Raphael Fimm is an award-winning German film composer, orchestrator and arranger based in Vienna, Austria. From an early age on he has been fascinated by the power of music and the art of creating emotions through it. Playing the piano since childhood, he soon got more interested in not only playing existing music but started to write his own compositions. 


In 2011 he interned with German film composer Gert Wilden Jr. in Munich, Germany from whom he learned a lot about the whole process of scoring a film. Realizing music being a very important storytelling device in films, Raphael then studied Media Composition at the SET School of Entertainment & Technology in Cologne, Germany for which he received a full scholarship. He later deepened his knowledge by taking Orchestration, Composition and Film Scoring courses at Berklee College of Music

Over the past years, Raphael has scored many films including the German cycling documentary Tour du Togo (2020) and the multi-award-winning Canadian documentary The Sunrise Storyteller (2017) which premiered at the UN in New York. Raphael also composed the music for the South African romantic comedy Zulu Wedding which hit theaters in October 2019.

His numerous works won awards at the Hollywood Art & Movie Awards, the Sunlight International Film Festival and the Global Music Awards.

For him, film music must not only support the movie, but has to have an own character and be able to tell the story of the film in its own language. Using the variety of an orchestra, Raphael is anxious to give every film a unique and personal musical language that forms the perfect symbiosis of picture and music.
