ABOUT THIS MODULE

Music is as much of a performer in a scene as the actor or the camera.  It’s movements, tone, and intensity help shape the emotion of the moment.  But, like any performance, the right performance can bring added life to the scene, but too much can overwhelm the moment, pulling the audience out of the story.  In this module, you will learn how to balance music's role in a movie against the other dramatic elements, tips and techniques for creating a compelling score that supports the emotion of the movie, and how to avoid overscoring.

IN THIS MODULE

  • 28:25 video that takes you through the process of creating emotion through music
  • Illustrated companion guide

LEARN

  • How to balance the emotional impact of music with the actors' performance
  • How to avoid the pitfalls of overscoring the movie
  • How to factor the role of music into the movie when working on set
The videos are a big leap forward for contemporary classroom videos, utilizing clean greenscreen, working professionals and 16:9. The film is well-paced and will be a great addition to classroom instruction. It is designed and constructed in ways both interesting and accessible to student filmmakers. I hope to utilize the material in my classroom!”
