Testimonials

“Arhynn doesn’t realise how good she is, and this is a real strength in her work. She patiently and genuinely listened to what I was trying to achieve with the score. She guided the process with her experience, creativity, insightfulness and professionalism. The result was a score that far exceeded my vision of what it could be, bringing the film to life. It created another layer to the storytelling, guiding the viewer’s emotional journey in the way I hoped that it would. It was a privilege to work with Arhynn, and I would do so again without a second thought.”     Andy Moody, Director and Producer

I have worked with her on two projects and intend to take her on the next one as well. HIRE HER!” Deepak Verma, Producer/Director

“After my wife died of cancer a few years ago I wanted to try and make sense of her loss. As a film maker, I decided to put together a very personal documentary film. As I wanted an original score I looked for a composer who would be sensitive to the particular material. I discovered Arhynn. We talked at length about life and death and dealing with them both. I liked the way she really endeavoured to get into the real heart and soul of the film. Over a period of months, she produced ideas which we discussed and modified. I greatly enjoyed this relationship and found she was always ready to improve and adapt. I greatly appreciated her incisiveness and honesty. I feel she has the creative talent and the people skills to be a highly valued and respected film/tv composer and recommend her without hesitation.” Simon Lewis, Film maker
