"Jonathan's music is breathtaking and poetic... injecting just the right amount of magic into our story to make it a complete work of art. The musical scores for My Dog the Champion and The Adventures of Pepper and Paula were two very different films; Jonathan stretched to show how versatile and flexible he was."- Kevin Nations, Director
BioJonathan Franklin is a Virginia native currently living in Nashville, TN. His love for composing music began at age twelve, performing trumpet with school bands and the city orchestra. He continued to study music at East Tennessee State University, during which time he began learning the violin. He scored his first feature film in 2006 and has since completed scores for six feature films and numerous shorts, as well as several commercial projects.
Though he uses the orchestra as a core element in his music, Jonathan also integrates other non-traditional instruments into his scores such as guitar, choir, ethnic instruments, soundscapes, and synthesized sounds to create unique themes to match a given mood. As a result, he can create music in almost any style. Jonathan's consistency, professionalism, and skill have garnered praise from directors and movie-goers alike.
"Jonathan Franklin is an incredible composer who works very fast. He scored our 90 page independent film in 25 days. I was blown away by the quality of his work. There wasn't a dry eye in the audience and I attribute that to the depth Jonathan breathed into our film through his music."- David Burns, Director Guardians 2013
