Knowing the Score: Music in Film
Thursdays, Oct. 20-Nov. 17, 7-10 pm (no class 11/3)

Music has historically served many purposes in film: to cover projector
noise, to help light and shadow compete against live vaudeville and
burlesque shows, and to elevate a novelty technology above the penny arcade.
While music in film still operates in many similar ways--covering poor
production sound, smoothing rough transitions, ameliorating poor acting,
reinforcing cinematic structure--its power lies in its ability to impart
emotional or subplot information, and create illusions of time and place.
Learn about the rich history and varied approaches of music in film. Watch
and analyze clips in class.

Jack Curtis Dubowsky has scored three independent features, numerous shorts,
and has composed music for television and advertising. He has worked in
music, film, and postproduction in Los Angeles, New York City, and San
Francisco, and has screen credit on two Pixar features. He has received
grants from Meet the Composer and the Zellerbach Family Fund.

$80/Filmmaker-level members; $125/others.
