UFC, MMA Composer Signs on to Score Horror-thriller ‘Body Farm.’
KVT Productions and Nickel 17 Films welcome composer Mikey Rukus to the Body Farm family.
Body Farm, a psychological thriller feature film shot in and around Pittsburgh, PA, completed principal photography in June 2017 and is moving through post-production.
The addition of Rukus to the team adds another dynamic voice to the film.
“Mikey brings experience, diversity, and a heck of a lot of ideas to the film. His voice will definitely be heard and motivating in the final cut,” said co-director Nicholas LaMantia.
Mr. Rukus, front man for the band No One Hero, comes to Body Farm being the go-to composer for custom music in the mixed martial arts world including the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Fansided.com named his music for Colin “Freakshow” Fletcher as one of the greatest MMA walkout songs of all time.
Mr. Rukus’ work currently airs on NBC Sports, the WBC in Mexico City, and
Revolution Pro Wrestling in the UK.
“I am extremely excited to be a part of the Body Farm team. After viewing the rough cuts, it is apparent that Brandon, Nicholas, and [the] team have poured their heart and soul into this project, and I can’t wait to dig in, help tell their story, and hit the
audience triggers of fear, panic, and adrenaline,” adds Mr. Rukus.
Body Farm stars Brandon Keenan, Nicholas LaMantia (Everyone Must Die!, ), Tom Mirth (The Otherside), and John Iwanonkiw
(The Mutineer) in small roles.
