Our Concept & our Team

A Premium & Boutique Film Composers Talent Agency

When it comes to our agency, Creatives never feel that they are talking with a mediator. At OTICONS we care about your vision and aim to help you acquire the most fitting film scoring talent to your project's needs. You will always feel like you are talking with another Creative. We read your scripts, check your lookbooks and pitch decks, watch dailies and trailers, and after talking extensively with you, we pitch you the right talent from our pool of composers.

 This is what makes OTICONS a truly international and one-of-kind Film & Media Composers Talent Agency.

George Christopoulos

"Music should be an extra invisible element that adds Life to a Film, not one more headache for a Production."
George has been a film and film music enthusiast for over 15 years when he decided to become a talent agent after touching base with Shigeru Umebayashi (a.k.a. Ume) back in 2005, who - as Ume himself stated - "has been the first European who ever contacted me". Former to that he was a prolific designer, director and producer of artistic and corporate multimedia events internationally. Since 2010 he's one of the most energetic film composers agents, consultants and educators in Europe.

Stavros Platsis

"There is no bigger satisfaction than to share with the world, partners and services that turn ideas into films."
Stavros has been a business man and enterpreneur for over 25 years already. He started his own Graphic Design Agency in Athens, Greece, in 1990, but several more businesses along the way in different territories. He has always been a Creative person, so his love for cinema and music finally found a way to be expressed with Oticons, which he co-founded with one of his oldest friends and collaborators, George Christopoulos.

The name "oticons" is a combination of the ancient Greek words "ota" (ears) and "ikon" (image). We created it in order to give our very own definition of Film Music: images which can be heard, music which can tell a story; or in one word... Oticons. Based on that concept, Oticons Ltd., was founded as a Talent Agency for Film Composers. It operates globally and specializes in facilitating international co-productions.

As a Europe-based agency, naturally our niche is to work with independent filmmakers on their projects, always trying to help them find the right Music solutions; within Brief, Deadline & Budget, no matter how low or high, complicated or not. This approach in conjunction with our expertise in international co-productions, has been a key factor for our success all these years. Our focus is simple: to always successfully match-make the right composer with the right director and the right story, facilitating at the same time all production aspects and/or co-production limitations.

And we could only accomplish that if we were representing outstanding talents, film scoring artists with a unique voice, flexibility & versatility, and music production capacities that are able to make happy any producer and any director of any kind of audiovisual project.

The Formula for International Co-Productions

When we're dealing with international co-productions the 4 Steps remain the same; nevertheless they get a lot more complicated. In a co-production scheme, MUSIC becomes an element that is broken-down to many more elements-services that have to carefully be explored, selected, hired and contracted based on various parameters, limitations and prerequisites. Depending on (i) what co-producer you seek or you have found already and (ii) the funds your majority or minority co-producers bring in from their national fund - and in extent specific spending requirements, then the budgeting and financing of Music becomes a bigger headache.

In the following documentation, which was commissioned by the Mannheim Meeting Place Int'l Co-Production Event, you will find a more comprehensive analysis of the above steps but also it addresses in a detailed manner further topics.
