Discovering & Developing the Score
About the Workshop
Michelangelo once posited that the sculptor's job is to discover the statue that already exists, hidden, within a block of stone. Benjamin Botkin is no Michelangelo, but in this talk he will attempt to explain the process of discovering and developing the great film score that will uniquely complement your film. Learn about story analysis, developing themes and motives, picking musical ideas that are appropriate for the scene, and more. Do not expect to learn much about sculpting.
