Prof. Wurzbach Composes Score For Documentary Film

George Wurzbach, specialist professor in the department of Music and Theatre Arts, composed the original music score for the documentary film, “If You Tell Anyone,” directed by three-time Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker Dean Love.

“If You Tell Anyone” is a powerful and cautionary story about the complexities of childhood trauma and its aftermath. The film is based on the true story of Australian born author/actor Nathan Spiteri, adapted from his memoir “Toy Cars; One Man’s Journey from Trauma to Triumph” and his highly acclaimed TEDx Talk about how to heal in the aftermath of childhood sexual abuse.

Spiteri is telling his story to inspire other abuse victims to speak up and get the help they need while also helping parents recognize the dangers and symptoms of a child who may be being sexually abused. Today, Spiteri is an actor, writer, and successful motivational speaker living in New York City.

The production team worked with psychologist Norman Fried, Ph.D., who served as a consultant on and off camera. As a trauma specialist, Fried brought his expertise to the film to help viewers understand the psychological impact of childhood trauma.

“If You Tell Anyone” is currently being entered in film festivals around the world. Watch a trailer for the film featuring Wurzbach’s score.
