What are your rates? Are you flexible about it?
Each project is unique and requires a different time frame, skills, resources, etc. BUT, my rates are flexible to work with your budget. It's important to talk about these things, so let's chat!
What do you score? Shorts? Features? Animations?
Simply put I score EVERYTHING. Short films, feature lengths, animations, trailers, commercials, video games and more.
I don't think I can afford live musicians, but I don't want a fake sounding score, what should I do?
While technology can't replace a real orchestra or live musicians, it's doing a darn good job of trying. Let me know what you need specifically, and we'll find a solution. It's what I do.
Where can I hear some samples?
Samples of previous work are right HERE. There you'll find music in many different styles from many of my previous projects.
I need a composer with experience, Do you have credible work history and references?
Of course! You can read many testimonials here, from previous clients as well as general feedback about myself and my work as a film composer.
Will you sign an NDA?
Do bears...Yes, yes I will.
Should I wait until post-production before contacting a composer?
NO. Just....NO. The composer should be brought on board as soon as possible. This way I can talk to you about the project before hand, we can both get ideas for it and really have a deep understanding of the project and know exactly what we need to do when the time comes. Also, my schedule can fill up rather quickly, so please do not hesitate to contact me!
My composer quit, we had a falling out, we disagreed too much, was abducted by aliens...can you James Newton Howard this?? The deadline is coming up!
Yes! I've had to "rescue" a few projects before, it's not always easy but we can do it. I'll grab a few espressos and we'll talk about what we need. Send that NDA, grab a chair and let's do this.
