Max & Me
Spencer Proffer is quarterbacking the music for an independent, inspirational, poignant animated film with a leading Mexico City-based production partner - Dos Corazones (http://variety.com/2014/film/news/mexicos-dos-corazones-unveils-ambitious-faith-based-slate-1201276304/).
Spencer also produced and arranged the two key tracks that play a pivotal role in the film:
- You Will Find It, performed by young Disney star of their Girl Meets World hit series, Sabrina Carpenter (http://www.sabrinacarpenter.com/), (http://disneychannel.disney.com/girl-meets-world). Sabrina is a fast rising Disney personality who will be taking the lead role in a forthcoming Disney movie.
- The film's theme and title song - Here In My Heart, written by David Pomeranz ((http://davidpomeranz.com/career/biography). Spencer recorded the song with one of the most respected voices in pop music - Ann Wilson - lead singer of multi platinum band, Heart, who played on the track (https://www.heart-music.com/). The recording is engineered by Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, http://www.meteor17.com/from_other_side_glass.php). Pomeranz performs the duet vocal with Wilson, which will be released to the public in 2017.
The story unfolds through a modern day encounter of an older man, Gunter, with a young rebel, DJ in Santa Barbara. It utilizes the story of of a priest, Father Maximilian Kolbe, to teach DJ to allow others to help him back on track via flashbacks, utilizing the example of St Max and his good deeds in Poland throughout the 20th century. It culminates with St. Max giving his life in Auschwitz for a Jewish prisoner as a supreme sacrifice.
The stellar team assembled by producing partners Pablo Barroso and Claudia Nemer of Dos Corazones, include director/writer Bruce Morris (Hercules, Pocahontas, Princess and the Frog, Finding Nemo); Art Designer, Marec Rritzinger (Hercules, Tarzan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame), Composer Mark McKenzie (Spiderman, Ice Age, Robots, The Ultimate Gift) and Layout Supervisor, Dave Sidley (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe).
