Daily Film scoring bits

Welcome to the Daily Film Scoring Bits. On this page I post on a more or less daily basis little tips, tricks and advices about film scoring in general but also more specific topics like orchestration, composition, working relationships, business advices etc.

Use the search bar on the right to find specific topics or click on the tags to filter posts by specific topics.

Please don’t hesitate to comment on the bits, a lively discussion with different points of view is desired 🙂
