Workshop: working with a composer

Filmmaking truly is a team sport! The process requires the combined efforts of both creative and technical people if it’s to work. One of the key creative inputs is the music, which means that most directors and producers will work with a composer in the process of making their films. The right music can elevate a story and capture the audience’s attention by evoking deep-seated emotions. 

In this 90-minute workshop, music composer Navid Lancaster will guide participants through the process of composing a film score and the relationship between composer and director. He will delve into the importance of serving the story and the director’s vision to translate the intended meaning into music.
