Film Scoring Tips first year is being an incredible journey! Only weeks ago we introduced our LABS columns, to which you responded enthusiastically. Following Dario Marianelli’s entry we enriched the series Tips From The Stars with an article written for us by the immense John Ottman, that was read hundreds of times. We just concluded a fantastic series aimed at composers assistants that is enlightening to say the least. But believe it or not we are still saving the best bits for the coming months! You might want to keep an eye on this space if you are big on birthday parties…but this article is about something else: our first, brand new podcast:

Filmmakers Feedback


In this podcast I will discuss with different filmmakers their relationships with composers.

Over the course of the episodes I’ll focus on drawing parallels between the reviewing methods of our various guests and find patterns that can help the listeners better understand the joint creative process and everything involved when formulating and receiving feedback

The show features a live demonstration of the music review phase where the guests asses tracks composed ad hoc by readers of Film Scoring Tips on a scene previously shared by the filmmakers.


My first guest is filmmaker A. Bodin Saphir. Alexander is a successful film producer, writer and director (Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?, Far), and playwright (Rosenbaum’s Rescue). My guest for episode II is film producer Fraser Brown (Orphans & Kingdoms, McLaren, Born Racer). My guest for episode III is writer and director Lance S. A. Nielsen (The Journey). We will announce further guests’ names in the coming weeks.

Schedule, duration and format

The show will have a monthly release schedule and will count 12 episodes in its first season. Episode 1 will be released in July. Every episode will be around 50 minutes long. We will be offering the show in Podcast form and in video form.

Sneak peek

Even if we are still a few weeks away from the launch of Filmmakers Feedback I’d love to share with you a few glimpses of what we are cooking for you.


First here is a little trailer we put together for the show:

Episode 1 preview

Next watch the first minute of episode 1, where you can hear a little bit about A. Bodin Saphir and some of the topics will touch on the show.

Show intro

Finally here is our show intro, I think it came along glorious. We are grateful to Mitch Martinez for his awesome footage.


Make sure you check our podcast page on anchor to find the show and subscribe to it on your favourite platform. There you’ll also see a “send voice message” button. Use it to record a question you’d like to ask our filmmakers. I’ll play some of them during the show.
