POST 328/428 Scoring for Film and Video
Autumn 2019. Wednesdays from 5:45-9 in CDM 922. Email email@example.com for questions.
Students are introduced to elements of music and ways in which these elements may be used to create a musical style that enhances the visual statement. Course emphasizes understanding the function of the score and how it relates to texture, color, and drama in music. Students explore their creativity using the tools available, work on projects of increasing complexity, and complete a score for their own film or video as a final project.
The class is designed for all student abilities and experiences. It's great for editors that want to know how scores work to directors who need to learn how to talk to composers to screenwriters who need to imagine how music functions in their scripts.
This course is only taught in Autumn and Winter.
