Jamie Hall is an award-winning composer for film, television and video games. He most recently scored the feature film 10 Days in a Madhouse, produced by Pendragon Pictures and distributed by Tricoast Studios and Café Pictures.
After graduating from the University of Michigan, Jamie studied under two-time Emmy-Award-winning composer Hummie Mann at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, where he gained valuable experience scoring, orchestrating, and recording with live orchestras. He also has extensive experience on the technical side of music composition, whether in producing completely "out-of-the-box" realistic computer-generated scores, or just creating great MIDI mock-ups with the latest sample libraries. As composers are more often asked to be "armies-of-one" in terms of music creation, Jamie has all of the bases covered.
In 2000, Jamie was a "Finalist" in the Turner Classic Movies Young Film Composers Competition, a nationwide film composition contest open to anyone 35 years-old or younger. In 2004, Jamie was once again a finalist, but this time made the "Top 5" and was flown out to Los Angeles for the Finals Competition and to be a part of the TCM documentary program Settling The Score.
In 2007, Jamie's score for the Documentary short, Endangered Species was awarded a "Gold Medal for Excellence" in the "Best Impact of Music in a Short Film" Award at the Park City Film Music Festival.
Jamie spent time working with Emmy-award-winning composer Bear McCreary in 2009-2010 working on the TV Shows Human Target, Caprica and Trauma mostly in a music editing role.
When Jamie isn't writing music, he enjoys a variety of pursuits, including playing sports (softball, basketball), video games, computer programming, and playing all varieties of the saxophone.
