Henry Cavalier was born in New York, New York and at the age of one, moved to Boulder, Colorado where he spent the rest of his childhood. During high school, he became one of Colorado’s well known jazz lead trumpet players at the time. He also developed a passion for filmmaking and would spend the weekends filming and acting in random short stories with his best friend.
In 2000 Henry attended the University of Northern Colorado, and for the next five years majored in a variety of music majors the School of Music had to offer. After becoming disgruntled with the program and with his passion for filmmaking re-emerging, he dropped out and briefly attended the Colorado Film School where he majored as a writer/director. The highlight of his film school career was a laugh-out-loud short called MORF, which not only was the 2006 Colorado Film School Fall Show Winner, but also aired on the Dish Network (Spark TV).
With the success of MORF, Henry was soon being called upon to assist on student and independent projects in such roles as Producer, Unit Production Manager, Assistant Director, and even Sound Mixer. Utilizing the knowledge he gained from music school, Henry’s hobby of digital orchestration began growing and soon he was scoring short films, his first being the office-western comedy Fistful of Staples, directed by Nick Falls.
In 2009 Henry started Epic Harmony Studios LLC, with the goal of providing high quality, budget-friendly scoring services to all filmmakers in Colorado. Now in 2011, Henry is making his actorial debut, and is currently attending introductory acting workshops with John Crockett of AEC Studios and Front Range Acting Studio.
