Very happy to have composed the score to the feature Game Day (2017) directed by my brother John Susman. The movie stars Romeo Miller, Elizabeth Alderfer, Lisa Zane and Fyvush Finkel. We recorded cellist Joan Jeanrenaud at Different Fur Studios and mixed the score at Studio Trilogy in San Francisco with recording and mixing engineer Justin Lieberman.
