Music from the Director’s Chair with Jason P. Schumacher

Jason Schumacher Director Composer Quest

Jason P. Schumacher has made a name for himself as a filmmaker in the Twin Cities, but he’s also had songwriting in the background of his life since high school. In this episode of Composer Quest, we talk about Jason’s first official EP, Dumpster Baby, which is kind of a retrospective of his melodies and guitar riffs from his earliest songwriting days. Jason also shares some great advice on freelancing, and we talk about some of our favorite film scores.

    Intriguing to hear about the blinkage as musical edit points in ‘The Conversation’ and Mr Schumacher’s ensuing remarks. I remember Michael Caine doing a Master Class on the TV where he made quite a thing about never blinking on film, as it ‘weakens’ the character. You seldom see sniffling or yawning in films either. But there was Cher’s insouciant-guilty whistling in 1987’s Suspect whilst she naughtily interferes with an empty courtroom. No other ‘music’ in that scene though.
