After having discussed how my sound composer found me on social media, for my film “The Sea Room”, a very similar story happened to my drama film with Andrija, tilted “Bad Coffee”.
Andrija had posted, on her personal Twitter page, that we were about to start looking into music composers and through that a composer called Tom, approached us as he has seen our film’s Instagram page and was interested to know if we’d be interested to have in on board.
This same day, we received his tweet, we organized a quick Skype call to assess if he was actually interested in the project and to discuss our ideas for the sound in the film and how his own professional journey has been.
Our call lasted for only about 10 minutes but afterwards, myself and Andrija felt very confident that he was our guy and that we could now shift our attention from the image to the sound as we wanted it to help mould the story into what it will become.
But overall, both of my experiences with finding sound composers (or them finding me!) has just enhanced my notion of how important online marketing and publicity really is and how it can bring people together for a project, no matter the distance between us.
