Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. It is just constant, rapidly changing technology and different styles of both music and video. In terms of formal training I find the most effective training comes from the factories or equipment dealers in the form of workshops.
Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
A. There is no cookie cutter for the work we do. It can be complicated and subjective. My end goal is to help you create something that makes you ( or your boss ) happy.
I prefer to work by the project, but I can also bill on an hourly basis if I have some of the important details surrounding your project. Please feel free to ask questions.
Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. I have a background in classical music. While attending college I found an interest in meshing classical music with electronic music. I had also come to understand I was really not that good at working in a restaurant.
I have since shot and scored a variety of films and commercials.
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. DP for Documentary Film, Post Production and Media Salvage ( fixing poor quality audio or creating new video from existing projects ).
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. I shot and scored a film in New York with Eli Wallach, Ann Jackson, Holt McCallany and Yancy Butler. What a great group. The director was really excited about the project.
The experience of working with so many solid actors on the same set was incredibly rewarding.
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Bring me in on your project early, I can assist you in planning and preparation for cost and quality control.
Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A. Many people now have access to video and audio equipment with very little or no training at all.The market is flooded with some really poor work. If you need to get your project seen or heard, hire a professional and don't try to cut corners. It's less expensive and more effective.
