Alex Ellsworth: LA-based Film Composer, Songwriter, and Producer
Alex Ellsworth is a composer, producer, and artist living in Los Angeles. Alex’s interest in music started in Singapore after he became inspired from “School of Rock”. After long hours in practice rooms, he toured with several bands throughout Singapore and abroad (the Philippines and Indonesia).
Alex then moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. But it was through taking a film scoring class taught by Adam Schoenberg where Alex developed a love for story-telling and decided to make a leap in the field. Since then Alex has gone on to score over 25 short films and web series. Alex received his Bachelor of Arts from Occidental College in May 2017. He’s also gone on to assist industry veterans.
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.
Alex’s abroad experiences coupled with his background as a guitarist and audio engineer allow him to bring something different to the table
A couple of Alex’s ongoing or recent projects include a dramedy and a short animated 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.
When Alex isn’t in the studio you will probably find him adventuring out with friends enjoying good Asian food.
