Brian's recent trip to Arizona to conduct the film scoring workshop and live scoring session was a complete success. Director Jared Potter's film VOYAGER will premiere at the Fox Theater in downtown Tucson on Saturday, May 14th at 7pm. Below is a little teaser of Brian's score edited together with live footage from one of the sessions in AZ.
Brian has been invited to speak next week, April 15th at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. The University of Arizona School of Theatre, Film & Television, the Hanson Film Institute an Xerox presents a film scoring seminar/workshop and recording session to be headlined by Brian on April 15th, 2011. The presentation will take place in the Harvell Bldg, Room 104 at 10:30am - 12:00 noon and is open to all students. Followed by a pizza lunch. At 1:30pm - 5:00pm, a live demonstration film scoring recording session will take place in the School of Music recording studio, music room 57 (basement). NOTE: Due to limited space in the recording studio, to attend the recording session, you must have signed up for a 30-minute slot during the previous session. The lecture portion of the event will be focused on the process of scoring music for film and television. Topics will be discussed from both a music viewpoint and a filmmaking viewpoint. So both film students and music composition or performance students interested in film scoring are encouraged to attend. Brian will also answer any questions students might have about the process and provide some audio/video examples and demonstrations of the process of scoring a scene.
For the recording session in the afternoon, the event will not only serve the purpose of recording music for Jarrod Potter's thesis film VOYAGER...but it will also serve as a live demonstration of the recording process of cues with live musicians.
Many thanks to Dan Brock who has put a lot of time and effort in organizing this event, to the U of Az School of Theater, Film & Television, professor Jeff Haskell and the School of Music and Wiley Ross from the U of Arizona recording studio.
