CONTRACTING


If you need an Orchestra Contractor in Los Angeles, look no further.
I've been Musician Contracting in Los Angeles for over 28 years with experience contracting musicians and orchestras for all types of musical situations from major recording sessions for movies to live dates. Contrary to popular belief, there is much more to musician contracting in Los Angeles than just picking up the telephone or sending an e-mail and booking the players. I specialize in full project management from start to finish in order to allow you, the composer to do what you do, write the music.
My main goal as a Los Angeles Orchestra Music contractor is to keep the players working along with the music and the money staying in Los Angeles. My Angel City Studio Orchestra has been very busy recently with Movie projects in the regular and the low budget arena along with some regular TV shows and some Warner Brothers animation projects. I also contracted the players for the "Need for Speed" motion picture for Dreamworks. I've been contracting musicians for the UCLA Extension Film Scoring program since 2006 on AFM demo contracts and love to see the next generation of film composers build their careers. I book all types of music and all musical situations.
All I need is the instrumentation you're writing for so I can then generate an Excel budget within your scope for the specific project, there are deals being made every day, and there are no bad questions for me about recording in LA. No project is either too big nor too small...there are also many creative lower budget recording scales in place now to keep you recording in LA, and this is better than you having to go out of town or use the internet to record elsewhere. My main goal is to keep the money in LA!
I frequently book the studio, the engineer, the orchestration and copying team along with hiring the musicians. At the end of the whole process, I get everyone paid in a timely manner and follow up on all aspects.
