"...I really enjoy working with characters’ motivations. I love it when someone says something but means or feels something else and I'm asked to reflect that in the music. To be involved at that level in the storytelling is a real thrill..."
Some comments about Garry's music...
"...Garry created a score with atmosphere, drama, comedy & tenderness. A proper professional - calm, collaborative & with talent & creativity.
If you work with him, he'll give you all of those things too." John Dower (Director-Signs of Life/Eastenders/Wolfblood)
"...whenever possible I want to go with the very best for my projects from the right director of photography to the make up artist. The same also applies for the very best in music, and one of the main composers I always turn to is Garry Judd. I’m never disappointed as he continues to produce some of the best music that helps bring my projects to life." Jamie Langton (Director-Take Two, The Hotel, The Only Way Is Essex)
"...Garry’s music is fantastic, and always spot-on for the tone and atmosphere of my films. He gets it immediately, and he adds so much fun and energy to his work, it lifts the whole piece tremendously..." Eddie Green (Director - First Class Male, Tommy The Tungsten Robot)
Quiet Comes the Dawn has superb use of audio too, which helps build some tremendous tension with the film. The audio, in particular the bassline hum that proliferates the soundtrack, sometimes assaults the senses making the audience feel closer to what we’re seeing on screen; and in some cases in just as dangerous a situation! - Nerdly, Phil Wheat
What I did feel was Garry Judd’s music, though: often hypnotic, and frequently changing style with the bizarre scenes, the score added to the sense that I may have been sharing their dreams. - Readysteadycut.com, Alix Turner
