So after months of chiselling away at your picture lock, you look up and realize you have no idea how to find a soundtrack or commission a score. Or: you’ve got a couple of albums under your belt (and a SoundCloud bursting with new tunes) and you think you’d like to try your hand at writing for movies. Good news! We’ve collected a panel of music-savvy filmmakers and film-savvy musicians who are ready to drop knowledge on composing for films, finding the right soundtrack, and everything else to do with that almost-mystical element that only truly great film music can bring. Stick around after the talk to mingle and maybe find your next collaborator!
