This course will provide opportunities for scoring scenes that use the same thematic material for one movie. Students will learn to create appropriate themes, develop variations, create a suite of proposed thematic material for a director, and score several scenes from the same film. Students will use MIDI sequences as well as live players to record their projects. All recorded projects will be conducted by the composers and screened for faculty evaluation. This course will also cover the basic knowledge of the music business as it relates to the film composer. Topics to be discussed will include initial meetings with directors, royalties, contracts, agents, the musicians union, and budgeting for a project.
