Filmmakers Feedback is part of the Film Scoring Tips labs. Make sure you check the other series out and help us shaping our future content.
Our guest for episode VIII is filmmaker Ana Pio (Eden, Ode, I Welcome You to This House).
Episode VIII – scene assignment
Would you like to have our guest assess your music during the episode? Check out this month’s assignment and submit your track using the form you can find further down.
Watch the clip selected by Ana from her film “Ode” and find the instructions to submit your track below.
You can download a copy of the above video here:
Ana asked us to share the following instructions: We used a temp music – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tBam6qXVDg -, which allowed us to edit the film to its pacing, for about: 58 seconds – introduction 50 seconds – development 40 seconds – conclusion. We are looking for the same sort of feeling that the temp music brings to the narrative, but with your personal touch.
A few recommendations
We kindly ask you to submit music you specifically create for this episode. Anything that we deem to be out of context will not be considered.
The submission form also serves as a legally binding license assignment document. Therefore we kindly ask to only submit music you own in its entirety. However we only ask for a non-exclusive license, meaning you will still be able to use the music on other projects.
The file format must be MP3 and the file-size must be under 5MB. In case you come up with a larger file-size please re-compress it using a lower bitrate. To make sure we’ll sync your music correctly please include the sync pop that you can hear on the number “2” of the initial countdown (at timecode 00:59:58:00).
Please submit your track by Thursday January 30 at 11:59PM (GMT).
