Film Scoring with Hollywood-Bound Will VDC

Will-Van-De-CrommertWill Van De Crommert produces Hollywood-quality film scores in a humble basement studio at Saint John’s University. We talk about composing for film, his portfolio for USC Film School, and how to produce an endorphin-releasing pop tune.

We also discuss “spotting” films to plan where music should go. One of the trickiest things for a new film composer is deciding when the music should simply create a mood and when the music should do a bit of “Mickey-mousing,” which refers to composing obvious musical cues to fit the visuals.
