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.
