Super Science Showcase (David James Nielsen)

Digital: iTUNES | AMAZON | SPOTIFY


MovieScore Media’s latest team up with composer David James Nielsen is a unique educational anthology movie designed to teach children through adventures. Produced and directed by Lee Fanning, Super Science Showcase is a multi-platform franchise whose first feature-length movie is composed of five 9-14-minute long episodes. “Cuyahoga River Riders“ deals with astronomy, “The Shocklosers“ is about laws of motion, “Mission: Monsters“ teaches animal classification, “Journal Against the Unknown“ introduces  the scientific method while “Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn – St. Petersburg Adventures“ presents the states of energy to young viewers. 

“Lee had the 90’s TV series theme Amazing Stories by John Williams as a reference, so I set out to create a brand new theme in my own unique way and by using a live orchestra for the theme,“ says David about the project. ”For most segments, the orchestra was the right feel – however, for ‘The Shocklosers’, we decided to go with a 90’s rock feel, mixed with the orchestra. After the initial themes were composed for all of the franchises, it was much easier to make use of them when composing the underscores for each of the shorts.“ The scores range from the horse galloping energy and expressive music for “Cuyahoga River Riders“, to the mysterious and dark music for “Mission: Monsters“ and “Journal Against the Unknown“, to the rhythmically steady and lively music for “Tom Sawyer and “Huckleberry Finn – St. Petersburg Adventures“, to the rock-influenced comical music for “The Shocklosers“.

Calgary-born composer David James Nielsen won the Gold Medal of Artistic Excellence Award for his score to the film Man Vs. Woman in 2008, and the Bronze Medal for Excellence Award for his score to Tales from Beyond at the Park City Film Music Festival. Previous releases with MovieScore Media include the gothic horror anthology Tales from Beyond, the based on a true ghost story Haunting Villisca, The Sailing Channel documentary Tall Ships: The Privateer Lynx and Annabelle Hooper and the Ghosts of Nantucket.
