Seaking composer for a high school student film!

    My name is Eugene and I am a G11 student filmmaker. I'm currently making a film for my IB film course at school, and I'm in an urgent need for a composer!

    The film is short (around 3-4 minutes) and my curriculum forbids students to use any music that was not specifically composed for their film. Unfortunately, I do not have any musical instruments that I can proficiently play, nor do I know any musicians. This is why I decided to reach out for potential composers in this forum.

    I'd like to make it known that I am a serious filmmaker, and I am deeply committed to my current project. I have made films previously for my course, and if you're interested feel free to see my previous German expressionism-inspired-short film! (link: )

    The general theme of my current film is childhood innocence and friendship. The music that I'm seeking is likely to include an acoustic guitar or piano with a light and jovial tone. This is a no-budget film, so I can't promise a high payment or any sort of payment in that matter. So, I am likely seeking a composer who is trying to build experience or a portfolio, with little or no regard to payments.

    If you're interested, please feel free to contact me and I will send you my script!

    Hi Eugene

    I just watched your German Expressionism film on the forum. Very interesting! Can't say I knew anything about German expressionism before seeing you're post, but it's certainly got me intrigued in the genre. I might have further look into it.

    I also couldn't help noticing that you were in need of a composer for your IB film project. A light and jovial theme about childhood friendship certainly sounds like a charming film! I'm a Grade 8 pianist so I would be well suited to a piano soundtrack to your film that can still make it sound varied and interesting. I would expect no payment, just recognition in the credits.

    You can check out my composition samples on the following link, I hope you like what you hear!

    Please reply if you're interested! It would be great to hear from you and I would be delighted to get involved with this project.

    Hi David!
    I'm sorry to not have informed you earlier that the film discussed in this post has already been completed. :(
    However, I'm embarking on a new film project for my senior year during this summer break, and I just uploaded a post in search of a composer. (link to the post: https://www.studentfilms.com/threads/seeking-for-a-composer-for-my-senior-film-project.26084/)
    Please read through, and if you're still interested please comment and feel free to ask for my script and storyboard! I listened to your music on Soundcloud and I have to say that they are excellent work! I'd be very glad to collaborate with you, and I'll be looking forward to your reply on my new post!
