A common question I get form directors is “How do you like to talk about notes and feedback on your music?”. So I wrote a free pdf e-book for directors, producers and anyone who works with composers and musicians on their projects.
Fill out the form below to get your free copy of the 18 page e-book, The Filmmaker’s Guide to Giving Feedback on Music:
For many filmmaker’s, working with a composer is a difficult and uncertain process. Many times they know exactly what they want, but because they are not musical themselves they don’t know how to describe their vision. Or conversely if they are musicians, they may not know how to communicate effectively with the composer. This can result in long revision processes that seem to go nowhere, and even anxiety and a lack of confidence that the music is ever going to be right.
What filmmaker’s need is a way to effectively communicate with their composer in a way that is both results based and diplomatic, and that’s where this guide comes in.
The ideas and suggestions in this guide include:
• What language to use when talking about music.
• Why the story is the most important thing to discuss.
• When temp music is helpful and when it’s not.
• What to do when the direction of the music just isn’t working.
