“In Last Call at the Oasis, I wanted water to be a character. I wanted it to come across, in a subtle way, as the hero under siege. The obvious approach would be to write a score that mimicked water, but Jeff embraced the challenge of creating music that conveyed emotion as well as texture.”
– Jessica Yu, director
Last Call at the Oasis is a powerful new documentary that shatters myths behind our most precious resource, water. This film exposes defects in the current system, shows communities already struggling with its ill-effects and highlights individuals championing revolutionary solutions.
Emmy award winner Jeff Beal composed a thoughtful and elegant score driven by a strong sense of melody. The outstanding first track perfectly blends together the graphics of the opening title sequence.
