord along with editor, Chris McKay, had been using our demo of the song as they were working on the movie and said it was the version they wanted! We said, “AWESOME!” Here is our demo.
We are so grateful to have been given the opportunity to co-write & produce “Everything Is AWESOME!!!” and to be part of The Lego Movie team. Here is our final version of the song, produced by Bartholomew (Josh). It plays in the scene in The Lego Movie, The Lego Movie official trailers, TV spots and video games.
Huge thanks to Warner Bros., Niki Sherrod, Chris McKay, Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Shawn Patterson. We love being part of the team!
