Scoring for screen media.

Our Music

Documentaries

What I love about documentaries are the interesting stories and ideas. Documentaries pose the musical challenge of how to support the viewers' understanding of the different perspectives presented while honouring each of the interviewees unique contributions. In other words, keeping it real and not being melodramatic.

Television

Dramatic

Extreme emotion is what dramatic film and television is all about. You want the audience to be on the edge of their seats with suspense one moment and choked up with tears the next. I once heard that music makes up 30% of the emotional content of a film!

Film

Games/Interactive

You've got action games, slash 'em and whack 'em games, adventure games, games requiring incredible thumb skills... Music needs to enhance the game play and sound cool otherwise, what's the point of spending those extra bytes on music?! As games and interactive media become more sophisticated, so must the music.
