Karin was very professional when I worked with her. She was able to grasp the concept, mood and tone of my film very quickly and created music that perfectly represented the story and its characters. Her turnaround was very quick and efficient, plus her dedication to creating quality music for my film was sublime. Thanks -Arthur Smith Director
