WORKSHOP: INSIDE THE WORLD OF FILM COMPOSING

EVENTS

Mark Orton
Saturday, November 15, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Northwest Film Center School of Film
934 SW Salmon St.

Tuition: $45

This workshop delves into the business of writing original music for film and focuses on how the film director can best communicate with a composer. Starting with an overview of the instructor’s film palette and style, it will discuss such topics as: the types of film scores (original, licensed, public domain, live captured, sound design); film music budgeting; what happens before a composer is hired (the temp score, the cue sheet, demos, typical contracts, and budgets); how to work with a composer (the spotting session, what a composer needs technically, the adjusted cue sheet, giving notes, film music vocabulary, filing a finalized cue sheet, the illusive locked picture); and different types of music licenses and rights scenarios. MARK ORTON, founding member of the genre-bending acoustic chamber ensemble Tin Hat, has written original scores or contributed music to numerous films including MY OLD LADY, NEBRASKA, SWEET LAND, BOXTROLLS, THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN, BUCK, THE REVISIONARIES, Fernando Meirelles’s 360, Ken Burns’s THE ROOSEVELTS, and DRYLAND, which screens at 3:30 p.m. following the workshop.
