Art That Scares You
TITLE: Scoring & Sound Design for Audio Art or Short Film
MEDIA: Music Composition & Audio Production
This item is a service pledge.
What do you get?
Thematic and underscore composition, for one short film or one audio art piece (short story, poem, or "radio" drama). In addition, Sound Design (Atmos, Foley, Special FX), to support storytelling or poetics as required in that piece.
If you already have an audio recording, work will be tailored to fit your existing audio. If you would like to record an audio arts piece from scratch, the vocal recording of story, poem or drama voice over and dialogue is included in the package. (If you are located afar, we will work within those limitations - you can expect no lesser quality than the Writing Show's Halloween Special). The finished piece must be no longer than ten minutes in length (strict). Film-makers must have a film at a rough edit stage suitable for spotting.
What don't you get?
You don't get -- A full Hollywood-style orchestral score, live kit drums, multi-million dollar effects, or a rush job. Be realistic, this is a "no budget job" delivered by a developing artist and student.
You don't get -- A rock opera. The focus is underscoring and FX to support a text-based audio work.
You don't get -- exclusive copyright to the music. Rights revert to the composer, just like an authors rights after anthology publication - but you will have the right to broadcast and display the integrated piece (including online), submit it to markets, and include it in your funding packages to arts councils. (The copyright of your words and performance remain your own.)
You don't get -- Vocal talent. This item does not include a theatre company in a box. Ideally, the audio arts piece should be an author reading, or the vocal talent must be sourced by the writer or director.
You don't get -- ADR for film - filmmakers will need to complete their own ADR with a technician devoted to that craft, using their own actors.
You don't get -- 5.1 mix. The studio is not yet set up for serious 5.1.
Who would this suit?
Student or underground filmmakers, or writers looking to expand their credits to include podcasting (think Broken Sea Audio), web-streaming for promotion (think vibing up your MySpace page with your own story), or submission to audio arts literary markets (think Going Down Swinging).
Who is going to do this sound music thingywhatsit?
Talie Helene has a Certificate IV in Music Industry Technical Production, and is a current student in the Diploma of Music Industry Technical Production at RMIT, where she's learning various aspects of audio for media. She has studied filmscoring for two years with composer Brett Rosenberg (best known for scoring the film Half Light, starring Demi Moore), and has been training her ear for orchestration playing double bass with Maroondah Symphony and Saba Persian Orchestra. She is also trudging through a Diploma of Arts in Professional Writing and Editing, and is aware of text-based artistic considerations from a writers perspective. She will listen to what you want to achieve. You can hear some of Talie's music at her MySpace, and on the Black Box e-anthology (a fundraiser for the AHWA). She operates a home studio with Protools, Logic Studio, and Sibelius5, which is where this project would be developed.
