CUSTOM SONG WRITING $750 / $1,200
I'll write a custom made, handcrafted, original song for you, specifically. I can incorporate names, events, family history and other specifics as well. It makes me a better songwriter and I actually really enjoy the challenge. Also, this is a totally unique, outside the box gift for someone who's got it all. Material things rust, but songs live forever. If you have a special event like a wedding, an anniversary, an engagement, a graduation, a birthday, or you want to etch the memory of a loved one who passed into a song, I can do it for you. Maybe you just want to have a song written for someone important in your life. I can even write a song about you. $750 for acoustic and vocals with harmonies and $1,200 for a fully produced song in any style or genre. Email me with questions and let's brainstorm lyrics.
CUSTOM MUSIC VIDEO $1,500 / 2,500 / $3,500
A lot of musicians can't afford an expensive music video, but it's still an important calling card for the industry. I recommend that artists use crowd funding to raise funds for a music video and then choose a local director. That way you're not out of pocket too badly, if at all, and you'll be supporting another artist along the way and keeping it local. A low budget video can still be great if the idea is simple and the performance is stellar. Pricing reflects a one day, two day & three day shoot, editing is included in the price, as is writing, directing and producing as well. In most cases a finished video will be totally done in 10-14 days. Email me to start brainstorming treatments and ideas. Music Videos are passion projects for me. I love working on them from top to bottom, which creates a better finished video.
A DOCUMENTARY SHORT OF YOUR EVENT $999
I will come and film your special event and then edit the footage into a documentary short. or we can turn the footage into a music video and score it with original music. Both options are the same price. The final product will be a 3-5 minute, fully edited video to document your event. Perfect length for attention spans, watchability, sharing on social media and posting online. I live in the Pacific Northwest. Other regions are possible, but may incur some added travel costs. I used the newest iPhone (XS Max) so that I can get footage on the fly that is still full 1080 HD or even 4K, while being able to be unobtrusive and not in the way.
SONGWRITING WORKSHOP $500
We live in an era of cover songs. I would like to see the next decade be all about writing originals. If you'd like to hire me at your school, college, university, your company retreat, or your home, I will teach a 3 hour songwriting workshop that will be participatory, fun and productive. Lyrics and song structure will the focus of this workshop. All experience levels welcome. Age 14 and up. Email me to start a conversation and we can discuss the details and the date of your future event. I'm a licensed teacher in Oregon & Washington and a Grammy Foundation Rep.
