Just to get this up front and out of the way: this isn’t some sappy loveletter. It’s not, “I love directors, they’re so creative and visionary and I couldn’t possibly do what I do without them,” blathering piece of sales rubbish to make you want to hire me (though that would be good, the hiring bit).
This is the real reason I like collaborating with directors:
Directors are a source of raw materials, just as the music I make is a source of raw materials for directors. The raw material could be a film or a theatre piece or just a brief for any kind of project.
