Original score from the 2021 documentary feature film directed by Steve Ecclesine, produced by Smart Show Entertainment, released by Falling Forward Films (USA).
THE STORY: A unique cinematic journey that puts a human face on the most terrifying disease of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, shining a light on issues that affect 50% of Americans over the age of 55.
THE SCORE: “When Steve Ecclesine approached me to create a score for his documentary about his childhood friend, Greg O’Brien, dealing with Alzheimer’s, I immediately thought this film is not just about the disease, but about the community that supports Greg. In that spirit, I approached two great composer friends of mine: Chad Cannon (American Factory) and Jesse Carmichael (Maroon 5) to ask if they would help me co-score this beautiful documentary. They fell in love with the story of struggle, courage and love as I had done. One of my dearest school friends has struggled with Alzheimers over the last few years and has declined rapidly, so it is a personal matter for me. I am hoping this film will help and comfort those too who have friends or relatives suffering and help us defeat this disease.” – Timothy Williams
