It's said that music makes a film come alive. As an independent filmmaker, how and when do you choose the right music for your film, especially if you have a small or nonexistent budget? Is it better to use a composer or to license music, and what is the difference? Jen will give you pointers and answer your burning questions in this mini-class which is open to filmmakers of all experience levels. Students will have an opportunity to show a clip from their film, with or without music. ****Supplies Students Need to Bring To Class: Notebook (paper or digital) Film clip (optional) Favorite music (also optional)
