KeepMoving Records: STRANDED - Stanislas Syrewicz


Directed by Charles Beeson, Stranded is a stylish and entertaining two-part television adaptation of The Swiss Family Robinson, originally produced for Hallmark. The 2002 version starred actor Liam Cunningham, Brana Bajic, Emma Pierson, Andrew Lee Potts, Neil Newbon and Jesse Spencer as the self-reliant family who discover an exotic paradise while being threatened by pirates. Shot on real Southeast Asian locations on Thailand, the film features not only family drama, but lots of swashbuckling action, especially in its second half when the pirates stage a raid on the family's property.


The score for Stranded was written by Polish-born composer Stanislas Syrewicz, a veteran of film and television scoring. Syrewicz studied at the Warsaw Academy of Music, but he was also awarded a second diploma in stage directing from the Academy of Theatre. The composer’s first television score was written for Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, an American/Polish co-production. Syrewicz and his family left Poland in the early ‘80s. The young composer was signed by Island Records where worked with performers like Marianne Faithful, Jon Anderson and Diane Keaton. Since the 1980s, Syrewicz has built up a strong portfolio of television credits that include programs like In the Company of Whales for Discovery, Stalin for HBO or Crime and Punishment for NBC. His feature movies credits includes collaborations with such directors as John Frankenheimer, Ken Russell, Ferdinand Fairfax and Julian Fellowes.
