One of the toughest objectives in this business is writing music for commercials. Fortunately, Emmy-winning composer Silas Hite is here to help, with his full-featured new Commercial Scoring Workshop (taking place in partnership with iZotope).
This highly educational event is happening on September 6th, 9th, and 11th. Participants can either attend in person in Los Angeles, or via World Wide Web conference.
Designed to give insight and experience to musicians who are interested in writing music for commercials, Hite’s workshop consists of three 3-hour classes and a one-on-one career assessment and guidance meeting.
Music skills and business smarts get major coverage in this workshop.
In the first class, participants will be given a real commercial to score, along with creative direction on how to begin. In subsequent classes the scores will be reviewed and constructive feedback and guidance will be given. Each class will also feature lectures and Q&A sessions to address the many aspects of the commercials scoring industry, from creative considerations, to budgets and contracts. Example lecture topics include:
1. The creative and business differences related to scoring commercials vs. films, video games and television.
2. The differences between music licensing, work-for-hire, and working at a music house vs. being a freelance composer.
3. How to look for scoring jobs, what you need to do to get them, and how to make the most of the music you have already created.
