Commissioned by Salon Pictures for Discovery Jake was asked to compose the score for this moving and inspiring feature doc. The film recounts the journey of a father and his son who has a terminal illness. The score had to help to support the story without getting in the way. This was a deeply emotional project for all concerned and the story needed to come from the people experiencing the reality, rather than the audience being led by the score.
Jake wrote for full orchestra and electronics to capture the emotion, power and drive of the father and son. Recorded in Prague and mixed at Air Studios.
The film and soundtrack won various festival awards in the US, Canada and Europe and we managed to dramatically increase awareness regarding Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
