Why are we so captivated by the lives of musicians and bands, and how has that fascination been portrayed on screen thus far? How has the art of songwriting been depicted on screen, and what's the reality behind it? And how is music itself used in TV and films to enhance the storytelling experience?
Join us for an exciting panel discussion exploring two types of music stories for the screen: stories about music and stories told by the music itself as soundtrack or score. Our panellists bring a range of expertise to the table, from composition and music supervision to screenwriting and production. The panellists will discuss their experiences, the challenges of creating powerful music storytelling and what the future of this art may entail.
This event is open to Members and up to two guests. Attendees are invited to network after the panel discussion.
