Learn how to spot a movie…
…where music should be used and where it shouldn’t…
…and how to communicate with your director; smoothing things over when they go wrong!
01 - Getting Started:
Guy demonstrates how to setup your project and get video into your DAW. You’ll also learn some technical jargon relating to files and formats, so you’ll never be caught out!
02 – The Project:
Funnily enough, people management is an important skill to get to grips with when scoring films, and interpreting the brief and the clients’ wants/needs is also a key part of the process!
03 – Scoring Technique:
Spotting the film before you start is very important, but not always as straightforward as you might think. Guy explores tempo maps and different ways to approach the actual scoring part of the process.
04 – Telling Stories with Music:
Your score can breathe life into a director’s vision; this unit explores how to do that with multiple over-the-shoulder scoring demos in both Logic and Cubase.
05 – Delivering Your Music:
How to get the music from your DAW into the hands of the client and what you’re expected to deliver to them.
I really enjoyed the scoring demonstrations since I’ve have never actually watched anyone compose a theme using a full orchestra. It’s very enlightening!
Your instructional videos are very inspiring. The way you address issues is always clear, and sometimes hilarious, as you show also your own clumsiness when trying to find an interesting melody or chord progression.
