David Tobin and Jeff Meegan, together with Tim Garland, are excited to announce the forthcoming release of:“Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!”, with an original score by the 3 composers.
This follow-up to Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me”, is the first feature film score for Meegan & Tobin. It premieres next week at the Toronto Film Festival.
With the help of playful melodies and understated skillful orchestrations, their original music to “Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!” helps paint the stark sometimes dark truths behind the very intertwined Chicken and Fast Food industries. This helps Morgan Spurlock reignite his clash with the fast food industry in sizzling fashion. In the original movie, Morgan Spurlock took on the McDonald’s and helped fashion a change in the company by throwing light on the way in which huge portion sizes, large amounts of sugar and saturated fat are damaging our health and that of our children.
In the latest movie, Spurlock takes on the main players in the huge U.S chicken industry and deals with the issue of how fast food companies lie to us about what goes into their products. It also sheds light on the tough conditions that chicken farmers are expected to work in and how they are forced into virtual poverty by means of an unfair and corrupt system.
Working With Morgan Spurlock
“It was a pleasure writing with Spurlock and his team,” says David Tobin. “The left-field manner in which the film tackles some rather hard issues presented some fun complexities. Finding the right balance of light heartedness and sincerity while still conveying the solemnity of the issues was a challenge we all really enjoyed”.
We are all delighted to have been involved in such a worthwhile project and we are eagerly looking forward to our next foray into the scoring world
