White Bear PR attended the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival this month in support of Joseph Trapanese and his score to The Raid: Redemption (note: new film title since Sundance). It was a whirlwind press tour which included a late-night screening at the beautiful Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, followed by a press junket and a music panel entitled “Artists Scoring Films” moderated by Phil Gallo of Billboard Magazine.
