One of the most memorable aspects of a successful film is the music soundtrack. This weekend course is for students with a background in filmmaking or music composing who are looking to develop their understanding of developing music for film. You study what it is that makes good film music, how it is produced across the industry, the different types of music and what they are used for in film. You’ll also cover how to obtain the right music for a project and how to work with a music composer to get the best results.
Over the two days you cover:
