synopsis
Desperate to get his music to the masses, high-strung bandleader Dom demands relentless rehearsing! Between practice and perfect, however, lies a minefield of egos, ineptitude, and attitude problems.

director
Sammy James, Jr. is a New York City-based screenwriter and filmmaker. Sammy is the founder and creative force behind NYC garage rock stalwarts, The Mooney Suzuki. Since the early 00’s, the band has released 5 full-length albums, toured extensively with acts like Kings of Leon and The Strokes, and taken festival stages worldwide from Coachella to Fuji Rock. “Alive & Amplified”, the title track to the band’s Columbia Records debut, broke the UK Top 40 and became an international hit, enjoying extensive licensing in ads, TV, film, and video games. Many other Sammy-composed Mooney Suzuki songs have found placement in ads for companies like Nike, Coors, Poland Spring and Suzuki, as well as TV shows including Smallville, Friday Night Lights and Gossip Girl. For Paramount Picture’s School of Rock, Sammy composed the title song performed by Jack Black and the kids in the film’s finale. It's actually Sammy performing the guitar heard when Jack plays in the scene. Mooney Suzuki has contributed original songs and covers to a number of film soundtracks for Columbia Pictures, Disney, and DreamWorks’ #1 hit Tropic Thunder, in which Sammy also performs. Additionally, songs have seen heavy placement in video games like Madden, NHL, Burnout and Shaun White Snowboarding, and recently Sammy created an original score for DKNYJeans.com. When not on the road with Mooney Suzuki, Sammy keeps busy in a number of side-projects, playing guitar in Yeah Yeah Yeah Karen O’s Native Korean Rock, guesting on Strokes’ Albert Hammond, Jr.’s solo album, and collaborating with Dan The Automator in Blues Explosion Russell Simins’ Men Without Pants. In 2008, Sammy was enlisted by MTV for an episode of the Emmy award winning series Made, where he mentored an aspiring young rocker.
