John Paesano scores My All American

Posted on December 11, 2015 by Dan Goldwasser



Last winter, composer John Paesano recorded his score to the inspirational independent football film My All American. Directed by Angelo Pizzo and based on the true story of Freddie Steinmark, the scoring sessions took place at the Sony Scoring Stage and ScoringSessions.com is thrilled to bring our readers photos from the sessions!
