Give us the job, the deadline, the budget. We deliver. Simple.
You'd love to commission a composer to create a powerful and engaging soundtrack for your film but you're worried about the budget? Let's talk. Budgets vary hugely depending on what you want. We are here to help.
Specially composed music for television productions typically costs anything between £2,000 and £10,000 for a 60 minute drama or documentary. It can cost more, depending on what you want in terms of music and in terms of licensing rights. Do you want a 40 voice choir, a 30 piece orchestra, or jazz big band, or are you happy for the composer to produce the music with, say, just a couple of other musicians? Is your production a stand-alone film or a series? If it's a series then the cost per episode can be considerably cheaper. Do you want exclusive use of the music around the world for the rest of time or are you happy for an initial period of exclusivity after which the music can be used on other productions? We are very happy to talk; the better we understand what you want, the easier it is for us to quote.
Sometimes the budget simply isn't large enough to hire a composer to score the whole production, but there are ways of enhancing your production by composing music for key scenes that give you a high quality finished product without breaking the bank.
The most important thing is to start with a good conversation about what you are wanting from the soundtrack. Bespoke music is all about creating a unique and original soundtrack that adds real value to the story you are telling, and lifts your production above the others.
You want a short film to showcase your environmental action, but have no idea how to budget for it? We're happy to talk at no obligation to yourselves.
