After nearly two years since I completed the score for THE CHILDREN'S WAR, it will finally be receiving its world premiere here in Austin with a subsequent screening planned in Houston. I'm really excited to have this film released. It's a very powerful and emotional film featuring stories that need to be told. I'm very proud of the score and can't wait to hear it and see the film in a theater. The DVD release is expected this summer.
Here is the trailer:
