A Montreal Minute – Positive and Uplifting Short Film Soundtrack

“A Montreal Minute” is a short film by Montreal’s filmmaker James Newman who described the film as “a fun deviation from my short films about shoes”. I had the pleasure of writing the music score for this film.

The background music soundtrack is a short, sweet, and happy pop instrumental cue with distinct positive vibe. The instrumentation combines the acoustic piano, acoustic and electronic beat, and some bouncy electronic sounds. The arrangement builds-up gradually toward the end of the track.

Featured in “SHORTS Non Stop” film festival

“A Montreal Minute” was features in the SHORTSNONSTOP, an exciting new initiative of the CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival supported by the Canadian Film Center.

SHORTSNONSTOP is a year-round online mobile film festival that you can experience anytime or anyplace. It is a showcase of short (not more that 10 min) films and web series produced for mobile and online platforms.

Looking for a composer to create soundtrack for your short film or business video?

I’d be delighted to help you out. Contact me and tell me about your project.

Here are just a few suggestions that you may find helpful when looking for and working with a composer to score your film or video:

  • Don’t wait until your film is in post-production. Share you vision with the composer early on and test the demos against the script.
  • Plan your music budget and stick to it. Filmmaker magazine suggests a minimum of 5-10% of your film’s budget.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment and be open to unconventional choices and genres. Not every speed chaise scene needs a typical “speed chaise” music sequence. Often contrast works the best.
  • Be realistic. If you’re working on a non-commercial or no-budget film, you may need to compromise.
