Richard James Di Paolo is the Composer on Out Of Focus. Richard played music in elementary school starting with the alto saxophone. At the same time, his mother decided to teach him the piano and by the time he had reached 6th grade, he started to write his own jingles and tunes. At Linden High, Richard joined the marching band, concert band, stage band, and the jazz band. During those years, Richard’s music teacher moved him to the baritone horn, where he ultimately became the horn captain in his senior year. During his years with the United States Navy, Richard discovered new aspects about his musical talent, producing hip-hop instrumentals and writing poetry – a means of relaxing while in the open sea. Realizing that his poetry and music in combination created an interesting sound, he joined with an old high-school friend and together they produced, recorded, and performed underground hip-hop music all across the tri-state area.

BORN IN: Secaucus, New Jersey
HOMETOWN: Los Angeles, CA – Linden, NJ
PERSONAL NOTE: Richard moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the film score industry. Out Of Focus is his first major film score and he is looking forward to many more.

The Premiere Screening of Out of Focus will take place on December 8th at the Harkins Valley Art Theater in Tempe, Arizona. The screening will be followed by a private party at the Martini Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona.
