Detailed Bio coming soon.
David Gilchrist- California-born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, David was always drawn to orchestral film music and orchestral arrangements in folk and pop during the 70s and early 80s. Drawing from spaghetti westerns of the late 60s to film dramas of the 90s to the present, David has always been drawn to iconic imagery in film and the great modern composers that cemented those images into the minds of their generation. Aaron Copeland, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, James Horner and Thomas Newman are composers that have most shaped David's sound. From 2006 to 2010, David scored for two documentaries, three films and two albums. The highlight of David's career occurred when he composed the underscore for the film, “The Widow's Might”, the grand prize winner of $101,000 at the 2009 San Antonio Independent Film Festival Award.

Curb Word Entertainment
Owned and operated by Mike Curb, Curb Records (Curb I Word Entertainment) is one of the most successful independently owned Record labels in the world! Mike Curb purchased Word Records in 2016 and the two companies merged (Curb I Word Entertainment).
Special thanks to Trey Smith for this strategic partnership with Curb Word and United Christian Artists Music Arm.
United Christian Artists is friends with Adam She, formerly the President of AMTC to help you advance to their “front line” of talent scouts and agencies
AMTC realizes that no life goes untouched by media. Film, fashion, music and theater influence us like never before. Their “stars” have become the standard-bearers for our children. An average teen spends 75 hours a week in media which escalates to over 60,000 hours by the age of 17.
At AMTC, we believe God has allowed such a time as this. Earth’s stage is set. Jesus the King is coming! Actors, models and talent for Christ are called to prepare the way for the return of the Lord. To clear up misunderstandings about who Jesus really is…and His unconditional love for us.

We offer special tools for team-building and negotiation for win/win situations. This is necessary for the ongoing success of aspiring filmmakers, production teams, directors, producers, actors, and writers.
