Shovel Buddies stars Bella Thorne, Kian Lawley, Alex Neustaedter and Anton Starkman. The film follows four friends as they spend one unforgettable night fulfilling their friend's final request.

The film features a score by Franco, who has contributed her musical talents to such seminal films as DOPE, The Book of Life, Margarita, Happy Feet and Kung Fu Panda 3. Franco’s score to Shovel Buddies intrinsically complements the film’s fresh voice with its modern and innovative musical textures. The soundtrack was mixed and mastered by Alvin Wee, an award winning Malaysian mixer and producer (Ola Bola, Kingsman: The Secret Service, DOPE).

Described as a “coming-of-age drama” by The Hollywood Reporter, Franco says British directors Si&Ad (Simon Atkinson and Adam Townley) "were always willing to push the envelope to create a hybrid sound of electronica with orchestral elements to fit the film's landscapes on screen. I am thrilled to collaborate with Awesomeness Films on this project."
