Last fall, BoardingSkiGirl asked the following question on our formspring.me account:
I want to become a composer when I’m older and I just wanted to ask how difficult was it to choose the right composer to score for your series? I want to write film soundtracks when I’m older and wanted to know how difficult an industry it is to get into.
Rather than answering in a few sentences, composer Adrian Ellis and I felt this question warranted a bigger answer. We filmed our discussion on how we connected and important lessons Adrian has learned over the years, that he feels he would have appreciated knowing when he started.
Watch for a longer in-depth conversation between Adrian and I when we discuss the task of scoring Out With Dad, coming soon.
Big thanks to Simon Evan for helping us with this shoot!

That was a good conversation between two obvious friends and I appreciate you sharing that with us. I am sure that the people wondering about whether they have what it takes got their eyes opened and those ‘just thinking about it’ got scared off or made the leap of faith. Again, thank you!
Hey, Jason, if you are a sound track buff, might I suggest ‘The Norman Bates Memorial Soundtrack Show’? It is on Saturday’s from Noon to 3pm your time and is pretty amazing. I never miss it myself….check it out!
This was sooo interesting! I found out about your series about two days ago and I’m looking forward to the new episodes already! Kisses from Italy!
Hi Giulia! Glad you enjoyed the video, and thanks for watching Out With Dad!
Thank you so much for answering my question! That’s really helped a lot, and I am definitely going to start getting my music out there now 🙂
Thank YOU for asking such an interesting question!
After Adrian and I finished recording it, we went on to record more conversation, with more focus on how we scored Out With Dad. I’ll probably post that video (half an hour long!) sometime this week or next week. I hope you enjoy that one as well. Keep an eye open for it!
Awesome! So glad that helped, Annie, and good luck with your music!
