Creating Sound for Video: Creating as a composer and filmmaker
SoundClouder Jonathan Ochmann is a freelance filmmaker and composer from West Germany. Jack of all trades, Jonathan writes screenplays, has directed short films and is a visual effects artist. He also dabbles in composing music for video.
Jonathan uses SoundCloud to showcase his experience in both composing and directing. When he connects with a filmmaker interested in his work, Jonathan also offers help with visual work advice. “That way, I’m pretty much always ending up doing work on both ends and not getting enough sleep.”
Stumbling across a vast network of creators was Jonathan’s biggest surprise when he signed up for SoundCloud to have a place to store his compositions.
“After I saw that beautiful waveform player on a science blog, I totally judged it by its cover, which led me to sign up with the sole intention of hosting some compositions that I had written, not knowing that there was a whole community of creators and listeners behind that initial appeal of the user interface,” he said. “And it turned out that a lot of filmmakers and game developers were already using SoundCloud to look for new material and I was approached by a number of different people who asked if they could either use my existing music for their work or if I would be interested in composing original music for projects,” Jonathan said.

Creating Sound for Video: Scoring a Documentary
“Creating music for a film makes me think of how much I’ve grown thanks to SoundCloud,” says Montpellier, France-based SoundClouder Julie Cocq.
As a student and composer, Julie has been interested in collaborating with filmmakers for a long time — so she made it known on her profile.
Evan Bartlett from Illinois contacted her to see if she would be interested in scoring his documentary film, Discovering the Beating Heart. Releasing later this year, Discovering the Beating Heart is an inspiring story of cancer survivors, Evan and his friend Elijah Accola, who embark on a 47 day journey across the American west from Illinois to show that there is life after cancer.
“To me, music brings so much to movies. It’s something that emphasizes emotions, that gives a peculiar ambiance, something that you’ll remember afterwards. To me, movie and music are practically indissociable. When I make a song, my mind is always wandering, filled with pictures,” says Julie. Hear one of her inspiring compositions from the soundtrack called “Ours”.
