I am glad to see the academy rolling out more of these events!
“This three-evening seminar series offers a detailed look at the music scoring process from the perspective of motion picture composers themselves. Each week’s topic will be illuminated by film clips, on-stage discussions with guests (subject to availability) and questions from the audience. Each session will begin with a film clip illustrating two different scores for the same scene.”
Sept. 20 – Traditional Scores
Moderated by Charles Bernstein (Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision, Cujo), with Lalo Schifrin (Rush Hour, Cool Hand Luke), and Jan Kaczmarek (Finding Neverland, Unfaithful)
Sept. 27 – Alternative Scores
Moderated by Bruce Broughton (Lost in Space, Silverado), with Mychael Danna (Little Miss Sunshine, Capote), Mark Isham (Crash, A River Runs through It) and Rolfe Kent (Sideways, Election)
