If you’re a composer you will notice the (dark) humour in the following ad…
If this is a “standard” ad for you…then probably you’re a filmmaker…
Seeking a skilled veteran composer to score our film. We are all very skilled and experienced film grads. We’ve been AD’s on local shoots so know the business cold.
We need approximately 45minutes of score, have no idea musically what we want, live players only, recorded in a world-class facility. We’re thinking a prepared piano/Carl Stalling/Janis Joplin hybrid. It needs to be epic!! Turnaround should be 7 days. Picture will lock on the 8th day. We don’t have a music editor so we’ll leave it to our video guys to deal with the 5.1 stems you provide.
Unfortunately we wont be able to pay for the one creative service that we know will hide the choppy pacing, mask the bad acting and dreadful script in post – because we need to save money for the wrap party and booze. Also, we will keep all rights and publishing. Don’t worry because you’ll get a wicked IMDB credit and a free 1080p digital copy of the rough cut. This will also screen at huge festivals worldwide (such as the Caledonia film gazelle and the Ancaster art of Film de Voila institute) – and you’ll get a bonus DVD copy.
Please contact us for submissions. We will need at least 5 minutes scored as a trial to see if you qualify for the gig.
