SCORE: A Film Music Documentary

Tracking the progress of modern-day film score development, this documentary illustrates how the first few notes on a piano keyboard end up in the most dramatic moments of a film’s emotional climax. Turning the spotlight on the creative struggles that make up a major motion picture score, this documentary showcases the way the world’s top soundsmiths solve musical challenges – from the creative to the technical. *Score was named Best Documentary at the 2017 Chicago Critics Film Festival.

Following the film, we will skype with Matt Schrader, the film’s director to learn more about the making of the film.

This event is being co-presented by the Lake Forest Symphony.

The First Thursdays Film Series is generously supported by Sheffield Foundation through the Gorton Producer Program.
