Moritz Schmittat

Film Music

Hi, I’m Moritz.

I was born and bred in Germany, I studied music composition and production in The Netherlands in the early 2000s before I moved to London to finish my studies with a Master of Music degree in Film Music Composition at the prestigious Royal College of Music.

Ever since I’m pursuing my career as a film composer. I’ve been very lucky to work on some amazing UK, US, German and Belgium feature film and TV film productions. Working on these productions I had the pleasure to explore many different genres and facets of film music often weaving several elements into new textures. Musically, I’m a natural explorer – and I just love working with musicians and filmmakers.

I currently live in Guildford, a town close to London, with my wife and three children. Next to writing film scores I also work as a photographer. With this website, I’d like to introduce myself and say hello. Thanks for stopping by.
