"Captain Abu Raed": Jordanian film about mentoring
The director focused the action around the Citadel, Roman ruins on a plateau overlooking the city, often giving the film ($2 million budget) spectacular views. The director actually went into the refugee camps and role-played with kids to find his cast.
The music score was composed by Austin Wintory. The DVD has a short on scoring the film, with a “scoring captain” in Austin’s studio.
The producer explained the process of selling the idea of making film in Jordan to sell to the world.
Here is Neo Classics's site with videos. Neo Classics has a flashy musical ritornel and animation for trademark, but I haven't found it on YouTube yet.
