Dear Screen Music colleague, its highly likely that you’ve never heard of me or spotted my name at the tail end of a credits roll, and I’m totally cool with that. I am proudly a ‘jobbing musician’, a composer, orchestrator, music editor, score coordinator, MIDI programmer, session musician, and music educator - one of those people who ’beavers away’ in a backroom helping to make the magic happen.
I make no claims to fame, I am merely an industry professional that after 20 years doing this has worked on 40+ film projects, some of which have been successful and some not.
I’ve also been lucky enough to work with and for various famous and infamous composers, with an array of incredibly talented recording musicians, and at some mind bending recording studios both locally and internationally. If my credits are of interest to you, feel free to look me up on IMDB, if not read on…
AGSC Board Statement
I’m now two years into my planned three year stint as Treasurer of the AGSC. Yes this means if you’re agreeable I’ll stay active as Treasurer for one more year and then I’ll be passing on the baton.
I took on this role altruistically, seeking to give the AGSC Ltd company a stronger financial base from which it could support and resource our national screen music community.
Two years on and the guild is now in a significantly stronger financial position than ever before, making it possible for the AGSC to better serve its membership (you!). Quick aside, as a member, you should ask to see the Guilds financial reports to better understand where the AGSC was, and is now. Or for that matter sit in on a board meeting. Get involved!
Now, with a stronger financial base enabling ongoing political advocacy, online and in-person events and activities, over the next 12 months I will be focused on the content of the new professionally built AGSC website, which is intended to be a hub for newly updated business and creative resources, composer interviews and, contractual and accounting proformas developed by legal and accounting professionals intended to help us all.
