Music in Post: The Key Players.

This panel includes an award-winning music supervisor, a music editor and a composer who offer advice on a smooth music production for film and television post production. Panelists will also show musical examples of their work and explain how they help to create a finished soundtrack. This event is specifically aimed at helping editors, producers, post supervisors and others to better understand the complexities of working with music during post.

Some of the topics that will be addressed during the panel:

What materials is an editor responsible for giving to each member of the music department?

What is the interaction with each other? Who works with who? Is there a hierarchy?

How to know whether or not a piece of music is working within a scene.

How do you communicate with music people if you aren't a musician?

How much creative control should you give a music supervisor or composer?
