Today we have an exclusive preview of the score by Oscar-nominee John Debney ("The Passion Of The Christ").

Director and executive producer Matt Schrader and executive producer Trevor Thompson have thus far used their personal savings to fund the movie, after first discussing working on a documentary together while classmates at the University of Southern California. "There's clearly a sacrifice there," says Schrader, who left a career in journalism in Sacramento to work on "Score." "Trevor and I have both had to do some freelance stuff here and there to keep the money flowing." (Full disclosure: I was acquainted with Schrader. »
