"In order to compose, all you need to do is remember a tune that nobody else has thought of."
- Robert Schumann
I’ve been a composer for around 25 years – best known for my work in AAA video games but more recently in TV and film. Along the way I’ve been lucky enough to gain five BAFTA nominations and to work with the best orchestras, studios and professionals in the industry as well as collaborating with Hollywood composer Danny Elfman on the Fable franchise.
‘The club‘ is my exclusive membership site for budding composers, orchestrators, musicians and engineers.
Working with orchestra, choir, soloists, orchestrators, engineers and mixers can be an daunting prospect, especially for the novice.
So, month-by-month the club will bring you tutorials, case studies, interviews with industry specialists, insider knowledge and a community spirit which will help you develop your skills and know-how to become the professional you want to be.
You’ll also get exclusive access to ‘The Club’ Facebook group where, each week, I’ll curate a live Q&A session for members who want to talk, ask questions and get quality advice about their own work and projects.
“I had the best experience working with Russ on my Sky TV Feature THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER. Working on a very tight schedule he was able to put together a fantastic orchestral score which really cemented the film’s character. His work was heroic, bombastic and punchy when needed and at other times, delightfully subtle and moving. His score was always thematically bold, nuanced and memorable. Russ was an utter delight to collaborate with and I can’t wait for a chance to do so again.”

“I have been Lucky enough to have worked with Russell on over 20 productions, where he has composed hundreds of amazing hours of music. His creations always exceed expectations, in my opinion one of the greatest talents in the games industry.”
