We’re thrilled to announce that we’re bringing Jonas Friedman on board as the composer for Class Dismissed. Music plays a really important role for any film, both in helping to create a tone and to carry the audience on an emotional journey, and as a very skilled musician and composer, we feel confident that Jonas will bring the film to a whole new level.
Here’s a little more about Jonas:
Jonas Friedman is an innovative composer and music producer of sound tracks for feature films, television, video games and national events. His emotionally driven scores immerse the audience in a unique world of sound styled by orchestras, acoustic instruments, audio manipulations and ambient sound design. He has worked on projects for Academy and Emmy Award winning directors and producers and scored for various production companies all over the world including the United States, Canada and United Kingdom . Jonas has also collaborated in some of the most elite recording and production facilities in the world with other Grammy and multiple Emmy Award winning composers all while making a name for himself as a professional, quality driven artist.
In December of 2011 Jonas was asked by award winning director Nick Forte to score to his film “Eleven – From WWII To Present Day”, that premiered at the GI Film Festival and was later broadcast on TPC. The success of the film and Jonas’s score opened several more opportunities for Jonas including scoring Forte’s upcoming feature length documentary “They Shall Live” (which features two time Academy Award winner Kevin Costner) and the award winning feature film Brilliant Mistakes.
In the summer of 2012 Jonas was brought on by Grammy and four time Emmy winning composer Brian Keane to do the musical sound design for the score on Barry Levinson and Tom Fontanna’s television series Copper. The BBC America series aired in June of 2012 and was the highest rated premiere in the networks history.

As the editing continues, we’re really looking forward to collaborating with Jonas and can’t wait to witness how his music will help bring the film to life.
