Masterclass Realistic Orchestral Mockups
I love writing orchestral music for film and videos. Spending hours in my DAW to create realistic orchestral mockups. A challenging adventure that gives me so much joy and satisfaction!
But I also know that it takes time and a lot of effort for starting composers (or composers not familiar yet with this kind of genre) to get the hang of it. How great is it then to look over the shoulders of someone who is one step ahead of you. And is willing to share his knowledge and experiences.
That's exactly what I intend to do with these masterclasses. Reaching out to help you getting better in creating realistic orchestral mockups, orchestration and writing orchestral music for film and video in general.
If you have any questions about the posts or videos, or if you have a specific question that you would like me to address in an upcoming video, I would love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment here on the website or throw me a line on YouTube or Instagram!
