Filmmaking is in part, about relationships. And one important relationship is between the two people that bring music and picture together, aka the composer and director.
I was asked to do the on set sound for a short film, a sci-fi drama written and directed by the ever-talented, Taegen Carter, whom I’ve worked with several times before. Not only was I going to do the music, I was asked to record the sound which I gladly jumped at the chance to do. What other way to actually be on set and participate in the production of a film than to be working on one part of a film I would be working with on the post side anyways? So what follows is my observations on the entire experience.
