Doll Factory Review in C47 Houston

Doll Factory Review in C47 Houston

“One of the aspects of this movie that also moved this project to a new level of movie making for this team is the use of professional scoring by Houston composer Scott Szabo. Mr. Szabo’s work includes a who’s who of television and movie endeavors. From the beginning of the movie until the end and including the remix during credits, Scott set the mood, pace and atmosphere of “Doll Factory” with his style of composition and creativity. The score wasn’t overbearing, it was leveled appropriately to compliment the scenes and carry the movie forward. Also, the music was genre appropriate and consistently so throughout the movie. Great job!”
