“The Minions Do the Actual Writing”: The Ugly Truth of How Movie Scores Are Made

A thought-provoking article. BTW, I have a PDF if you're unable to read it online. https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2022/02/the-ugly-truth-of-how-movie-scores-are-made?fbclid=IwAR1YvU23PcZAjZKPUQhNuL2Lsim-UWKgbCdXYtOA4cSMXsZimf0xiwCrdps

The streaming revolution is changing the way film composers get paid and exposing the flaws of a system where big names farm their scores out to uncredited “ghost composers.” Now, the artists actually writing the music are demanding recognition—and a fair share of the profits.

Congrats to our Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema #classof2020 alums whose Thesis film, BLUEPOINT is premiering at the International Ocean Film Festival in San Francisco TONIGHT, April 15th until May 2nd ! 🌊 www.intloceanfilmfest.org/ioff2021 TRAILER HERE: https://vimeo.com/535661971 Synopsis: In a rugged fishing town at the end of Long Island, Bella's marriage is tested when an algae bloom threatens her family oyster business. Director: Alley Leinweber Screenwriter: Zoe Fleer Producer: Paulina Erni Associate Producer: Waleed Bedour Cinematographer: Teresa Torchiano Editor: Reweina Tessema Composer: Noah Chevan The International Ocean Film Festival is taking place virtually this year from April 15 - May 2, 2021. #ioff will be bringing together filmmakers representing 80+ films from around the world, along with ocean industry experts, to act as a voice for the ocean. What IOFF judges say about Bluepoint: On Long Island’s east end, Bella (Courtney Stallings) and husband Noah (Jack Sachot) struggle to maintain their bluepoint oyster business against an onslaught of algal blooms, red tides and other threats from an ailing ocean. Bella is also struggling to resist a temptation embodied by Celeste, a friend who awakens her to the absence of sensuous warmth in her relationship to the taciturn Noah. Superbly acted, written, directed, shot and edited, with a spot-on soundtrack, this is an absolute gem of a film about a human relationship under stress. . . .
