"Henry & Me," to which Denver audiences will receive a Special Sneak Preview, is the story of a young boy battling illness who is taken on a magical adventure by a stranger named Henry. On their journey, the boy meets New York Yankee legends, both past and present, who give him lessons about baseball and life. "Henry & Me" also features Danny Aiello and Luci Arnez, plus songs by The Jonas Brothers. Alex Rodríguez, Reggie Jackson and Yogi Berra each make star cameos as themselves in this family-friendly animated film.
According to Film Music Magazine and The Scoreboard, Denler holds the record for having more upcoming films than any other film and television composer to date. With nearly 100 films and television programs to his credit, Denler's multiple Emmy Award-winning music can be heard all over the world. His ability to work in a wide variety of genres and his collaborative work sense have made him a top choice among producers and directors. He was recently awarded the 2011 Jean Ribaut Award for Excellence in Music at the Beaufort International Film Festival in Beaufort, South Carolina.
