I’m really excited to again be moderating a panel discussion on music in film and the director/composer relationship at the Worldwide Short Film Festival this year.  I’ll be speaking with director Nicolas Brault and composer Pierre Yves Drapeau about their wonderful animated film The Circus, and composer John Rowly about his excellent work in Defendor.

PANEL: They Shoot! They Score! Music & Film

Presented By Screen Composers Guild of Canada & SOCAN
Having your film scored may arguably be one of the most mysterious, terrifying, and exciting aspects of the filmmaking process. Join us as we talk candidly about how filmmakers and composers can connect, effectively communicate, and collaborate as a winning team. We’ll look at the role of music in film, the process of scoring to picture (with examples from working composers), as well as the business side of the equation including budgets, rights, and royalties.
Moderator: Adrian Ellis, Composer, THE UNINVITED
John Rowley, Composer, DEFENDOR
Nicolas Brault, Director, THE CIRCUS
