Mike has recorded a song for the film FAVORITE SON, recently acquired for distribution by Panorama Entertainment. Favorite Son stars Pablo Schreiber, who appeared in Woody Allen’s Vicki Cristina Barcelona, and Connor Paolo, who has appeared in films for Oliver Stone and Clint Eastwood.
Mike wrote and re-recorded his song, Gift of the Fathers, which is played over the closing credits, as well as a piano composition which is used earlier in the film. Favorite Son’s director, Howard Libov says, Gift of the Fathers always worked great because it provides a kind of emotional release at the end of a pretty intense story, and I found it just kept growing on me every time I heard it after we placed it in the film. The song itself is about fathers and sons, so it’s just really appropriate for subjects our movie touches on, which shows how families can be built, as they are in our story, from strife. Along with our original score from Murray Attaway, Mike’s song and musical cue work really well! I had the pleasure of working with Mike on a previous film, and so was really happy to continue the collaboration.”
Look for the film this Spring, as it will be screened at the Garden State Film Festival in Asbury Park, NJ, April 2-4 2009.
