(AllHipHop News) Art often imitates life, and that is the case with the upcoming short film Score. The 30-minute movie focuses on a young producer who has experienced tremendous success working with top Hip Hop talent, but he’s met with opposition when he wants to score films on his own.
The premise of Score is loosely based on the life of Grammy nominated producer Sonny Digital. The beat maker behind songs by Future, 2 Chainz, ILoveMakonnen and others will star in the film. Sonny will also provide the score for Score.
“This film is something I wanted to do and be a part of because the storyline is really almost exactly what happened to me when I first started producing. Nobody was trying to give me a chance, folks wouldn’t hit me back about beats I sent out, doors weren’t opening up, nothing was going my way,” says Sonny. “I also like the fact that I get to star in this movie and also do the score, both are firsts for me. I feel like after this project’s released, I’ll get more opportunities doing things like this in the future.”
Score will also feature cameos from Zaytoven, DJ Scream, DJ Toomp and DJ Spinz. An exclusive soundtrack featuring all Sonny Digital-produced beats with a few collaborative efforts will be released as well.
Filming for Score begins August 2015. The producers have set up a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for the movie. Rewards include a digital copy of Score, a copy of the movie’s soundtrack, a thank you credit in the film, tickets to the Atlanta premiere, and more.
