Welcome to 12 days of creators. Creating for me is an important thing and more important is the creators behind it. For these 12 days, I’m spotlighting a new creator each day. I want to give you an opportunity to view their creativity.
Hi guys, welcome back to 12 days of creators. Today we are meeting another new friend of mine and I’m really excited for you to become his friend too.
Hi guys! I’m Bradley Thomas Turner and I’m a composer who gets excited talking about classic film scores and the beauty of physical, hand-played instruments.
What motivates you to create?
I feel compelled to make things. I’m not entirely sure why. It’s an intrinsic motivation for me and the act of creating is satisfying in and of itself (even if I never post it anywhere). I’m obsessed with getting better at what I do and the progress alone brings me joy.
What is your inspiration for your content?
Movies. I try to watch one a day, and I’m constantly trying to learn from the music in classic films.
What got you interested in creating your content?
Most of the work I post comes out of being inspired to make things that no one is willing to hire me to make. I used to dream of working on certain types of films or projects, even ones that I had no experience interacting with. At some point, I decided to start making music for the types of movies I liked, simply to learn. I like finding classic films that have slipped into the public domain and trying to change the music, even if it’s something as specific as an old western or noir.
Who is your favorite content creator?
Marina Elise is an amazing director and I’ve loved getting to work with her on a few projects (like her adorable short film “Breakfast at the Bodega”). Hatemail is one of my favorite artists and collaborates with me constantly.
How do you decide what content/style you are creating?
Usually, it’s simply a matter of what I’m inspired to create. I’ve tried at times to make things that I think will be successful on social media, but typically, I find creating from that perspective to be disappointing and unsatisfying. I feel the best when I’m posting things that I felt inspired to create, regardless of how they are received by strangers online.
Are there hobbies or interests that helped you develop your content?
I think my penchant for introspection and romanticization has the biggest impact on I develop content. Anytime I’m out in the world, I’m thinking internally about the small, mundane details of where I am and trying to elevate them to something magical.
Can you share your favorite piece and explain your process.
My favorite piece is the video on my website, “A Guide To Bradley Thomas Turner’s Orchestra”. I like it because it encapsulates so many things I like to do and so many of the instruments I use to make music. It visually captures my aesthetic and also utilizes animation which is something I’ve always loved and enjoyed dabbling in.
