Wide Blue Sky

Join us for a candid conversation with four busy indie film composers, each forging their own unique career paths by pursuing individual goals, exploring their passions, and pushing their own talents to the max. In other words, following their hearts — how does an artist navigate the industry? We’ll explore creative process, collaboration, composition and production, career development, entrepreneurialism, and business models. Some of us have films in the festival about which we can get into specifics. Come if you’re a filmmaker wanting to delve into the power of musical narrative. Come if you’re a composer/musician who wants to hear the experiences of other music people who love to tell stories. Come if you’re a movie fan who wants to get behind the scenes in this wonderful aspect of filmmaking. And bring your questions!
