A lot of the posts on this blog have to do with cinematography and cameras and creating pictures for film. But, as the saying goes, sound is half of picture, and music is more than half of sound. I don’t think I’ve mentioned film soundtracks since we made the Men O’ War short, but it’s too important to ignore.
Fortunately, my brother Ben has just updated his website to include a blog, and he’ll be posting articles on everything from how to study a film score to reviews of different composers. Right now he’s got posts on the power of music, and a list of the top five pirate scores of all time. Check it out.
Another aspect of filmmaking that I rarely mention is acting. For my San Antonio readers, there’s a unique opportunity to study acting this July. Paul Tinder and Vaughn Taylor, who I first met at the SAICFF, will putting on a series of week-long acting workshops. Click here more information.
