Russ Makiwicz started composing soundtracks in 2008, and has since created music and sound design for a variety of TV commercials, short film, documentaries, radio jingles and interactive museum soundtracks.
In his music, Russ combines his love of all things orchestral, with a certain affinity for the intimate, authentic expression of folk music, and a curious search for new electronic sounds. Having started out as a self taught film composer, in 2014 he earned a 'Specialist Certificate in Orchestration for Film and TV' at Berklee Online, as well as the Berklee Online Celebrity Scholarship Award.
