Finding a composer to collaborate with on film score is one of those under-appreciated journeys, and many a documentary filmmaker pays little attention to it until late a film’s creative process. I imagine that there are situations where the relationship might be rife with stress, conflict or tension. There is a great deal of pressure that a composer could - and probably does - feel when trying to represent and support the emotional tone that a filmmaker seeks to portray. Score is an essential component of a film’s success.

Working with John Welsman on Vanishing Point was nothing less that completely wonderful. My co-director, Steve Smith, and I, felt understood from our first conversation with John, and the building of the score was such a lovely and exciting exercise in collaborative communication, from start to finish - it was an incredible gift.

We are so very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with John, and so delighted with what he created. He was patient, attentive, inquisitive, open-minded, flexible, diligent and extremely hard-working throughout the process. In short, he possesses all of the qualities one could ask for in a composer and and artistic co-creator.

John crafted an exquisite score that successfully complements the story that we worked so hard to tell. We are so grateful for his contributions. But most of all, above all else, we are grateful for his friendship.

John is truly a gem, and there is much that can be gleaned from his insights.
— Julia Szucs, Filmmaker, Meltwater Films Inc.
Exceptional, generous, tuned, curious, masterful ... I have been so grateful to work with John Welsman these past ten years. He is simply one of the very best.
— Ingrid Veninger, Filmmaker, pUNK Films Inc.
The relationship between the filmmaker and composer is an intimate and intuitive one. The composer must give full vent to the producer’s multi-detailed vision but at the same time remain completely original. I was indeed fortunate to have worked with someone as talented as John Welsman, who was perpetually successful at interpreting my ideas about mood and character. I was always awed by the fluidity and adaptability of John’s talent, as well as his remarkable lexicon of ideas.

John patiently listened to all of the ideas and characteristics I wanted him to express, then his subtle instincts and originality went to work to create a whole other poetic reality, as score after moving score unfolded across every episode.
