Jelle Dittmar discusses his path to becoming a Film Score Composer


Following the steps of great Film Score composers like Hans Zimmer is a hard path. However, Jelle has created around 500 tracks for library music, film, and games, got 5 tracks placed in two seasons of the Netflix series Dark Desire (Oscuro Deseo) and produced an album with a 34 piece string ensemble in Budapest with Warner Chappell Los Angeles for their new music catalog among other accomplishments in the past 3 years.

Jelle will discuss the difficulties and perseverance between all the elements involved in what often is a long period of work in order to become one of the next best film score composers in the industry.


Jelle Dittmar is a Dutch composer and musician who has dedicated himself to music for film, television, and videogames. His music varies from minimal cinematic and mid-epic, to experimental and emotional. Since 2019 he has built an extensive music catalog while starting his studies in Audio Production at the SAE Institute in Amsterdam, where he learned the ropes of navigating the recording studio.

Jelle’s music got placed in a variety of productions such as Holby City, and in the official trailer of the Bob Ross documentary on Netflix that aired in 2021. He also recorded an album with composer Brian S. Carr with the Budapest Art Orchestra. At the end of 2021, Jelle started a collaboration with vocalist Julie Elven who at the time was working on the soundtrack of “Horizon Forbidden West” from Playstation studio Guerilla Games.
