  1. Saint Saens in Modern Film

Hi there, I am a new Berklee grad and am looking for opportunities with film students. I would love to have have some tracks used in indie films and could actively promote as well.

  1. My music

    I'm a composer. The daily life of the killer, it's scary. Watch until the end. In general, this is the first film, and we did it within 1 day. In the morning we wrote the script, and in the evening we already edited the film. Do not judge strictly. I will be happy with any advice. I'm just a musician, a composer. The film uses my music, who needs it, I can also offer music for free! See this link
