Music plays a vital role in shaping the world of a film, yet it is often not considered until very late in the independent filmmaking process. By advocating for early collaboration between composers, sound designers, and filmmakers, the goal is to approach music as fundamental to the overall creative process. Sundance Institute’s Film Music Program provides insight into the process and industry through its intensive annual Labs as well as its condensed daylong ComposersLab: LA.
Take a peek inside the world of film and television music during two upcoming ComposersLab: LA events.
ComposersLab: LA – On Stage (March 30) will provide an intimate behind-the-scenes look into the creative process of Harry Gregson-Williams (the Shrek series, The Chronicles of Narnia, Kingdom of Heaven, Man on Fire, Spy Game), one of the most successful and exciting film composers working today.
ComposersLab: LA (April 12) offers a series of informative conversations, presentations, and networking opportunities with renowned composers and industry professionals, including recent Academy Award nominee Thomas Newman and Emmy nominees Jeff Beal, Trevor Morris, and Anton Sanko.
