From web series to television pilots, short films to feature films, I have scored multiple genres including horror, science fiction, action and comedy and written songs of all styles including pop, rock and country. Most recently, I completed the score for the soon to be released feature film ZombieCON. In theater, I wrote the book, lyrics and music for Class Act the Musical. I have also published two works of fiction, "The Secret of Tibesti Massif" and "The Quest for the Wizard's Ring".
The process starts with picking the right sonic palette for your project. With an arsenal of tools, sound libraries, instruments and musicians available, I will design a unique musical landscape that brings your film to life. Above, I am working with Nashville producer Gary Carter on a new mix for my original theme song for Redneck Weddings.
Many projects call for original songs, whether to reinforce an emotion in a montage, to serve as a theme song for a series, or to drive up excitement in the credits. The above photo is from the web series Class Act which features several original songs, including a theme song. Songs are available on iTunes.

In addition to writing the theme song and creating the score, I also developed and wrote the series. This s a wonderful series of podcasts for anyone interested in the creation of a web series.
Class Act features a cast of aspiring young actors in an acting class taught by the caring Jamie. She is supported by her friends including an Indie Film Maker, a fellow actress and a talented musician. They are pitted against the evil casting director Zelda!
The Quest for the Wizard’s Ring tells the story of two brothers who are caught in an attack on their home by a Demon Lord and his vast army. Chaant, the younger brother, is a mage while Ky’el is a skilled warrior. As the citizens of Almarra shelter from the onslaught behind the great wall that encircles their home, Chaant ventures out on a quest to find and serve a wizard so he can earn a powerful enchantment with which to help his people. He is joined by the mysterious Anjelica, a young woman with hidden powers that even she doesn’t fully understand.
Midwest Book Review: "An inherently absorbing and fully entertaining action/adventure fantasy novel by an author with a genuine flair for the kind of entertaining and narrative driven storytelling that keeps and holds the reader's rapt attention from beginning to end, The Quest for the Wizard's Ring by Robert A. Valle will prove to be an immediately welcome and enduringly popular addition to community library Science Fiction & Fantasy collections."
In this homage to Edgar Rice Burroughs, a WWII American B-24 bomber is badly damaged over North Africa and forced to crash into a large cavern in the desolate Tibesti region. Captain David Ardell and his men discover a vast underground grotto that is home to a prehistoric jungle. There they find the remnants of a University expedition that had been attacked by the savage inhabitants of the strange world. Although its declared mission is to find fossils, the expedition leader, Professor Natalie Morgan, is secretly searching for traces of Egyptians that had traveled to Tibesti Massif long ago. Ardell and his men, along with the survivors of the expedition, must use their wits to escape the dangerous grotto while unraveling the mystery of the Egyptians that had traveled there thousands of years ago.
