My goal is to work with you to create incredible music that tells your story in a way that words can't. When it's all said and done, you want to make a lasting impression on your audience.

MY PROCESS AND WORKFLOW
Together, we will come up with the overall vision for the score, dream up possibilities in the music and instrumentation, and decide what the music should aim to achieve.
This is where I put my head down and start to create the score. We will nail down a small section of the music before we move on to the rest of the score.
Once we are happy with the initial direction, I will craft the rest of the score. We will do two rounds of revisions to ensure that you are happy with the score.
You will receive a dropbox link where you can download all the necessary deliverables. (i.e. mixed and mastered WAV files, STEMS [if needed], License Agreements, Cue Sheet information)
These terms are in place so that I can create the best music for your project.
When I complete the first version of a cue, I will provide a link where time stamped comments can be made addressing any revisions you have. If necessary, I provide three rounds of revisions for each cue. It is important to be as specific and thorough as possible during the revision process.
It's rare, but occasionally a total rewrite is needed if the initial idea misses the mark. If a total rewrite of a cue is requested, I will use my judgement to decide if I failed to adhere to the original vision (emotion, genre, instrumentation, purpose) we decided on in the beginning phase of the project. If it is evident that I miss the mark, I will provide a rewrite. To prevent this from happening, it is important to be as clear as possible about musical direction, genre, energy, instrumentation, tone, etc when you fill out the project kick-off form. That way you end up with something that meets and exceeds your expectations.
The timeline is important on every project. We will set a fixed timeline with a start date and end date. Within that timeline we will establish when I will need the assets and when you need the final mixes.
When you hire me to write the score for your film you will get a fully original score. Temp scores can be helpful for establishing a baseline direction, but I will not recreate or copy the temp score. I can, however, use the temp score for overall inspiration for tone, mood, genre, etc.
