Composing for Film with Brian S. Carr
4 days ago
Brian S. Carr is a composer for film and television based in Los Angeles. He first found his way into music through a piano given to him by a great aunt when he was 2 years old and later went to study classical music at Pepperdine University and Arizona State University. After moving to L.A. he became involved in writing songs, arranging strings, and producing demos for various artists which eventually lead to his work with Colbie Caillat as a keyboardist and string arranger, and for many seasons as an orchestrator and source-cue/sound-a-like producer on Fox's Family Guy (9 Seasons) and American Dad (4 Seasons). In 2012, Brian began a working relationship with award winning Russian film-maker Marius Weisberg and director/editor David Dodson, whose love for live orchestral music continues to afford him opportunities to work with the world-class musicians he developed relationships with while on Family Guy. Additionally, Brian is a co-founder of WaxLab Music, a commercial music production company that has served clients such as Verizon, Adobe, Nature Made, Honda, Activision, The Isreal Ministry of Tourism, and Microsoft.
