It’s all about the sound and emotion of each scene. With Brian, my team and I are always on from the beginning of the project and starting the music ideation process at the same time as storyboard development. We meet early on a go through the script and boards, scene by scene and beat by beat. He talks me through the ideas, the story, the emotion, the camera approach, and we ideate on the myriad possible music directions and genre possibilities in that moment, and break down the core elements of feeling and energy that the music is responsible for in each scene. From there the studio explodes into writing and recording 100s of cues that we will piece together in the edit.
