05 Alex Ellsworth: composer, producer, artist

Alex Ellsworth is a composer, producer and artist. He is composing to picture for various projects (Film, Television, Virtual Reality). Alex’s abroad experiences coupled with his background as a guitarist and audio engineer allow him to bring something different to the table. His interest in music started in Singapore after he became inspired by the movie “School of Rock.” After long hours in practice rooms, he toured with several bands throughout Singapore, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Alex moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. But it was because of a film scoring class taught by Adam Schoenberg where Alex developed a love for story-telling and decided to take the leap into scoring. Alex received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Occidental College in 2017 and has since scored for over 25 short films and web series.

Alex is currently a studio runner for Crosby Collective Studios LA, where he helps out Bains (Jay Sean, The Wanted) and Chris Montgomery (Vance Joyce, Rachel Platten). He also assists film composers, Darius Holbert and Megan Cavallari.

A couple of Alex’s ongoing or recent projects include a dramedy and a short animated virtual reality (VR) short based in the Steampunk era. Some of Alex’s works have won and been accepted to multiple film festivals such as Cinefest, The Tavern Film Festival, and The Global Film Festival.
