MovieScore Media: Jamesy Boy [2014] - Jermaine Stegall


MovieScore Media will release the moving, urban score for Jamesy Boy, a well-crafted prison drama which received its musical accompaniment by composer Jermaine Stegall. Directed by Trevor White, the film tells the true story of James Burns who typical lived the life of petty criminals among the suburban street gangs of Denver, then suddenly found himself at a maximum-security prison cell surrounded by hardened criminals. There he can chose between survival or taking bigger risks by turning his life around...Starring Spencer Lofranco, Taissa Farmiga, Mary-Louise Parker, James Woods, Ving Rhames and Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, Jamesy Boy opened in select theaters in January and is now available on VOD. Our release coincides with the film’s Blu-ray and DVD premiere on March 11.

Composer Jermaine Stegall attended USC and got his first taste of Hollywood when he interned with composer Marco Beltrami during the hectic post-production of Alex Proyas' I, Robot. Since then, he provided scores for such films as the Warner Bros comedy Efectos Secundarios or Shout! Factory's horror documentary called The Psycho Legacy. On television, his musical contributions appeared in shows like Supernatural and House M.D. Jamesy Boy marks the fifth collaboration between Jermaine and director Trevor White.

The composer remembers the project: "This has been my most involved project with Trevor yet.  We started with a meet about the music and brainstorming a few ideas. We felt the score needed to have an element of cinematic drama as well as urban undertone. It's a pretty raw film with a first time lead actor. A story with many universal truths, and the songs needed a cohesive score tying all music elements together throughout in a complementary way. We had plenty of time and many detailed meetings to collaborate and each moment in the score truly paints the picture of what was told moment by moment."
