    score The Cue Tube Scoring Competition 2020

    There are a lot of hit points to play with aren't there? It was great fun to reflect the characters in the music and to nuance the soundtrack just like the action. Thank you for kind comments and for your advice. I really appreciate you listening and reviewing and I'm particularly thrilled you...

    score The Cue Tube Scoring Competition 2020

    Hi All! I recently entered this film scoring competition and I was wondering if anyone else on this forum did or had come across the site? The Cue Tube is a brand-new platform and it's only just getting started, but the ultimate aim is to allow composers to showcase their portfolios and give...

    Soundtrack composer available to collaborate

    I’ve been watching way too many crime TV series since lockdown began, so I decided to compose a quirky detective theme of my own! Hop over to my SoundCloud and please let me know what you think of β€˜Sleuth’, a short piece that would suit the opening titles of a light private investigator drama...

    watch Indie of the Month April - Social Distance Film Challenge

    Hyped for this challenge! I would be thrilled to collaborate on the soundtrack for an entry too, so please let me know if you're thinking of applying and would require a score. πŸ™‚

    suggestion Locking Old Threads

    I agree with all of the above, and I think I'm right in remembering that in the poll while back about what to do with old threads, members voted to keep them open and searchable forever, with only some extremely ancient and irrelevant content to be removed at the discretion of the moderators...

    Short Filmmaker in Wisconsin

    Got to admit (being myself significantly more petite than my peers), I initially read this title in a way that suggested you were a short filmmaker! πŸ˜† But yeah I've checked out your website and it looks good. πŸ™‚ I'm always up for collaborating, although I'm from the UK. My indietalk page is here.

    Anybody else stoked about MCU phase 4?

    @Cracker Funk your thoughts on the Sony split for Spider-Man? Or anyone else for that matter! 😁 Personally I think it's a real shame. I mean there are definitely interesting possibilities with Venom and other crossovers, but I honestly can't see how the next film will be able to gloss over the...

    watch Breaking Point - short film

    This is another very effective montage of different isolated lives sharing a connection (albeit through their TV screens), whilst poignantly presenting three tragedies: that of 9/11, that of the individual personal tragedies the characters experience and the tragedy that they are too engulfed in...

    format I need help with a scene

    I'm reminded of this short scene in Megamind. As opposed to watching the number of kids decrease as they're being picked, instead we just see him as being the last one picked. This still effectively gets the point across of his shame, sadness and feeling of being different but it also allows the...

    plot Don't Think About It So Much

    One thing I'd like to add to this great point (which works equally well for composing too), is that when you get that idea, WRITE IT DOWN! There have been many times when I've been struggling with the direction of the score or the orchestration or how to use the motif differently, so I've gone...

    movies Joker

    Personally, I like the MCU and all the interweaving threads of storyline, but I do agree that Joker looks good. Whether you like the MCU or not, you've got to admit that what James Gunn did with Guardians of the Galaxy was absolutely fantastic. It'll be interesting to see him bring that style...

    watch THE HAG IN THE HILLS (5m,49s Short)

    Before I start on the feedback, can I suggest straight away to anyone watching this video: find a dark room. This is not just to increase the scariness but to be able to see the film better (it's quite dark and I couldn't see it properly due to reflection on my screen the first time I tried)...

    legal Using licensed music in film

    Completely out of interest, what happens if you want to use the lyrics of a song in a script? Or even if you just want to quote what a famous person said in your script (e.g. Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela etc.)? Slightly answering my own question here, but I assume from this you would...
