Kia ora from New Zealand!

I'm Tyler - a final year film production student working on his final year dissertation film.

This is a realist-based story exploring what emotional dependency means and how people overcome it. No longer than 15 minutes.

The main character is a train hopper - he rides trains around the country. A "free spirit". One day he wakes up, and his partner is gone. Burdened by his dependency, he is compelled to chase thin air. Along his journey, he meets various interesting characters that help him to confront his core issue.

Who am I looking for?

A genuine collaborator. Not in the 'you have some creative control' sense! I'm looking for someone creatively smart, who has been looking for a project to really test themselves on.

I'd like to work with you to develop the story from a musical perspective and sound of the film before we even start shooting. I've love it if you think outside the box, push boundaries. How can we tie the sound of a train into the soundtrack? Can we use train horns as pads and synths? If we slow down a train clack-clacking over tracks, can it sound like a heartbeat?

I'm not here to cash in on your talents; I want to create an environment where everyone I work with is pushed into making special, marketable work.

If this type of stuff excites you, then maybe we're a good match.

Any particular music style?

No. But I do love simple sounds with strong chord progressions, especially in more ambient contexts.

I love sound and the characteristics of sound. Hear me out - trap and EDM are some of my favourite genres because they often produce unique and powerful sound.

Other Noteworthy Things

I really want someone who's interested in the research and development of the music and sound. If you like getting your ideas into the DAW or recorded on an instrument, even if it's just a quick 20 minute job to produce a :10 second sample of it, that's the kind of person I'm looking for.

My ideal is some tracks are made before we're even shooting so that it can in-turn inform the production. That's why I want someone creative and unique; I want this process to be abstract and emotionally meaningful, not calculated like we're scoring something because it's our job.

What should you submit?

I'd just love to see some of your work - that's it!
