Donna is a "key part of the music team on any film or show I do, her attention to detail in contracts, licensing agreements is stellar"
She's a brilliant songwriter / performer and has a knack for understanding the need for original material and creating it very quickly.
She's been awarded for the work she's done for me, including winning Best Original Song for "Cat Dexx: Inkosi" at the Show Low Film Festival and on my recent feature film, "Turnover", where two of her songs she co-wrote were in Oscar consideration!

I've worked with Donna Britton "Bukevicz" as a music supervisor for several projects since 2012 and consider her a key part of the music team on any film or show I do. Her ability to find the right music and people for a project is incredible, plus I really appreciate her attention to details in contracts/agreements. Along with those skills, she's a brilliant songwriter / performer and has a knack for understanding the need for original material and creating it very quickly. She's been awarded for the work she's done for me, including winning Best Original Song for "Cat Dexx: Inkosi" at the Show Low Film Festival and on my recent feature film, "Turnover", where two of her songs she co-wrote were in Oscar consideration!
Two of my favorite projects we worked on together included "Halloween Party" a comedy with 28 original songs, 8 of which were written specifically for our movie with our opening song in Oscar consideration in 2013. Donna's guidance on that project was invaluable with the level of music needed, and how closely worked together to pull together the right pieces. She also was instrumental in helping us put together an award winning soundtrack from the movie. The second was a short we filmed in 2017 called "Passage". Donna wrote several original songs, including the opening and ending song, and again assisted in the creation of the soundtrack. I can't imagine working without her not only for her expertise, but also because we have become friends and she really cares about everything she does. If you want someone who will give you 125% all the time, hire Donna. You'll be glad you did! Linda Palmer , Producer, Runaway Productions
"We hired Donna to be our music supervisor after I worked with her on another feature. Donna is very talented and best of all very knowledgeable about the industry. She also has a lot of contacts and a huge variety of artists to pull from. Being the fabulous team player that she is, I know our Christmas film is in capable hands." Martina Webster , Darmar Production, LLC. www.imdb.me/martinawebster
"Donna was our music supervisor for our film "Turnover," and I was so incredibly impressed. Not only is Donna is an incredible talent in her own right, but she has the rare ability to choose the right artist for any particular project. Our film was lifted by the talent that she brought to us, and I would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone's film project. I was honored to have worked with such an amazing artist, and I hope that we come together on a future project." ~ Rae Davis, Producer, "Turnover
