Check out what some of our clients have to say...

"The Oovra team recently came thru for me and my producer in a pinch - a really tight pinch. In just a few days, they created an original piece of music to replace a temp cue we loved but couldn't clear. The new piece fit perfectly and was actually better than the original. Oovra is very professional, very creative, very easy to work with. I highly recommend them."

- Geof Bartz, A.C.E., Emmy award-winning editor for HBO


"I have worked with Oovra on a number of films, both big budget and small. No matter the film, the team is always generous, accommodating, super professional and willing to do what's best for the project. And the range of music is outstanding - I easily find a fit for every film. I would work with them on every project."

- Geeta Gandbhir, Emmy award-winning filmmaker
