SYNOPSIS:

Winner of the top Jury Prize for “Film of the Festival” (Raindance UK), the Audience Award (Phoenix Film Festival) and short listed for IFP’s Gotham Audience Award, Gary King’s “How Do You Write A Joe Schermann Song” is an original musical that takes a unique look at love, artistic inspiration and relationships through a composer’s journey in writing the score to an Off-Broadway show.  Critics are calling it “a crowd-pleaser” (indieWIRE) and “a hidden treasure” (Twitch). 

When Joe (Joe Schermann) lands an opportunity to write for an Off-Broadway show, he is forced to cast either the love of his life, Evey (Christina Rose) or his newly discovered muse, Summer (Debbie Williams).  The realities of show business prove to Joe that writing is easy, living is hard.  Filled with “catchy tunes and clever lyrics” (Empire Magazine), this is a cinematic experience you won’t forget.
