A Los Angeles native, Oliver Schnee’s true passion is found in putting music to picture. Determined to deliver fresh, creative, and tasteful music to every project, he welcomes each new challenge that comes his way.
He has been fortunate enough to have scored a number of feature films and projects with multiple Academy Award winning filmmakers, such as Robert Zemeckis, Davis Guggenheim, Robert Duvall, and Oscar nominee James Franco. In addition, Oliver has worked on numerous projects and films with National Geographic, which has been incredibly fun and rewarding - a real dream come true for him.
By combining an active imagination with an understanding of how to best utilize the myriad of resources at his disposal, Oliver effectively communicates the tone and message of a film to the right audience. His unique voice in arrangement and composition stems from his years of study under such illustrious composers as James Newton Howard, John Powell, and Henry Jackman.
Oliver’s love for music composition was nurtured by his father, a multiple Grammy and Emmy-award winning music producer/mixer, whose recording studio provided Oliver with the resources to pursue his dream and collaborate with some of the most talented musicians and arrangers in the industry.
A graduate of the University of Southern California, Oliver is very thankful for the exciting adventures music takes him on.
