Paul has over 20 years experience in the creative industries as a composer, songwriter and producer specialising in film and television. He has worked in TV drama for ITV, wildlife for National Geographic and children's TV for CBeebies, with internationally recognised film directors, producers and editors. In addition to film and television he has worked with a variety of artists, bands and musicians across genres and has been recording independent music for over 30 years.
Paul is dedicated to getting your music production right. From composing original music to underscore and theme music he ensures the composition fits seamlessly with your edited (fine cut) film, whether the musical expression is a gentle solo piano, a romantic chamber section, a four-on-the-floor dance track, or an epic orchestra with a choir - each theme, song, or incidental music cue is bespoke to your requirements.
The sonic spectrum and mastering of music to align with your production are fundamental to the creative process. Paul is committed to attention to detail during mixdown and mastering to ensure optimum broadcast quality.
