Greg Sims composes score for John Avildsen documentary

Greg Sims is in the final stages of composing and producing the underscore for JOHN G. AVILDSEN: KING OF THE UNDERDOGS. Legendary director Avildsen's greatest success was ROCKY, garnering ten Academy Award nominations and winning three, including Best Picture and Best Director. Other films he directed include SAVE THE TIGER, 8 SECONDS, LEAN ON ME and the KARATE KID series. 

The first draft of the film was screened to industry professionals and VIPs November 10, 2015 at the Laemmle Theatre in Los Angeles. The documentary has since undergone significant revisions by its director, Derek Wayne Johnson, with suggestions and input by Avildsen. 

The doc is the second film Sims has scored for director Johnson, the first one being a feature length horror/mystery/thriller, SCRAPE. 

Sims' score for "Underdogs" has already brought high praise from Avildsen himself, who declared, "I couldn't have asked for anything more from the music.
