Produces Music for Film and Video
Quotes from clients …
“To find a music producer who has both artistic, creative talent and is totally dependable and responsible and fully equipped with everything needed to do a broadcast-quality job, is a rare find. I’ve worked with Peter now on nearly a dozen productions, and he is a gem.”
– Tom Colello, producer, TOM COLELLO PRODUCTIONS
“Peter Einhorn of Unicorn Music Productions is a lifesaver. I called him one week before my production was due, and he came through with great theme music and stings. My client was extremely pleased with the end result. Peter is reliable, creative, professional–and a pleasure to work with.”
– Donna Boundy, producer, MAVERICK MEDIA
“I had my doubts about bringing in a composer. What if I didn’t like what he did? What if it led to hard feelings? But Peter quickly dispelled those fears. He sought my input at every turn, and made adjustments as requested, all with a great, easy-going attitude. He’s definitely in on the next production.”
– Bart Friedman, producer, REELIZATIONS
Why Original Music will work better with Your Film or Video than production libraries
In collaboration with you, I can develop an overall musical “theme” for your program from which all the stings and transitions can be derived – giving the production an overall cohesiveness. And unlike production libraries, I can make as many variations on a theme as you need.
- Precisely Synchronized
Using the latest digital recording equipment, I can regulate the tempo of any piece to sync with your video edits – enhancing openings and montages.
- Content Emphasis
Music can be designed to augment and compliment your program’s content. For instance, a musical crescendo (or other “punctuation”) can be timed to occur at the moment a central image appears on screen – giving that image emphasis. Of course, emotional content can be suggested or augmented with music as well.
- No Acquiring of Rights Necessary
Theme music can be composed to sound like the commercial tune you had in mind–without actually being that theme. So you can have the music you want while avoiding the time-consuming and expensive process of acquiring rights.
- Each Sting or Transition Designed to Spec
Stings for transitions can be precisely timed and designed to segue into the next topic – just the way you want.
