▶ How long will it take me to get my music?
it all depends on what is needed. If it is something where additional musicians are not required then it takes about a day or two for a commercial, a week or two for a short, and a month to two months for a feature. Generally I can work within your deadline and will give you an honest estimate once I know what’s required.
▶ How much money will it cost for you to score my project?
Every single project presents different challenges so quotes are given on a project to project basis. Generally if your devoting about 8-10% of your total budget to music we are going to be able to work something out.
▶ Can you record a voice over for this film?
Certainly, usually I can package things like voice overs in with your music quote.
▶ Can you write some music before I start filming?
Yes I can. Generally I’m going to need a very strong description of what your looking for before I can do that. Just remember that when a composer is seeing what they are writing to, they can account for every shade of light and every emotion being portrayed on camera.
▶ What is your main software?
Logic is my main DAW. I supplement it with a tonne of third party programs.
▶ Can you do something that sounds just like this other song?
No problem! But there are rules and regulations to this kind of thing so don’t expect it to be exactly the same!
▶ Can you do the sound design also?
Yes, I'm currently set up to do stereo sound design.
▶ Where are you located?
I work out of a sound treated home studio near Bathurst and Bloor in Toronto, Canada. Its an awesome little set up that can handle most projects exceptionally. I’m happy to freelance out of other studios if needed.
