  1. Thanks for your best wishes! Thanks for your encouraging words! Thanks! You know, your words are spot on. You're right. Except! For the part that you say I'm "simply trying to use the opportunity of my government funded film to somehow get involved with John Williams": a) Dude: one thing has nothing to do with the other. The budget for our short film is probably just a fraction of what JW usually receives per film score. b) If I had less money, or more money, I'd still be reaching out to him. c) The process would be sending him a final cut of the film, so he could consider writing something for it. d) And, I'm not planning on "using his name on the film". I know what you mean. Using his name as bait. No. But if I were lucky enough, I'm planning on using his musical composition on my short film. My film needs a score. I've heard JW scores all my life. He seems like THE right fit for my production. Now it's a matter of seeing if he'd deem it worthy to work on. e) As for me not liking what he'd compose. Sure. That's a possibility. That his composition might not fit the film aesthetic. You're right. It could happen. But, come on... To be honest, I'm a little disheartened to the answers and replies I've gotten through these forums. There's been a few words of encouragement. But I've also been told to "get a reality check", I've been told that "i'm naive", "that JW gets similar propositions on a daily basis". Of course I already know that. Making movies gives you a daily reality check. And yes, I may be naive for dreaming about getting JW interested in scoring my short film. But I'd like to think I'm hopeful too. I've been told "to get a time turner because he's really busy" (seriously), and now, "that my motives need some scrutiny" and "that I'm simply trying to use my film as a means to get in touch with him". Yikes. I've sweated my fair share to get that thing (the short film) on track. I just want to make a little movie. And if that is occasion enough to dream a little bigger, then why so many people talking me down? I thought these forums would be more supportive. We're all here for the same reason. We like JW's music.
  2. Cerebral Cortex, Hahahaha! Yeah. Saw the video. Lucky kids! Although if I plant myself outside Mr. Williams house, the creepy factor might not work in my favor. Psycho Pianist, Thanks! Yup. I imagine so (the filtering out of propositions). Thanks for the info. Didn't know his agents' full name. Right now, that's my one option to contact him. Let's see how that goes. Thanks again!
  3. Thanks, Richard. Option 3 is already on stand-by. I really want to see if option 1 is successful! Thanks!
  4. (don't mean to break any rules; just posted this on another thread but thought more people could read it here too) Hi! I'm a newcomer to this website / forums, but a life-long John Williams fan. I'm a writer from Monterrey, México. And just like everyone else in these forums, I grew up listening to Mr. Williams' work. Last month I received a government grant to produce a short film (I'll direct, I'll leave the producer credit to braver people). It's a big deal for my team and myself, since it's a federal-funded grant which we won through a rigorous process. We already have a talented composer on our team, but: To make a long story short: I'd like to contact Mr. Williams to see if he'd be interested in scoring (or composing a theme) for my short film. I know it's a long shot, I know how busy he must be, and all the time-frame and legal hoops that stand in the way. But just in case he'd be interested in scoring (or composing just a theme) for a professional, magical-realism short film to be produced in Mexico come January 2017... ...What would be the best way to contact him? To present my query to his manager or representative. That is, besides the physical address already listed on this site (which I'm already writing to). I'm open to all suggestions and help. Thank you, everyone!
  5. Cerebral Cortex, Hi! Thank you for your suggestion. It makes me happy to hear anyone on these forums might be interested or open to the idea of collaborating on a short film. But, to be honest, we already have a main composer whom we've worked with before on several occasions. When we told him about this crazy idea, he said "John Williams? Go for it!". So I'm already blessed with having a talented, available composer on our team. But, here's to having the stars align! Thanks!

  8. Thank you! But I can't stop trying just because chances are slim. I wouldn't even have this great opportunity to direct a short film if I'd desisted from the start. I already have a tacit "no". I'd rather have the "real no" than wonder "what would have happened if I just tried to contact him or his people...?". Let's see what happens!
  9. Skelly, thanks for your response. 1) Oh, we aren't planning on him conducting and recording. We'd just like to know if he'd like to compose the soundtrack or just a theme / piece. 2) Yup. His schedule must already be filled-out already, like I already assumed on my first post. We'll be shooting the short in January 2017, and we might have a first cut by May, 2017. 3) A reality check? Ow. That's a bit uncalled for, isn't it? We're all friends here. I'm just asking around to see if anyone can help. Of course there are many other talented, wonderful composers. We all know that. That's stating the obvious. But even our main composer said "John Williams? Go for it!". Just trying to get my project to Mr. Williams to see if he'd be interested in composing for our short film. Like this WojinPA: Hahaha! True! I'm excited about Michael Giacchino, though. Can't wait to hear what he'll compose and record in less than 3 months!
