BT-10. SCORE: A Film Music Documentary

USA, Feature Documentary, 2016, 94 min

Matt Schrader makes his point about the power of film music with brilliant simplicity. The screen is black, then the Rocky theme begins and suddenly our brains are filled with images—Rocky running up the Courthouse stairs…Maynard Ferguson’s screaming trumpet in his hit record—and we are back decades in just seconds. What makes a film score unforgettable? We’ll see how composers developed some of the most iconic scores in history, and we’ll learn the secrets of how modern composers implant a song to a worldwide audience.
