Hi, some of you have been asking for more details about tonight's meeting. Tonight is a chance for those interested in being on a film team to meet each other and start teaming up. This includes directors, actors, videographers, lighting, sound, costume and make-up, special effects, and custom soundtrack composers.
Tonight is a good night for you to attend if you are interested in creating custom soundtracks for a film team. This requires that you can quickly compose, record, and edit instrumental music. You will most likely need a mobile professional quality Digital Audio Workstation (Logic, ProTools, Digital Performer, Sonar/Cakewalk, etc.), keyboard, mics, and know how to use it. Bring business cards with a link to examples of your compositions and give them to the teams that are forming. Many teams are moving towards custom soundtracks composed on the weekend of the event, this is a good opportunity for you producers/composers in the MeetUp.
If you have pre-recorded songs you'd like to submit for use in movies but do not have the capability to compose and record on the fly, you really don't need to attend tonight. But don't despair, over the coming months we will allow you to submit pre-recorded songs that will be featured on a custom website that the film makers use to find "canned" or pre-recorded music. Many of our members have pre-recorded songs that are featured in the movies, but those decisions are made mostly on-line at a later date. Details on that later.
This year our members Unison Goody and Jason Haury will be our coordinators for the 48Hour Film Project. They know this event very well, and they won the "Best Original Soundtrack" award last year. They will be there tonight to help answer any questions and promote our capabilities to the film teams.
On Feb 20th at our MeetUp we will go over this year's 2 film projects we're involved with in detail and give you tips on how to increase your chances of getting your music in a film.
