Cleveland Musician Makes 100 Tracks Available to Local Filmmakers

Posted By on Fri, Feb 2, 2018 at 12:18 PM

Local musician Paul Francis has just finished composing and recording 100 audio tracks that he hopes local filmmakers will use for their soundtracks.

“The goal of the project is to network as well as provide music for filmmakers without affecting their budget," he says in an email. "I have all 100 tracks on a Bandcamp profile of mine and also have a short film I created to showcase a selection of them on Vimeo. It’s all local talent involved with the production of the film as well as who created art which I presented through my Bandcamp."

In the past, Francis has worked with both local filmmakers and advertising firms. The “Cleveland: A Million Stories” video features an old song of his accompanied with from some stunning high def footage of Cleveland lensed by locals Fernando Lopez and Tim Figueira, who both helped Francis with the film he shot for a video promoting his 100 tracks project.

Francis used Garageband and “minimal gear” and recorded all the music in his bedroom or at his mom’s house using her piano.

“Eventually, I hope to collaborate with filmmakers I love and reach a larger audience,” he says. “So this project is the next step I decided to take with networking as well as offering a library of free music to help out other artists.”
