Roundtable Discussion - Music and Film: The Creative Process

What goes into a successful film score? What makes for an effective director/composer relationship? How do leading directors and composers talk to each other? What considerations are involved in deciding how much music, what kind of music, and where to place music?

Prominent composers and directors will engage in a lively discussion--with a focus on the creative process- about the current state of film music and the role of music in independent film. Audience participation will be encouraged.

Panelists include Kevin Bacon (Loverboy, Losing Chase); Michael Bacon (Brothers in Arms, Losing Chase); George S. Clinton (Austin Powers, A Dirty Shame); Rodrigo Garcia (Nine Lives); Peter Golub (The Laramie Project, director of Sundance Composers Lab); Rolfe Kent (Sideways, About Schmidt); Ed Shearmur (Nine Lives, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow); Richard Shepard (Matador); BT (Monster, The Fast and the Furious). Moderated by Doreen Ringer Ross, Vice President, Film and TV Relations at BMI.

Note: no ticket is required for this event.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
