Lectures Overview

I discuss the bolder choice of dark-gothic film noir style for this movie. How the studio wanted something more conventional but thanks to director supporting my vision we get a much better result for the overall film and story arc.

In-depth look at the theme and orchestration of a particular score and scene. How descending story arc can play a role in a descending theme.

Every scene needs musical inspiration. Sometimes this can be found by drawing from the events and location around you.

Discussion on the extreme differences between working on a film vs. a TV show. Also play-by-play description of dealing with a Temp track and how to emerge the hero.

This is Ed Wood's last script, a silent film entitled "I Woke Up Early The Day I Died." I discuss the interesting score choices and challenges for this truly whacky cult film, then play the opening scene.

The technical requirements of recording, mixing, and final delivery to the dubbing stage.

Discussion of a film's budget. The amounts allocated for original score and for songs. Explanation of the "package deal" which most contracts now use.
