Gary and I have known each other since college, and he's been the composer on most movies (and a few plays) I've directed or produced since then, starting with 'BIG NIGHT' in 1993 and continuing to 'COMPANY RETREAT' this year. Gary is a musician first - a jazz composer, percussionist, pianist - and a film scorer by way of his other disciplines, which makes him the ideal composer for the very different movies I'm involved with.  His ideas are never what I would expect, which challenges me to make more effective choices in the editing room, and the movies always turn out more layered and provocative as a result. His scores always make the movies better, wider, more compelling.'-C
