Day 224: What I Love About Scoring for Film

Yesterday I shared a new scoring project I did for a TV clip dated 1944 of “Captain America.” I found this project very energizing and wanted to write in more detail what I loved about it.

What I Loved About This Project

  • I get practice scoring to real film footage.
  • The footage is copyright free (I will do my best to make sure of it), so I can share it freely.
  • I have always wanted to write music for film, and this is an excellent way to build a “portfolio” of work (and YouTube is a great place to share said portfolio).
  • I can gain skill in this area and work the kinks out in a fun way that is great training.
  • I get to write music and be creative!
  • I feel ideally suited to the medium of scoring for film. I love writing music on the computer, and I also enjoy working with the film (also on the computer) to tailor the music to match the visual medium.
  • It’s fun, it’s satisfying!
