I have been a band director and music teacher in the public education system in Oklahoma for the past nine years. Film composition has always been my goal, but with little time and no money (I guess it's all squandered as we all know teachers make serious bank) so composing has been focused on the stage and football field...basically for my own ensembles. Listening to others' work has quite frankly sent my self confidence into a tailspin. I would like to find a way to get started making demos, but I am stuck. Is there a resource where I can find shorts or scenes with no music? The only "demos" I have are mostly live recordings so I would like to get working on something more acceptable to the industry. Thanks and I look forward to your comments.
