In addition to its roster of established composers, UKFM has worked hard to identify and exclusively collaborate with some of the world's most exciting and creative composers.
In a landscape of increasing co-productions and/or multi-funded feature film and tv drama, UKFM will find the best composer to deliver a score or soundscape of energy, creativity & relevance where a domestic composer with international credits and experience is paramount.
UKFM is very proud to represent a small group of highly talented composers that are at the beginning of their film-scoring careers.
Highly creative, totally committed, exceptionally hungry and in need of the opportunity to work with a director or producer brave enough to take a chance.
If you have a short film, feature film, online series or documentary and are in need of either a full orchestral or electronic score, whilst working with a limited budget, then you'll be glad to have found UKFM.
Whether working with commercial tracks, source music or a bespoke score, UK music editors Clare Batterton and BAFTA winning Rodney Berling both have an intuitively fastidious and highly creative approach to their work. Clare is currently working on the second series of tv drama series' CRIMINAL and multi-ep period drama Bridgerton. Rodney's most recent tv drama credit is Ricky Gervais's After Life and The Great, featuring Elle Fanning, a comedy, period drama due to TX on Hulu this spring. Recent feature films include Peter Cattaneo's Military Wives.
Copenhagen-based music editor and co-composer Keld Haaning Ibsen works with many of the Nordic's finest composers including UKFM's Jacob Groth and Halfdan E, providing an established, 1st class Scandinavian 'music department'. Keld's tv drama credits include the second season of Below the Surface, crime thriller Conspiracy of Silence starring Josefin Asplund and worked alongside Frans Bak delivering the score for the UK's Doctor Foster.
Amazing music editors, they operate as the technical and creative liaison between the producer and composer. With creative nous, extraordinary technical know-how, natural musicianship and the ability to seemingly never sleep, the music editor is a vital member of any production team's music department.
