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!
