Los Angeles, CA, May 16, 2012 -- When Angel Mendoza, Music Supervisor at AV Squad, needed a powerful, emotionally moving track for the trailer promoting the film “Bully,” he called The Hit House, a premier, custom music and sound design company. NOTE: That trailer just received a 2012 Golden Trailer Award nomination for “Best Documentary Film Trailer.”

“I knew The Hit House would bring the right emotional quality to the trailer,” said Angel. “Their remarkable track record was only part of it. I also knew that Scott (Scott Miller, Creative Director at The Hit House) would be inspired by the subject matter, and would deliver a track that truly captured the poignancy of this important project.”

“The moment I saw the ‘Bully’ footage, I knew what needed to be written,” said Scott Miller. “It isn’t often that you get a chance to compose music for a cause you’re passionate about. And it’s even less often that you get a chance to work on a project that has the power to make a real difference in peoples’ lives.”

The Weinstein Company’s acclaimed film “Bully,” written and directed by Lee Hirsch, which was released in theatres March 30, follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories from the film include two families who have lost children to suicide, and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter, who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus.

With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals' offices, “Bully” offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children. As teachers, administrators, kids and parents struggle to find answers, the dire consequences of bullying -- through the testimony of strong and courageous youth -- is examined in the documentary. Through the power of these stories, the film aims to be a catalyst for change in the way we all deal with bullying as parents, teachers, children, and society as a whole. See:
