In the world of Film and TV music, time is always an issue. For any production, last minute edits, additions and substitutions are the norm. In this business in particular, time is money and quality work is at a premium. When music supervisors need a custom cue, the best in the business turn to Studio City based Opus 1 Music Library for their ultimate satisfaction.

Opus 1 Music Library's Marrsha Sill knows about the rigorous demands of these music professionals first hand. As Vice President of Film/TV Music, Marrsha is an expert at making certain Opus 1 delivers the exact cue or production necessary to satisfy the most exacting of music supervisors. She says, "We love being of service to the production community because it is so rewarding. These music supervisors hold such demanding jobs; we take great satisfaction in doing everything we can to make their lives easier. Ask anyone who has worked with Opus 1 and they'll tell you about the quality of our work and the timely fashion in which it was created."

From orchestral cues to choral groups to Korean Hip Hop (Opus believes they may have invented that category), Opus 1 has the ability to create virtually any musical production required. Marrsha adds, "Our clients need not worry about anything. We record our cues as Library tracks and keep their stress level to a minimum." For example, when the hit show LOST needed a "Korean Sinatra," Opus 1 magically created one (play attached MP3).

Some of the great music supervisors Opus 1 has created custom works for include: Ann Klein and Sarah Sheehe at John Wells Productions, music supervisors on ER and West Wing; Kevin Edelman currently working on Pepper Dennis and My Name is Earl; Carter Armstrong who secures music for Warner Bros Features and is on the new Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom film, The Assassination of Jesse James; music supervisor Jennifer Pyken, currently working on Las Vegas and Lost, as well as Greg Sill, a renowned music supervisor currently on the new Dick Wolf show Conviction in addition to Heist and the new CBS Jenna Elfman show, Courting Alex. And when Joe Fisher, a noted executive at Warner Bros Television Music required custom tracks for the Gilmore Girls, he too turned to Opus 1.

In addition to Opus 1's body of television work, the company excels in feature film music, as well, including the previously mentioned upcoming Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom big screen release, The Assassination of Jesse James. Carter Armstrong, currently working on the project sings Opus 1's praises. Armstrong says, "Opus 1 is an outstanding resource. The licensing service is top notch, but the custom tracking has impressed me tremendously. They've turned amazing music around to me in record time and I appreciate them so much."

Opus 1 also brought their international flair and expertise to the film Surrender Dorothy starring Diane Keaton for a J-Pop/Japanese track.

Metalman Media, Inc.'s Kevin Edelman adds, "Opus 1 always provides the highest quality custom music... and, can turn it around amazingly fast."

And when the CBS mini-series ELVIS required a specific Gospel influenced cue, Gregory Sill, Music Supervisor and founder of Music Makes Pictures turned to Opus 1 for the track. When things got tight behind the music at Showtime's hit, Sleeper Cell, Greg once again looked to Opus 1. Greg remembers, "I have come to rely on Opus 1 Music Library for all of my custom cue needs. Here is a great example of their expertise in this area. I was in a bind with a song for the Showtime series Sleeper Cell that the producers absolutely had to have, and the real issue was the song was a French Trip-Hop composition. Opus listened to the track, and actually produced a new song in one day that the producers liked even better than the original. That is the ultimate of compliments. Opus 1 is a great resource for custom cue creation, and all other production music needs."

Tim King of Tim King Media Services based at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan beach concludes, "I am constantly flooded with production music libraries. And finding the right music in these mountains of CDs is, for me, like buying perfume for my wife - after a while, everything smells good! ~ what separates Opus 1 is easy search functions and instant gratification from there talented Music Supervisors, and, of course, Marrsha Sill who never fails to deliver. Perfect cues, perfect price, every time. We love Opus 1!!"

From Showtime's Sleeper Cell, to ER and from Las Vegas to Malcolm in the Middle, the production wizards at Opus 1 have the skills necessary to pull off the impossible in a timely fashion.
