About Me

I'm a student by day, producer by night.

Chris Neal

Hi There!

My name is Chris Neal. I am a film score producer ("composer," according to IMDb), podcast host, student, and former web developer. I have been given some incredible opportunities over the past few years, and am truly humbled to have worked alongside some very talented & inspiring creatives.

At age 16, I scored my first independent film, "Dreamer: A True American Story," working with brilliant & passionate director Jesse Salmeron. The film received universal praise and a standing ovation at its sold-out premiere, held by the 2013 Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, California. My music was received positively even by critics such as Brent Simon, writing, "composer Chris Neal's music stirs great feelings of uncertainty." It is available to stream on Amazon.

I also developed the official website for Dreamer alongside designer Bret Bussey. Using only a text editor and a web browser, I transformed Photoshop mock-ups into one fully functional, interactive experience that has been used by tens of thousands.

In 2017, I scored my second film, "Marcus Jansen: Examine & Report," and worked with Emmy-award winning director John Scoular. The documentary will be screened in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. It is currently available to stream on Vimeo.

In addition, I have worked with game developers, a charitable organization, and other independent producers. To date, I have uploaded exactly 100 royalty-free samples on a website called Looperman, which collectively have been downloaded over 120,000 times. I have also been listed in the top ten producers on the site, a community of nearly two million users. My samples have been used in independent films, documentaries, short films, "vlogs," presentations, songs, and game trailers, among other projects.

Beautiful progressions ... another amazing track. I think your melody and progressions are really unique and inspiring.

This is what you expect on those huge TV reality series like America's Got Talent, when someone jumps out of nowhere to do a quadruple backflip to dance music.
