The Back room
The Back Room will kick off its first virtual meeting between film students at the University of Georgia's Grady College of Entertainment and Media Studies and students in the Masters of Composition program chaired by Amit Weiner at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.
This introductory meeting is the first of two connecting the students with each other, and we're delighted that each will also include a master class by our special guests from the film and film music industry, followed by Q & A with the students.
On November 4, producer Mitchell Cannold (whose credits include Dirty Dancing; Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey; Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did For Love) will give an online lecture to the group on the importance of music in film, from the point of view of the producer.
On November 11, we'll switch that perspective with our special guest Jeff Beal, 5-time Emmy Award winning composer (whose credits include House of Cards, Blackfish, HBO's Monk and many more), who will talk about music in film and other visual media from the point of view of the composer.
On November 18, director and producer Emilio Schenker, will give an online lecture to the group on the importance of music in film, from the point of view of both a director and a producer.
Although these are master classes for the film and music students at Grady College and The Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, we welcome a limited audience.
