Tim Rodier is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music with no less than a dual major in composition and film scoring. He has since become a successful composer and orchestrator with dozens of top credits to his name: Among other things, he orchestrated on Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Little Fockers and Into the Wild as well as the TV show Duets. Music prep credits include A-list titles such as Saving Mr. Banks, Skyfall, Men in Black 3, The Iron Lady, Despicable Me, WALL-E, Jarhead, Spider-Man 2, Charlotte’s Web and the TV series Angels in America.

In addition, Tim is also the founder and owner of Omni Music Publishing, a successful publishing company with the goal to make full film scores available to the public. Scores available through what composer Austin Wintory calls “a legitimate goldmine” are some of the great classics of film music history: Bernard Herrmann’s North by Northwest, Basic Instinct by Jerry Goldsmith and Elmer Bernstein’s score to Ghostbusters have found a permanent home here, as have Don Davis’ The Matrix, Danny Elfman’s Batman and Batman Returns, all-time favorite The Wizard of Oz by Herbert Stothart, Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg and James Horner’s Willow.

And after a long battle with a life-threatening liver disease that required multiple transplants in 2019, Tim and Omni Music Publishing have more titles are in the works.
