Panel - M for Montreal and Avalanche Sound Publishing present: “Music, composers, musicians and films: zooming in the creative process”
It goes without saying that music in films and television plays a huge role in the development of the narrative. Even though they are completely different mediums, this panel discussion will tackle the creative process and will attempt to understand these two fields one at a time. We will also discuss the way music comes in the process as well as how music supervisors work in well-defined parameters or not, with composers or with songs that already exist. Finding conciliation will also be addressed: how do directors, composers and/or music supervisors manage to find a common ground and agree? Should music be a priority?
