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!
The Forte Composer Academy is a great tool to help composers master the art of film scoring. Whether you are a seasoned in film scoring or just starting out, I guarantee that you will benefit from these courses. The practical advice alone that Benjamin Botkin gives throughout the course is invaluable. I have thoroughly enjoyed Benjamin Botkin’s Forte Composer Academy and I look forward to taking more courses in the future.
