I received good feedback after giving my workshop “Film Scoring For Film Makers” especially from a filmmaker who’s ready to start talking with a composer about the film’s music. They had gone out of their way to attend the workshop, postponing other activities to get there, and found the workshop very helpful at a crucial time in their production. It was rewarding to hear, and confirms my own dedication to teaching the workshop that tutors producers, directors and editors about the basics of spotting a film for music, and how to identify the musical shifts and changes within a film scene to accommodate the on-screen subject matter.
The music score is primarily drums and drumming, with a bit of added guitar, percussion and flutes, and I was very happy with how it turned out. Special shout out to Carlos Fernandez for the guitar work! I was beaming at the awards program, and honored to be the Waabooz composer working with such a great team!
