Continuing to explore the music of the most talented and exciting new film composers, MovieScore Media proudly presents Jeff Toyne's original score from the upcoming horror thriller Shadow in the Trees online as well as on CD distributed by Screen Archives (http://www.screenarchives.com). Since the launch of the label in 2006, MovieScore Media has released 22 film scores – of these, 13 has been debut albums for the composers involved and all of them have received a lot of critical acclaim.
Perfortmed by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra and featuring the leading Canadian women's choir, Elektra, the score for Shadow in the Trees is a classic, elegant and exciting listening experience. It features a strong main theme and makes use of several other secondary themes, and all of the music is beautifully orchestrated with violin solos playing an important role throughout the work. Besides his work as a composer in his own right, Jeff Toyne has orchestrated some of the most exciting action scores to come out of Hollywood in recent time, including Edward Shearmur's Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and Klaus Badelt's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Shadow in the Trees is the first full-length feature film directed by Chris Smith, whose personal experience (losing his father who gave his life to save a young boy from drowning) led to the screenplay and realization of the story about a boy who is suddenly left without a family when his father disappears. The film is produced by TJ Films and stars Chris Smith, Danny Tilles, Nick Smith, Kevin Novotny and Dave Hamilton.
