Recording of the Score Completed!

The score was recorded over a two week period by award-winning sound engineer Evan Richie of Ovation Sound.   Kiesling assembled top professional musicians, many of whom are regular performers in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem Symphonies, to form the Carolina Film Orchestra for the film.  Recording took place at the studios of Ovation Sound and on the Film Scoring Stage at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem.  This stage, specifically constructed for recording of orchestral film scores, has never before been used for a commercial film.
