Live Film Scoring

This week we are continuing to explore musical elements and composition on the iPad. Today we’re looking at how film scores are created. A film score is original music written specifically to accompany a film or video. We all have a favourite movie theme tune or song (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Frozen..!) – the film score can make a movie!

Below are four different videos. Note: you must watch these WITHOUT sound! You can watch all four but you must choose only one to create and record your own digital film score for.

Using Garage band, you will create your own film score for a selection of one of the videos. In your group, one person can access the video on one iPad and record your layers of instruments and sound on another iPad.
