Music & Independent Film

An integral part of the total cinematic experience and too often an after-thought in post-production, music for independent filmmaking will be discussed by David Newman, director of music programs for the Sundance Institute and composer of THE BRAVE LITTLE TOASTER and THROW MAMA FROM THE TRAIN. Mr. Newman will cover such areas as cost and practicalities, philosophy, methods, and goals of composing for quality low-budget films.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. 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.
