  • Out Take: Composer Edwin Wendler - Music Connection Magazine
    gave Wendler a shot at scoring Unnatural The film s editor then forwarded Wendler s name which again led to a gig I Spit on Your Grave 3 Needless to say word of mouth has worked for Wendler who also worked on Little Fockers Fear Factor and X Men Days of Future Past The most obvious thing is to not give up he says after two decades of working in the industry But he also recommends praise where it is due Also seek out work you love If you love the director s work they may have a great working relationship with another composer in which case it would be weird to insert yourself but you never know Always be polite and kind and full of praise exclusively when it s honest Young composers should connect with as many filmmakers as possible Wendler adds and they should use social media to help track them down and for communication purposes I found a picture for David Weinstein s profile he says It showed an image of a computer generated character that was full of character and emotion and I responded to it and asked if he was working on anything Fortunately that very day David was looking for a composer That s how I worked on Azareus Rising Every contact is a good contact Most recent I Spit on Your Grave 3 Unnatural Tales of Halloween Web EdwinWendler com Tags Edwin Wendler I Spit on Your Grave 3 Tales of Halloween Unnatural Previous Story New Gear Review Park Amps Little Head Next Story A Very TWIZTID Christmas Party 0 Shares Jessica Pace Related articles Power Networking at Music Conferences Feature Articles Magazine Music Industry Tips March 30 2015 BMI Promotes Ray Yee More Industry News January 17 2013 Blue Releases Mo

  • Out Take: Composer Dan Romer - Music Connection Magazine
    child s experience It s far from the grandiose soaring score of Beasts of the Southern Wild and Romer emphasized the importance of composers paying attention to the story It s so story based Romer says With Beasts of the Southern Wild we kept saying make it louder make it louder Then for Digging for Fire it was make it tougher make it tougher There s nothing worse than a score that s loud and overly emotional when it doesn t need it Because the trajectories of art are complex Romer says newcomers shouldn t enter the field thinking of themselves as composers Thinking of yourself as a composer when you re young is premature he says Think of yourself as a writer or someone who makes music If you just say I m going to be a film composer then you re going to miss a lot of great opportunities Do as many different projects as you can in whatever capacity If someone says arrange horns for a funk group do it It could lead to something To find those opportunities Romer surrounded himself with talent and fostered those relationships The most important thing is to find other people who are talented Form really good relationships with people who you think are amazing People are so important Web DanRomer com Most recent Beasts of No Nation Tags Beasts of No Nation beasts of the southern wild Dan Romer Film Composer Previous Story 21 000 Submissions Kick Off Grammy Season Next Story Manson and Bates on The Pale Emperor 0 Shares Jessica Pace Related articles Out Take Composer Mark Isham Feature Articles Magazine July 28 2015 Meet the New Breed of Film TV Game Composers Feature Articles November 3 2014 A Look Inside Film Composer Brian Tyler s Film Scores

  • Industry Profile: Chideo - Music Connection Magazine
    Entertainment distributor Magnolia Pictures and Landmark Theaters Wagner was also involved with supporting the innovative KIPP Charter Schools and has created and funded a variety of programs for inner city students nationally Chideo represents the perfect sandwich of Todd s interests says Endsley Digital entertainment and philanthropy Wagner utilized his contacts in the entertainment and sports industries he owns a stake in the Dallas Mavericks to recruit initial participation which also resulted in word of mouth involvement Music artists including Linkin Park LL Cool J Don Henley Darius Rucker and Clint Back provide exclusive content to the network which includes backstage videos interviews as well as meet and greet opportunities via sweepstakes and other unique offerings Actors sports stars and television celebrities are also represented on channels within the platform Much of the content can be accessed free on the website or via the Chideo app and some online content requires a donation to the associated cause in order The recipient charities are typically the artist s own foundation or one they support Sweepstakes for fan events require a small contribution to enter The goal of these platforms is to bring the charities into the digital world and bring in a younger demographic says Endsley Currently only eight percent of charitable donations are done online The company also assures that at least 80 of the donations go directly to the charity a much higher figure than typical in the fundraising community Fans come to the site based on promotion from artist websites and social media sites and notably through a distribution partnership with Sinclair Broadcasting Group Many people aren t aware of this but Sinclair Broadcasting Group is the largest owner of television stations in the country primarily in the Midwest Endsley informs Sinclair s stations often include Chideo content on their local morning news shows as well as through other exposure on the stations Another example of this partnership is a one hour live Clint Black concert that was broadcast across the stations in prime time earlier this year The concert was the result of a Chideo initiated sweepstakes contest in which songwriters entered their own video performance While the idea was for one winner to be chosen by Black and his crew to be flown to Nashville to record with Black there was enough talent that four were chosen A plan was hatched to produce a concert with Black and the four winners which was picked up by Sinclair for the prime time airing The concert was to raise awareness and funds for Black s cause Rett Syndrome Chideo has been involved with the Grammys since 2015 with exclusive backstage footage from host LL Cool J supporting his Jump and Ball program for inner city youth We had exclusive content from the red carpet at the Grammys Endsley says And instead of asking the artists who they were wearing we asked them what they care about what causes Contact Kevin Endsley chideo com Tags Chideo video charity Previous
