Karyn Rachtman has worked on some of the most critically acclaimed films of our time such as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Get Shorty, Boogie Nights, Clueless, Bulworth, and Reality Bites. Her ability to match the director’s vision to a soundtrack is extraordinary.
Rachtman has collaborated with Quentin Tarantino, Amy Heckerling, Ben Stiller, Warren Beatty, Barry Sonnenfeld, Robert Rodriguez, Paul Thomas Anderson, Allison Anders, Mike Nichols, Lisa Cholodenko, and Andrew Davis and has served as music supervisor and/or executive soundtrack producer on projects that collectively sold more than 40 million copies in the United States alone.
Her company, One Gazillion, is comprised of three divisions. Mind Your Music, the music supervision arm of the firm, specializes in soundtracks for today’s hottest movies. Hip Kid Hop has released the first-ever series of Read & Rap-A-Long children’s books packaged with CD singles, all of which have been written and performed by hip hop stars. You Rock will offer a book and CD series, each of which will relate to the content of the standardized tests used in most states and make learning more hip. The first installment in that book/CD series is “You Rock: The SAT Vocabulary.”
Rachtman states “I only do movies where a person will walk out of the theater and say, ‘I’ve got to have that record!'” Rachtman says. “I make souvenirs you just have to own.”
