CreativeLIVE Modern Film Composing TUTORIAL
A film’s score is so much more than background music. It creates a mood, shapes the story, and influences the way viewers interpret the action. In Modern Film Composing, Will and Brooke Blair (“The Blair Brothers”) will examine the art and illuminate the science of scoring moving media.
You can hear The Blair Brothers’ work in award-winning features (from indie films to Disney), documentaries, commercials, and television shows.
In this class, they’ll share their expertise and help you:
- Find the style and tone of music that best suits your film
- Create dynamic musical elements that fall within your budget
- Improve your collaboration with composers
During the class, Will and Brooke will also score two CreativeLive student films – one prepared in advance and one scored live on air – to lend an artistic insider’s view to the film scoring process and results. The Blair Brothers will also discuss their professional trajectory and how they maintain careers as composers.
