SmartSound Software to Host Soundtrack Creation WorkshopWorkshop to teach independent and documentary filmmakers how to create soundtracks
SmartSound Software and the International Documentary Association announced that it will host a workshop on soundtrack creation December 7 at the Culver Studios Ince Theater, 9336 W. Washington Blvd. in Culver City, California.
The workshop will give independent and documentary filmmakers the opportunity to learn how to create professional quality soundtracks for projects of any budget using SmartSound soundtrack creation software. Filmmaker Rick McKay, an award-winning producer, director and writer, will share the secrets he used to score his award-winning documentary "Broadway: The Golden Age," including how he used SmartSound technology and music to score almost a third of his movie for about $500. A screening of the movie and an open Q&A session with McKay will follow the workshop. McKay was a segment producer for five years on WNET-TV New York's "City Arts," the most honored locally-produced show in TV history. McKay also produced the first story commissioned for the national series "Egg: The Arts Show," as well as helping to create the opening segment of the previous two Tony Awards
Creating a professional-quality soundtrack is a growing concern for independent and documentary filmmakers and editors. Frequent time and budget constraints make it very difficult to score projects to a level that meets
their standards. This event will show filmmakers new ways to effectively score their scenes.
The workshop is priced at $10. Seats must be reserved and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets can be ordered at www.smartsound.com/workshop or by calling (818) 920-9122.
