The course is designed for people who already use music in their own productions (feature films of various lengths, documentaries, animations) or want to learn how to do it, as well as for those who are involved in film production.

The workshop is also a very interesting proposition for lovers of music in film, who want to gather more knowledge about its history, methods of creation and ways of using it. The course includes theoretical and practical classes and an extensive list of bibliographies and literature. Among the most important topics will be: the function and roles of film music, cooperation with composers, music consultation, a useful glossary of key musical terms, music in film promotion.

Note: possible course for a smaller group, tailored individually to the needs of participants in an appropriately adapted duration (e.g., working on a selected issue or project).

Using Polish and foreign examples, we will discuss the path of music in film – from selection through its creation to recording. We will tell how to cope with a very small budget, where to look for music and how to use it effectively in a film. It will also be about establishing contacts between the music and film communities,” says Magda Miśka-Jackowska.
