Score — A Film Music Documentary

Direc­tor: Matt Schrader

Win­ner of Best New Film­mak­er at the Boul­der Inter­na­tion­al Film Festival

Film music speaks to us in a lan­guage we can under­stand, but few of us can speak. But what if we could? How much more would we appre­ci­ate the tal­ents of these extra­or­di­nary musi­cal sto­ry­tellers? Score grew from the filmmaker’s per­son­al explo­ration of the pow­er of film music into a focused exam­i­na­tion of why we expe­ri­ence film music so deeply, and what goes into mak­ing the musi­cal scores in films so enthralling to audiences.

Told entire­ly through the per­spec­tives of film com­posers, direc­tors, and musi­cians, Score reveals the inspi­ra­tion, instru­men­ta­tion, ideas, chal­lenges, and tri­umphs of cre­at­ing the mod­ern Amer­i­can film soundtrack.

The film brings Hollywood’s pre­mier com­posers togeth­er to give view­ers a priv­i­leged look inside the musi­cal chal­lenges and cre­ative secre­cy of the world’s most wide­ly known music genre: the film score.
