Smith Ready Recording

If you are looking to compose a mock-up or demo for your next project, and you want the best musicians, recording, and stage environment, but want the savings of scale, this might be the right program for you.

What is Smith Ready Recording?

Smith Ready Recording allows a composer to record per-minute demo’s on Hollywood stages*, with top musicians and talent at bulk discount rates. This program could be really compelling if you are looking to get access to the best musicians and stage if you want to dress up a demo for that big pitch.

 

 

The Power of the Group

 

Typically, to convince a high-end stage and a large group of musicians to show up to your recording session, you need to commit to minimums. With our program, we bulk up the stage for you, so you can get the premium sound for your recording session without having to fork up the normally very high premiums. This can be great for convincing producers that you have the experience of working with a professional group!

Costs are based per minute of finished music. The pricing will range depending on the number of musicians and special requirements in the score.

We require a finished score, with all parts produced and ready for the orchestra to play. 

Alternatively, if you wish to have help with some of these services, we can offer an all inclusive education experience with the Film Accelerator.

If you fit the prerequisite requirements to conduct and write the peice, we encourage it!
