Preview

Most film and television projects will benefit from having an original music score. A music score can add a heightened emotional layer that can often take a film or television drama to another level, greatly increasing its chances of success. Of course the need for a music score, its scale and budget, will depend on the genre of the project.  

You are a musician, a songwriter, an orchestral arranger with dozens of themes that could make a great music score. But where to start? What is the process of creating an original music score for the screen? How do you communicate with directors and producers who don’t necessarily express musical ideas in a clear way? How much can you be paid? What is the overall budget allocated to a composer to create a music score?

In this book written by Niall Byrne, one of Ireland’s most successful music composers, we will answer these important questions, taking you through the various steps you need to understand when creating a music score for a film project, whether it’s a short film, a feature film or a TV Series
