About The Cue Tube

WELCOME! I’m Bryan Waters, the founder of The Cue Tube and I’m glad to see you here!

Bear with us while we build our website 2.0 as we’ve just taken the member areas off WordPress onto a custom-coded platform for better performance and stability.

The Cue Tube is a UK-based global community of composers for film, TV and gaming and for anyone interested in finding composers for projects. We have over 7,000 members worldwide since forming in summer 2020, as of Jan 2022. We provide resources such as education, unscored videos to use (example here), networking channels, competitions and more for composers. Almost all of our core resources are free to use.

We help filmmakers, game developers and others to find the ideal composer(s) for their projects. If you need a composer or bespoke music, feel free to contact us, or start reaching out to our community via our Discord server. You can also register for free and browse the work of composers in our member-only area. Further tools for finding composers will be added through 2022 and beyond.

Members range from students and beginners all the way through to professional and even award-winning composers, with everything in between. A supportive and creative community, The Cue Tube is a great place for anyone passionate about music for media.

We hope you enjoy our community and resources!

During January 2022 we are running Score Relief, our free-to-enter film scoring competition with a heart. This year it’s better than ever with HUGE prizes, judges including Oscar winner Mychael Danna and, as always, the chance to have your music performed by an orchestra. We hope you’ll take part!

Once again we’re supporting a fantastic charity. This time it’s In Place of War, a global charity that helps to support grassroots music and other arts projects in territories that have been afflicted by war. Please support our fundraiser in whatever way you can, however small. Thank you for your support!
