Paul Mills featured in The Christian Beat

We recently had the opportunity to talk with Paul Mills, the composer for the new feature film Overcomer set to be released in theaters on August 23. The inspiring motion picture marks the anticipated return of filmmakers and brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick after their #1 box-office hit War Room, which Paul also composed. Overcomer is the second film Paul has collaborated with the Kendricks brothers; he wrote the main theme for the inspiring feature as well as five new tracks for the soundtrack, which was released earlier this month. Overcomer follows the story of high school basketball coach John Harrison (played by Alex Kendrick) and his team as they face an uncertain future when their town's largest manufacturing plant shuts down unexpectedly. As hundreds of people move away, John reluctantly agrees to coach cross-country. His outlook soon changes when he meets Hannah Scott (newcomer Aryn Wright-Thompson), a runner who pushes herself to the limit for the biggest race of her life. See below for our full interview with Paul on what it’s like working with the Kendrick Brothers, the most challenging part of the writing process for this film, and his measures of success for Overcomer.
