This is a partial portfolio of some of my film scoring work. I am available for hire (message me in the connect page).
I have a long history of scoring films. Even before I was a singer-songwriter, I was writing music for student films and other video projects. I am comfortable in many styles ranging from symphonic, to acoustic, to electronica, to jazz (see the Stylistic Range page for samples of each). I use East West's massive "Composer Cloud" for the majority of my samples.
So Damn Glad
"So Damn Glad" is a short documentary by Justin Lubke about Ron Losee, a spirited small town doctor that pioneered a number of surgical treatments for common orthopedic injuries.
Cowboy Crickets Kickstarter Campaign
This was a video I self-produced for an edible cricket farm in Bozeman, MT.
"Delibes' Pizzicatti" is a 19th century piece of classical music, and part of the public domain. However, high quality, royalty-free recordings of this and similar classical pieces are difficult to find and license. So instead of purchasing a recording of the piece, I just reproduced it myself using my own sound libraries. This has the added benefit of making the composition totally customizable. In this case, I altered the length of certain sections of the music so it would time up perfectly with my edit.
"American Marimba" is an example of a "soundalike" composition. I edited this section to music from "American Beauty." Of course, I would have never been able to license the actual American Beauty music for my own use, so instead, I created this composition with a similar tempo, instrumentation, and rhythmic elements. Soundalike compositions like this can be very useful when you've already found a piece of music that fits the tone you want for your video, but you know you won't be able to license the track.
