    Composer Needed

    I hate it when this happens. I got a call this morning from a NY production company, asking me to score their next documentary. The completed score is due by the first of June. My problem is, I'm already committed to score about 5 1/2 hours of film by the first of June, so I have to pass. Nuts.

    In the past, I've referred clients to other composers that I know, but I thought I might try something a little different this time. I've heard some incredible compositions on this site over the years, and know that there's a lot of relatively "undiscovered" talent out there.

    Here's what I can tell you about the project. It's for national broadcast (I can't tell you the name of the broadcast organization, but it rhymes with "Smashional Theographic" ;-), they'll need lots of "world" music (incl. music from Brazil, India, Alaska, etc., etc.), and the production company is located in NY, so living in the NY area might be considered a plus.

    If you 1) have the time to score a one hour doc, 2) have at least a few national credits, 3) have been a full-time composer for a little while, please let me know. I'll refer a few names onto the producer, and then they'll review your website/work and call if they're interested. I don't want a referral fee or anything like that - I'd just like to help promote some of the great composing talent that's out there these days. I should say that the producer will also be looking for a composer outside of any recommendations that I pass on, so it's quite possible that he'll find someone own his own.

    If you're interested, let me know and I'll shoot you an email with more details. Thanks.

    Forgive my ignorance - is PM a good thing or a bad thing? Prime Minister? Purple Mango? Pontificating Monkey?
