DENVER, Colo., October 12, 2011 – Producers of A Day in the Life of America’s Veterans 11.11.11, a full-length documentary film, announced today an open call for composers to write original music to accompany the film.
The producers are seeking music from amateur and professional composers who are willing to donate their work to this important film. Composers interested in submitting materials should send biographical and contact information along with two samples of original work.

All submissions must be received by November 15, 2011.
Composers will be announced by December 31, 2011 and at that time given a rough cut of the film to write music to select sections. *Some composers may be asked to write opening and closing themes, while others might write transitional compositions to carry the film forward. Or one composer could be selected to score the entire film. *The final determination will be made by the film’s producers.
All submitted entries will be considered and evaluated by the executive producers.*
Internationally acclaimed news photographer and independent documentary filmmaker John C. P. Goheen will produce the documentary that chronicles the compelling stories of America’s veterans this coming Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2011.
Goheen said, “Everyone involved with this project should understand that the contributions made will serve to make a difference in not just one veteran’s life but countless others. This project has the potential to impact not only veterans, but family members, neighbors and citizens from around the world.*“
Titled, “A Day in the Life of America’s Veterans 11.11.11,” it will be filmed on November 11th across the country and around the world by volunteer still and video photojournalists. Individual stories featured in the documentary will showcase men and women who devoted a portion of their lives to serve our country in times of war and peace. All the stories will be filmed in one day, on 11.11.11.
This not-for-profit documentary has been made possible with the generous support of Loyola University Chicago; Moots Productions; Network Nirvana; Terranova Pictures, LLC; Pat Woodard Productions; and the World Witness Project.*
Goheen said he and his team of executive producers are exploring additional funding sources and in-kind services as well as opportunities for national broadcast and distribution.* A release date for the documentary is scheduled during Armed Forces Week, May 12-20, 2012.
