Music for Film, Games and TV affords students 13+ an exciting opportunity to write their own soundtracks to Hollywood blockbusters, epic video games and favorite TV shows. In a creative and supportive environment, students will gain fundamental skills, with particular emphasis on composing for media; as well as learn the ins-and-outs of digital audio production, including a full introduction to Apple's Logic Pro X. The camp begins with an overview of how music interacts with moving pictures. Then, we'll develop tools to analyze "the dramatic arc" from a composers point of view.
We'll focus on how musical form derives from the dramatic flow of the story and watch great examples. We'll also learn real-world stuff like spotting sessions, temp music, choosing a "sound palette", mock-ups, music supervision and how to work with directors. Regardless of what software students use, we'll jump in and write for various scenes and characters. We'll tailor our projects to each student's interests. Both beginner and more-experienced students welcome.
Students do not need to have prior experience although it is helpful to have some basic ability recording audio or MIDI in Apple's Garageband and/or Logic.
