SUPERVISING DIVERSE SOURCES OF INCOME
Julianne Jordan started her music supervision career when director Doug Liman brought her to a little independent movie called Swingers. The film ignited the “swing” craze in the 90s, spawned a new type of vernacular, and pushed the interest in retro swing music into hyperdrive. The soundtrack quickly went Gold and Julianne has not stopped working since.
Julianne has enjoyed fruitful collaborations with Doug Liman on all of the films he has directed, including Go, The Bourne Identity, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. They most recently worked together on Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise for Warner Brothers. Julianne has also supervised such hit films as The Italian Job, Hop and Valentine’s Day.
In 2007, Julianne supervised the blockbuster family film Alvin and the Chipmunks, where she lent her expertise in helping to create an entirely new soundtrack with songs featuring that world-recognized chipmunk sound. Alvin and the Chipmunks became a Platinum-selling soundtrack and earned an American Music Award for Best Soundtrack. She was sought out yet again for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, and her soundtrack album for this film was certified Gold.
The a cappella movie from Universal Pictures, Pitch Perfect, which she co-executive music produced with Julia Michels, was a box office hit and the biggest selling soundtrack of 2013. It reached Platinum status and won the American Music Award in 2013 for Best Soundtrack. She and Julia are now working on Pitch Perfect 2, slated for a summer 2015 release. Other upcoming projects with Julia Michels include Sisters (Tina Fey, Amy Poehler) and an animated musical currently entitled Trolls (Anna Kendrick) for Dreamworks Animation.
Julianne has served 2 terms on the Board of Governors for the Los Angeles Chapter of the Recording Academy and has been awarded two Music Supervisor of the Year Awards from the Guild of Music Supervisors: one in 2011 and a co-Music Supervisor of the Year in 2012 for Pitch Perfect.
No stranger to performing, Julianne is also an accomplished violist who studied her craft at Skidmore College.
