During those years, Curtis worked on more than 90 projects, mostly feature films along with some movies for television and various television series. Along the way, Curtis worked with many legendary composers including Basil Poledouris, Marvin Hamlisch, Elliot Goldenthal, Michael Kamen, Mark Isham, and James Newton Howard. Some of Curtis’ credits include A Few Good Men, 3 Men and a Baby, Across The Universe, Frida (academy award winner for best score), X-men, and The Hunger Games.

In 2006 he created "The Score", a weekly celebration of symphonic music in the movies, now syndicated throughout America.  Edmund continues to voice commercials and emcee events. Notably, he narrated the west coast premiere of Ella Milch-Sheriff’s “Can Heaven Be Void” and Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. He voiced Vivaldi's sonnets to "The Four Seasons" with the Portland Baroque Orchestra.
