Supervising Writer/Producer at Nickelodeon Sports
Zazu Pitts was the Music Supervisor and Composer on my film The Jersey Devil. To say Zazu bought the film to another level is an understatement. He captured the entire mood of the film from scene to scene and helped tell the story I was trying to tell. His work ethic was incredible, working many late nights to get the film ready for its premiere. Zazu was a huge asset in making The Jersey Devil a success.

Through his work, I always knew Zazu was really talented. He has great instincts and is musically deep with knowledge in most genres. But what really made me a fan was when I worked alongside him in his studio mixing a full length record. He's creative, driven, passionate, and organized. His work ethic is tireless, paying attention to the finest details. He's a great collaborator with an open mind, and he's definitely a guy you can trust to deliver beyond your expectations.

Zazu Pitts's score work on our project "Squatters" has become quiet an integral element of the project. The collaborative process was smooth and creatively satisfying. There wasn't a sense of omni ego driven control on our project. In fact, quite the opposite. As a filmmaker I look forward to working with him again once we complete our feature. The effort he has contributed so far did not go without notice. He was recently awarded "Best Score" at the International Horror Film Festival for his work on our film.

When we decided to record our debut album it was a no brainier that we would return to Sour Note Productions. We explained what we wanted out of the recording process and Zazu really was able to capture it. He always has fantastic ideas that can make a great song just that much better. If someone told me our album "THE NEXT DISASTER" would have some strings and effects on it, I would have said you're crazy, but Zazu added them so tastefully. It truly was a great experience and I couldn't have asked for more!

Zazu was an absolute professional to work with. He checks all the boxes when it comes to a post-production partner. He was on time. His rates are reasonable. He knows his stuff. But beyond the expected interactions between a director and his post-production team, Zazu provided a creative approach that truly made the film better with everything he touched. He added moments that I hadn't considered and still did everything I asked for. His grasp on evoking emotion at the right times with sound, dialogue, or music in the proper amounts was invaluable as we navigated through this passion project. I would strongly recommend him and Sour Note Productions for any project and I hope I am lucky enough to collaborate with him again.
