MovieScore Media kicks off 2011 with Cool Dog soundtrack.
Soundtrack Features Stephen Edwards’ Charming
Score For the Family-Friendly Film
Coinciding with the release of the film on DVD, Moviescore Media has released the Cool Dog --
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The film features the original music composed by Stephen Edwards
(Feast, Lionheart, Ninja). Cool Dog was directed by Danny Lerner, whose 2007 film
Finding Rin-Tin-Tin also features music by Edwards (soundtrack available from Moviescore Media).
The world’s most famous German shepherd travels to ‘The Big Apple’ for a series of adventures.
Jimmy, a vibrant ten year-old boy, lives in the tranquil town of Eagle Rock, Louisiana, with his father,
stepmother and, most importantly, his best friend—a German shepherd named Rainy.
When Jimmy’s father gets a promotion, the family must relocate to an apartment in New York City
that has a strict ‘no pet’ policy. Unwilling to let his master go without a fight,
Rainy embarks on a cross-country journey to New York—but navigating the Big Apple
is just the beginning of his challenging adventure.
The film features a charming orchestral score by Edwards. “I felt – and director Danny Lerner agreed, that we
would be short-changing this movie if we didn’t score with a live orchestra,” Edwards described.
“It’s a family film about a dog and the warmth and human quality of an orchestra is a perfect way to convey
the heart and emotion of the story.”
Edwards would approach the score as if it were a ‘theme and variations.’ Even within the use of recurring
themes, there is a lot of variety to the score, from more lyrical themes “No Girl Splat”, to physical comedy
“Mayhem Flour” and even bullfighter music. “Since Danny, Boaz Davidson, Selena Arizanovic and the rest
of the Nu Image team really liked the score for Rin-Tin-Tin, they were open to many of my creative ideas
for the film,” Edwards added.
