Open Letter from Anne Bryant, composer of original TF theme song

I received an email from Anne Bryant this morning, who is the original composer of the popular Transformers theme song from the 1980s animated series. She wanted to express her thanks toward the show of support the Transformers community has shown her. Here is the letter that she wrote to all of you.

An Open Letter from Anne Bryant

Dear Transformers Fans,

Thank you for your support of the Transformers over the years, and thank you for your support of my original Theme Music, which has become associated with the Transformers products and properties. Because of your support, "The Transformers" has truly reached a pop culture status.

I also write to thank you for your many kind and supportive remarks regarding my exhausting, six-year litigation process. The blogs have been favorable, in the main, and I can tell you that your support means much to me in my David versus Goliath struggle to claim the royalties long due to me.

To clear up any confusion here as to my motives and timing, I can say that my investigation into my pathetically negligible royalties for the TF theme began in 1994, six years prior to filing a formal lawsuit in 2000; including that in 1998, I contacted BMI, and then, as instructed, I repeatedly followed their formal inquiry procedures to the letter [for two years], without a single response from them. These big organizations have all of the records, so it is difficult for a composer to unravel problems, or perhaps even to identify honest mistakes, without their help; without their cooperation. As such, frustrated with the lack of response from BMI, I packed up all of my correspondence, proofs, contract numbers, original registrations and payment forms and went to see my attorney. He also tried to get satisfactory information from BMI for several months, but lacking any serious help, we moved to file a formal claim so that we could demand records from them. Concurrent with this, it became evident that my themes and songs [Transformers and others] were being used on a multiplicity of recording products licensed by Sunbow without any accounting statements or royalty payments to me, hence, the scope of this legal action.

As indicated above, in no way was this lawsuit motivated by the new DreamWorks live action movie; the movie was not even a glimmer on the horizon when all of this began. I don’t know whether they plan to use my theme in the new movie, and of course, I would love it if they do, but this litigation is first and foremost about the past and present royalties due; the future for Transformers, Jem, ML Pony and GI Joe and the other themes, if there is one, can be handled when the case is decided or settled.

Additionally, I can tell you that I have no rights to claim royalties for music composed by Ford Kinder, my former partner in our production company, except in any instances that our interests may overlap. We were separate writers -- not collaborators -- who jointly owned a production company we formed to take responsibility for all aspects of the full and final production of music that either he or I composed. As such, we credited any music that we produced through our company to both of us. This we did in order to build our company name. Ford and I wrote and produced several hundred pieces of music each year; this was our profession. Basic fees were paid to our companies for our services as producers, arrangers, *musicians and singers. And always, we were to be compensated, personally, as composers solely through our royalty payments. This is standard in the Commercial Music Business: writers write for royalties; professional writers always retain their royalties. So, this is what I am demanding in my court action: account for and pay the past and present royalties as agreed, and correct the records for the future.

I sincerely hope this will clear up any misunderstandings any of you may have; and I hope you will continue to support my efforts to be fully compensated as I face this well-financed, brutal opponent that would rather pay millions in legal fees, than pay to settle this matter.

See you at the movies: 7-4-7.

With all good wishes,
Anne

* Additionally, you may be interested to know that no "Secondary Market Payments" have been made to union musicians and singers for the use of their performances on TF, JEM and other television themes originally produced for Sunbow and GBI. Sunbow simply lifted these performances onto recording products and licensed them to distributors without making those payments required in their Union Contracts. The Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Musicians are working to recover payment to the performers in actions separate from my lawsuit.

    Chris Ryall of IDW has responded to the rumor about the Transformers and Avengers Crossover in IDW's forum. When asked about the rumor here is what Ryall posted:

    "Among all these crossover rumors, I still like the TF/Alan Moore's Lost Girls rumor the best. of course, I started that one myself at BotCon last year.

    JLA or Avengers, though, eh? I like that people are at least shooting for the best teams, and not something like New Warriors or Captain Carrot's Amazing Zoo Crew. Nothing but the best for TF crossover rumors."


    When asked, "if there was a crossover would it be with the new infiltration versions or a whole new characters?" Ryall reponded with this:

    "Well, it's all speculation at this point."

    Our own shockwaveuk has brought us some bad news for Transformers fans in the United Kingdom. Transforce 2007 has been cancelled. The following message has been posted on the Transforce website:

    "Unfortunately I have had to postpone Transforce 2007. This is mainly due to financial considerations. I hope very much to be able to announce a new date either late in 2007 or in early 2008.

    I hope this does not cause too much inconvenience, and as always thank you all for your continued support.

    Don't forget there is still Auto Assembly 2007!"

    6 Inch Titainium G1 Soundwave Sighted in the US

    Gunbreaker has let us know he has found 6" Transformers Titanium Soundwave at Wal*Mart supercenter in Las Vegas. He also sent us this little review of the figure:

    I can tell you there are some improvements made to this figure since the photos we've seen. Firstly there is a SILVER faceplate, not gold. Looks great, though there are no paint apps on the eyes, and the photos on the box show both the gold faceplate and blue eyes. Secondly, the infamous CODPIECE has beeen toned down too, by having been squared and with grilling for detail. When you are that big, it needs some air, aye? It's still an issue, as it gives this figure a long torso and short legs. Legs are awkward all round, really hurting the look of the robot mode. Poseability is still very limited, but arms and general detail is very nice. All in all a touch more show accurate than G1 release, but a lesser toy as will be evidenced by the upcoming reissue. Much more plastic than die cast. Worth getting if you're a Soundwave/G1 fan.

    No positive sightings of Rodimus Prime yet but him and Soundwave are packaged together as part of the same wave so Keep you eyes peeled! Be sure to post your sightings at the SEIBERTRON.com Sighting Section.
