I am convinced that a good film score results from an excellent relationship between the director and the composer. It requires from the composer a perfect understanding of the intentions of the film and the vision of the director. The fact that I have been studying different styles of music (classical, jazz, rock, pop…) since I was 5 years old allows me today to fully adapt my composition to the director's wishes.
Since my graduate study in France, I have composed for more than 50 projects (short films, video games, museum exhibitions, board games, escape games), allowing me to practice in a wide variety of styles and musical worlds. This has earned me numerous awards, including the « Best Animation Soundtrack » Garoa Award, shorlisted at the BAFTA Student Award for « Best Animation Short Movie », and even eligibility for the Academy Award Student.
Here’s a feedback from a director I worked with (Guillaume Cosenza, Trésor 2020) : « It's a real pleasure to work with Dorian, both professionally and humanly. He is a person who listens, who invests body and soul in the project. He was able to exceed our expectations and produce a piece of high quality, which does not just accompany the image but is an integral part of the film. »
Main inspirations : Ludwig Göranson, Michael Giacchino, Hans Zimmer
Favorite movies : Thelma & Louise, La la land, Seven, Lord of the ring
Our collaboration with Dorian was of great quality. He knew how to answer our expectations by proposing us pieces of music in agreement with the project while keeping a relevant personal touch which greatly contributed to the originality of the soundtrack.Alexandre Manzanares, Director & Lighting Artist
