Music Editorial

  • Construct temporary scores from previously recorded music. A temp score allows the film to be screened before the original score is written and recorded, and provides a ‘road map’ for the composer with regard to tone and pacing;
  • Support composers during the writing, recording and post recording process to ensure that the director’s musical vision comes to life on the screen;
  • Work hand in hand with music supervisors to cut and shape any songs, making sure that any edits work musically and serve the visual image;
  • Ensure music copyright holders are accurately credited on the final cue sheet;
  • Prepare sequencing and perform special edits for any soundtrack releases.
