“I’m a filmmaker, not a musician.” says Brian Satterwhite, an award-winning film composer and conductor based in Austin, Texas. He earned a Bachelor of Music with dual majors in Film Scoring and Composition from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Brian has written scores for over one hundred short and feature films including SUSHI: THE GLOBAL CATCH (2012), SWITCH (2012), MAN ON A MISSION (2012), CELL: THE WEB SERIES (2010), ARTOIS THE GOAT (2009), QUARTER TO NOON (2008), THE CHILDREN'S WAR (2008), COWBOY SMOKE (2008), MR. HELL (2006), and the award-winning IMAX™ film RIDE AROUND THE WORLD (2006). Brian’s accolades include twelve gold medals and four silver medals from the Park City Film Music Festival.

A dedicated disciple of his craft, Brian devotes copious amounts of time writing, lecturing, and teaching various film music related topics in addition to hosting an hour long film music radio program called Film Score Focus. The show airs on 89.5 KMFA out of Austin, Texas, and is streamed live via the internet at www.kmfa.org.

Brian’s filmic pursuits have not been limited to just music. Recently, he has become smitten with film editing having cut (and scored) the internationally acclaimed short film QUARTER TO NOON (2008) which has screened in twenty-two countries. He also served as an assistant editor on two major documentaries due for release in 2011.

When not engaged in film related activities, Brian loves spending time watching movies with his wife and two young sons…oh, wait…that is still a film related activity. Well, you get the idea.
