Hello all~

I am a composer seeking to expand my body of work. I have a wide range, and somewhat of a more classic sound...any who, I enjoy writing and researching for many types of projects. Film, video, or just simply a listening experience. I strive to always make my music as original as possible, so shoot me a message sometime if you would like to chat scores, music, or discuss writing some cues for a project~!

I do have a webpage, samples and all of that good stuff, feel free to check it out~

    Well those could be any number of combination of drums. First off, I love the score from TMNT by John Du Prez. The drums may be some sort of Taiko drum, they usually have a soft tone to them but it's possible those could have been recorded and mixed to give them that very reverbish timbre they have. Taiko drums are cool, they are Japanese based and come in all...

    I believe anything in the public domain realm is fair game. Where it gets complicated is using a performance of that song done by an orchestra/ group of people that would charge a fee for that royalty. You could in theory perform and record note for note the song you want, but thats a challenge in it's own. There wouldn't be infringement for the usage of notes....

    I see what you mean. It sounds like you might be in the trial and error zone. Unfortunately it comes down to this sometimes~ I was searching for a particular drum one time after having heard it on a score. After trying all the traditional drums used, I literally had to go into a world instruments library and try out, one by one, each of Africa's 100 different...

    Well I understand where they are coming from. There have been many instances when I'm listening to a cue and an instrument beyond the scope of the traditional orchestra pops in, and you do end up saying "what in the world is that?". It does help to identify instruments correctly, as they can become part of your own ensemble. What I was saying before was learn...

    Haha I know what you mean. To be honest, there really isn't much of a substitute for simply researching and learning about an orchestra, it's ensemble, and what their instrumental tonal qualities are. An app cannot tell the difference between a piccolo and a flute, or the difference of two different kinds of harps, or be able to identify an instrument buried...

    Yes, your brain lol And I don't mean to sound sarcastic, but the brain is probably the best tool for this. With the exception of either custom instruments or instruments that are so seldom used (A lot of similarly constructed/foreign instruments), I'd say the brain has the ability to separate multiple levels of instruments and identify the smallest details. ...

    The one thing you notice about a lot of reverse shots; they don't last very long, and they are edited fairly quick/ carefully chosen camera angle. They also tend to be tighter type shots, either medium or close-up. I would suggest brainstorming ways to make her being hit interesting and brief. Editing a couple quick reaction shots as well spliced in tight...

    James Cameron was huge back in the day about in camera effects, the reverse effect being one of them. He used it pretty extensively in a lot of his shots. I think if it's done right it looks amazing AND get the audience asking how did you do that? I would research the reverse effect, how to begin and what sort of movement the shot needs. I think the trick is...

    I'm sure both strains exist. Some might charge a fee for their services, others collect a fee when work is found for their clients~

    I would imagine that any respectable agent, or person for that matter, would not discriminate representing clients of any race, creed, sexual orientation, status of disability, or financial disposition (although one must be able to pay for services!).
