-- Tom Alexander, a keyboardist-
composer based in South Florida, has won the award for Best Musical Score at this year's Cosmic Film Festival in Orlando, Florida for the film, "The Centenarian."
The film was written and directed by Alexander's son Peter, who himself won two Hollywood Florida Film Festival Awards for the film — Best Picture and Best Director. He also won Best Sci-Fi in February at the Global Film Festival in Los Angeles.
"Winning this award is special indeed," Alexander said. "It's not often you are recognized for contributing to your son's film project in this way. His vision and story inspired me to push myself musically. I hope this is just the beginning of many projects together."
The score was engineered and mixed by Emilio Martinez at KETO Music Group Studios in North Miami, Florida.
Alexander has scored for multiple films, TV projects and commercials including an ad campaign for Mike's Hard Lemonade, as well as the films "Philly Flash," and "Stonerville,"
a frat boy comedy for which he co-wrote the screenplay. "Stonerville"
starred Patrick Cavanaugh, Pauly Shore and comedy legend, Leslie Nielsen, in his final screen appearance. Alexander is also the co-founder of the jazz fusion group, Earth Code.
