Up to Snuff is a 2019 documentary film about musician and composer W. G. Snuffy Walden, written, directed and produced by Mark Maxey, produced and edited by Gino Scofidio.[1][2][3][4]

Following his years as a touring and session musician and an Emmy nomination for the "Theme from Thirtysomething",[5] Walden scored numerous television series, including Roseanne, Ellen, My So-Called Life, Felicity, Early Edition, Sports Night, The West Wing, George Lopez, I'll Fly Away, The Stand, Huff, Once and Again, Friday Night Lights and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.[6]

Plot[edit | edit source]

Up to Snuff is a story of redemption.[7] Snuffy's journey began like many musicians in the ‘60s and ‘70s, immersed in the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" lifestyle of touring musicians. Snuffy found sobriety and quietly transitioned into a composer, scoring music for more than 80 television programs.[8] Up To Snuff is the story of that metamorphosis, as told by Snuffy's friends, colleagues and collaborators including Aaron Sorkin, Martin Sheen, Tom Arnold, Timothy Busfield, Lawrence O'Donnell, Joshua Malina, Fred Savage, Ed Asner and musicians Eric Burdon, Steve Lukather, Tris Imboden, and Mike Post.[9]
