Looking for composer! Jan. 6th, 2012 @ 01:47 PM Reply

Hey!

As it says in the topic title, I'm looking for a composer for my short film entitled 'Mural' (Though I've been struggling to think of a new name for months now). In a sentence, it's about a kid who wants to play outside with the other kids but is too afraid until another kid gives him a chance.

It's more of a slow film, only around two minutes in length. The music leans more towards classical, and I'm not really looking for anything with drums or a beat. More piano/violin type music!

The most important thing is that I'm able to have free and clear rights to the music so that I can submit the film to any venue/art house/festival. The easiest way to do this would be for you give me a Creative Commons license like Newgrounds has on creativecommons.org!

I don't have any recent screenshots, but there's an in-progress texture test from a few months ago attached to this post, and a few links to my early pre-production stills. I'm almost finished rigging both characters, and am going to start animating as early as Monday!

Thanks :D!

If you are not making any revenue you can use any song from audio portal if you credit the author

Considered that, but when I previously looked for music on the audio portal, it sometimes took days of searching to find what I wanted and usually I ended up settling on something that I didn't like all that much. And if I did win money from this film, of course I'd give some to the composer! Music's an important part, after all.

I have a temporary soundtrack to give anyone a starting point, along with a basic 3D animatic.

Actually it would be very helpful to finish the movie (more or less) and then look for a composer. In my experience, projects in pre-development tend to disappear and then I stand there with half the soundtrack done but the director lost his interest in making his part done.
But those screens look pretty good in my opinion. Right now I don't know if I would also raise my hand for a job or ignore this post for now. More screens or scenes would be helpful. Though you could check out my music, too.

Sorry, I should've specified that this is my senior film, so the chances of it being completed are 99% barring serious injury or death. I absolutely need to finish it. I'm actually going to update the rigs/set, so I'll try taking some screens then. For now I'll post my first lighting test (It's pretty bad, but shows a little more of the set). There's an animatic too with very basic movements, but I'm only going to send that to the composer I choose to see if they're still interested after viewing the film.

@sorohanro: I really like the simple piano in Morning Sun! That's kind of what I have in mind as far as mood/sound goes, before the drums come in.

@Rampant: You're right, it does fit everything! Just don't want to use a track that's been heard in so many other things :(

I have three pieces which might work a bit... not sure. Mind you, I wrote these a while back and my style has changed quite a bit, and I'm not much of a piano-lover, but these three might be something akin to what you are thinking of:

Ok, that's a starting point already :)
I'm glad that you like it. I can customize this one or make something in the same style.

I'm sort of amazed by the amount of skill here! It didn't take me long to find someone whom I felt was well-versed in the genre of music that I needed.

If communications go well, I'm no longer looking for a composer. Thanks for the interest!

Looking for a composer again since I can't contact my previous one! Pretty much everything that's said in the first post, except it's two and a half minutes now. And you'd only have seven weeks instead of the four months I originally wanted to give :/

Here's a recent screenshot from the mostly completed movie. There'll be animation/texturing/lighting fixes, but the timing won't change so you can get started right away!

I can't do it for free (sorry), but if you want a custom score (whether it's along the lines of music box waltz, or even something completely different), please feel free to contact me if you're interested. I think you'll find my rates to be agreeable, and even then we can still negotiate.

Best,
Rampant

I'm very interested in this project. I've recently done some film music for a short college film and have been composing for years. My email's camfloyd@indiana.edu if you want to get in touch.

Also for a short sample of some score i for the previously mentioned film check out my site, the title of the piece is called 'The Fight'. - http://www.wix.com/camfloyd/musicsite#!music

If it's a classical element you're after, give this a listen and let me know if this is along the right track, i could write an original piece for you. I've been dying to do something conceptual for quite a while. (The actual orchestral stuff kicks in about half way through)
