Score: A Film Music Documentary
Sponsored by the Ed Berkowitz Film Education Fund.
What makes a film score unforgettable? SCORE: A FILM MUSIC DOCUMENTARY brings Hollywood’s elite composers together to give viewers a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy of the world’s most international music genre: the film score. The documentary contains interviews with dozens of film composers who discuss their craft while exploring the making of the most iconic and beloved scores in history: “James Bond”, “Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Titanic,” “The Social Network,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and “Psycho.”
Thu, Nov 30, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Told entirely through the perspectives of film composers, directors and musicians, SCORE reveals the inspiration, instrumentation, ideas, challenges and triumphs of creating the modern Hollywood soundtrack. After a screening of the documentary, writer/director Matt Schrader will speak about the process of making the film and how it grew from personal exploration of film music’s power into one of 2017’s most successful documentary films.
