Filmmakers Feedback

Filmmakers Feedback

By Giovanni Rotondo
In this podcast hosted by Giovanni Rotondo, filmmakers discuss their relationships with composers.

The show features a live demonstration of the music review process where the guests asses tracks composed ad hoc by readers of Film Scoring Tips on a scene previously published by the filmmakers.

Over the course of the episodes we try to draw parallels between the reviewing processes of our guests and find patterns that can help the listeners better understand the joint creative process and everything involved when formulating and receiving feedback
