An interview with Chandra CogburnEvery great film, commercial, video game needs a memorable score
Every great film, commercial, video game has a memorable score. Original music that fits right into the project. In the world of ?royalty free music some may think original music scores are a thing of the past. Every non linear editing suite comes with extremely solid composing applications. Apples Final Cut Studio has Soundtrack Pro. The Adobe Production Studio has Soundbooth. Any of these provide simple click and drag type of musical works.
But call me old school. I just love an original score. Sure most independent filmmakers thinks this is only for the ?big budget films. Not true at all. There are some tremendously talented folks out there looking for opportunities to collaborate with a filmmaker on their project. The trick is to find a reliable and talented one.
As I prepared to make my ?werewolf film last year I knew I wanted a certain eerie score to accompany it. I put out an ad on sites like craigslist.org, mandy.com and a few others. I was inundated with emails. I sifted through them and found a gem, Chandra Cogburn.
Chandras score for my film, Fiesta Grand, really made it come alive. I wanted to have her on the show to share here experience in the music score area of the biz. Enjoy!
