Tom W. Metz - Director - 30 Nights

“Making a feature film involves hundreds of decisions every day.  And I can honestly say that choosing Mike Newport as my composer was absolutely one of the best decisions I made throughout the entire production.  His knowledge of music and how it relates to mood and pacing was invaluable, and his ability and willingness to respond to notes and suggestions was unparalleled.  Mike is a dream collaborator and helped make my film so much better once he was a part of it.  I would recommend him whole-heartedly to any filmmaker looking for a composer that needs a smart and talented artist who is also very adaptable to any film situation”

Rachel Ross - Director - Have You Tried Maybe Not Worrying

“Mike is such a pleasure to collaborate with. He is patient and dedicated, has a great eye and ear for detail and brings so many great ideas to the table! When you're working in a team it's so key to be able to work with people you can bounce ideas off - and Mike is one of those. It's always a vulnerable process bringing together a project and Mike is sensitive to that, as well as passionate about bringing out that vulnerability through his music”

Shannon Cairns - Producer - Wilde Ride

“Having Mike on board from the start of our project was really helpful and from this point he completely nailed the brief (even when it changed….  as they do!).
In terms of workflow he is a pleasure to work with, he has an amazing ability to respond to very specific demands and revisions in a way that still maintains the integrity of the work and in fact betters the project as a whole. I thoroughly recommend him”
