How to Work with a Composer - Indie Film Master Class by Sean William
This is the first in an ongoing series of monthly Master Class Lectures aimed at elevating the capacity of Vancouver-based independent filmmakers to consistently create world class content that is universally recognized as the best in the world.
We have a lot of filmmakers in Vancouver (a by-product of our generous tax incentives and being in the same time zone as LA), but we consistently fall short of creating internationally marketable or content that wins Oscars, Emmys and Palm D’Ors.
There are certainly other factors that play a role, but developing talent locally is something we can take control of by ourselves today.
To that end, each month, emerging filmmakers in Vancouver will have the opportunity to learn about a niche skill or film specialization to let them up their game.
Trembling Vøid is proud to present our very first speaker, the legendary composer, @Sean William, a rising star in our indie film scene whose score for Small Fish, a dialogue-free short film received the 2019 Leo Award for Best Musical Score in a Short Drama.
Specifically, Sean will provide key insights for emerging filmmakers on how best to work with a composer, how to get the most out of your film with music, and what to expect in terms of budget and workflow when collaborating with a composer.
Participants will learn how to best collaborate a composer to achieve the vision your film needs. Sean will offer a live demo of a score composition, offer best practices for directors and producers learned from working with dozens of filmmakers on a range of projects and budgets. Q&A to follow. Participants will also receive a link to the video taped session for future reference as well as other tools to help them plan their next film or video project.
