Documentary editing - soundtrack and storytelling. Sound and Music are very important components and narrative tools of any story.
This workshop will be about a celebration of that very important collaboration:
Ricardo will be sharing the ins and outs of how he got to craft and create some of his most beloved sequences using the soundtrack and music as the definitive creative tools that made that particular sequence a unique jewel in the totality of the film. He will look at the relationships between an Editor and a Composer, how to score a story with temp music, and learn about the role that Editors play in the crafting of the overall soundtrack. Ricardo will be joined by composer Ken Myhr for part of the day.
