William Philipson

Screen Composer & Music Editor

William Philipson on SoundBetter

Professional screen composer. I have written music for multiple feature films. I strive to create music that will elevate storytelling, whether that is orchestral, ambient, electronic, or something entirely unique.

I am a Wellington-based composer and music editor, with a keen interest in creating and recording music for film.

I am connected with a network of world-class musicians and engineers, and I am able to take on projects both big and small.

I was the music editor for the 2020 feature documentary Helen Kelly – Together and worked as a composer on the 2020 horror-comedy film Dead, and the 2020 feature documentary High Tide Don't Hide. I have worked on projects with such organisations as Weta Workshop, Park Road Post & The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

I hold a Masters of Fine Arts (CP) in film scoring as well as a BA majoring in film and music from Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music at Victoria University of Wellington, wherein 2017 I was awarded the Susan Rhind Award in Composition.
