Benjamin demystifies much of the film scoring process in this course (Film Scoring for Beginners), and I resonated with Ben’s emphasis on the EMOTIONAL role of music in film. Not only did I learn how to approach different genres of film music, but I also discovered some best practices of how to interact with movie directors and what to do in spotting sessions. If you’re looking for a course that leads you through the film scoring process, with plenty of examples and practical assignments along the way, you’ve come to the right place. Highly recommended!
