Who We Are

We’re Joshua Crispin and Arn Andersson, together we’ve got over a decade of experience in this industry and have had our music featured in everything from Hollywood movie trailers, video games, and advertisement campaigns, to releases with world class orchestras and DJ’s.

For the past 3 years we’ve worked closely together on a multitude of projects, and we’d like to pass down all the invaluable lessons we’ve learned in our careers through both trial and error as well as amazing mentors in order to help others entering this industry.

Learn from our wins, avoid our mistakes.

Creating Cinematic Music Shouldn't Be Frustrating

When I started out making cinematic music, I had no idea where to begin. I wanted to create epic music like Thomas Bergersen & Hans Zimmer, but every resource either taught traditional orchestration or other styles of music.

I had to piece together knowledge from countless different resources - and after many years of trial and error, lightbulb moments and breakthroughts, I condensed everything I learned into this course.

It's now been refined for years to literally include everything you need to go from an idea, to a fully finished orchestral piece you can be proud of.

In This Program, You'll Discover


- The Process to Create Highly Licensable tracks in Any Genre
- Breakdowns of tracks from campaigns like Fortnite that gathered 50m+ streams
- 7 Common Mistakes that get your tracks rejected, and how to avoid them
- How and where to Register your tracks to Maximize Your Income
- How to stay Organized for Maximum Productivity

From 0 to 6 Figures
- A Case Study

One of the highlights of this course is our case study on how we took an anonymous side project from scratch, to earning 6-figures in less a year.

In that year alone, our tracks generated over $140,000 in revenue, without any marketing or really a lot of effort.

No marketing, no existing names attached, no extreme hours put in …

Simply focusing on quality music, and staying true to the 7 pillar framework we break down in these videos. We’ll also break down all the best performers and dissect what they have in common, look at the issues with the least successful, and show you the most important takeaways.

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this content for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

What do I need in order to take this course?

You can get started with very little! However, all of our courses require a computer and internet connection to access, and some software and/or hardware. For our Music courses, you'll need a DAW (like Ableton, Cubase, Logic, FL Studio or Studio One), and a computer powerful enough to handle these programs.

For our Design courses a drawing tablet is required. Anything beyond these basics is pretty much up to how much one wants to invest into the gear and software.

We have a very strict policy that we only want happy students. That's why we give you 21 days to try out all the courses, completely risk free. If for ANY reason you're not happy during this period, simply let us know and we'll give you every penny back, no questions asked. We're a platform by creatives for creatives, and if we can't provide tremendous value to you, we don't want your money.
