…From Writer/Director Carly Keys

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jerry on my two most recent productions, Present Day, a 25-minute short film, and Recovering, an original one-hour pilot.
Music is everything to me—as a passionate singer-songwriter in addition to my primary vocation as a writer-producer—and I often incorporate specific musical notions into my scripts, but I know that in order to achieve the best for what my productions needs, I hire only the best in the given field… and that is Jerry.
Not only did Jerry score both of my productions according to intentional and purposeful influences to suit the theme and tone of the stories, but he also wrote original songs, one of which was performed live by a lead actor in-scene (whom he also coached). Jerry is extremely easy to work with and accomodating: Whenever I offered input, he incorporated it effortlessly to give me the end result I so desired.

I don’t anticipate working with another composer ever again after the great success I’ve had with Jerry. He and I have forged a partnership that I know will only produce personal and professional symbiosis moving forward in our respective artistic journeys.”

Values

I believe in honest, straight forward communication. Most of a composer’s work is done remotely, which means responding to your emails and revisions quickly. I like to create demos for nearly every project I work on and share them with you. From there I use your feedback to reshape the score until it’s perfect for your project.
