    What are music libraries and how do they work? Do they compete with composers or support them? Guerrilla Film Scoring has the answers from Hollywood’s top composers for film, television, and video games. Part 9 of a 9-part, 90-minute video course More info: www.guerrillafilmscoring.com/videos/ The existence and workings of production music libraries are largely overlooked in formal music education programs and in almost all literature about music and film scoring. If they are mentioned at all, it is sure to be more of a footnote than a focus. Music libraries possess vast amounts of music, generate huge sums of money from license fees and royalties, and control a sizable share of the market. However, understanding of them does not extend very far beyond industry insiders. To most educators and to the general public they are unknown and essentially invisible.

      How do composers find work? What can you do to stay productive and gainfully employed in today’s market? Guerrilla Film Scoring has the answers from Hollywood’s top composers for film, television, and video games. Part 7 of a 9-part, 90-minute video course More info: www.guerrillafilmscoring.com/videos/ The ultimate question “How do I find work?” is one that can baffle even the most successful artists. Any industry relating to the arts is whimsical. Styles change, tastes change, the personalities of the creators and consumers change, and the arts themselves change. It can be very difficult to pinpoint a need and position yourself to fill that need. Even if you’re able to do that, it can still be difficult to monetize what you have done. The methods of finding work are constantly changing, and the type of music that sells is changing even faster. No matter how long your music career lasts, the difficulty of finding work will persist throughout for all but a lucky few.

        What is the best way to get a music education? Is it to study at a university, to get an apprenticeship, or to be self-taught? Guerrilla Film Scoring has the answers from Hollywood’s top composers for film, television, and video games. Part 2 of a 9-part, 90-minute video course More info: www.guerrillafilmscoring.com/videos/ Preparation must come in two different forms in the music industry, knowledge and experience. Knowing how to do something and having experience actually doing that same thing are completely different. Knowledge without experience isn’t very useful because music is a practical applied art form. Experience without knowledge isn’t very useful because the experience can easily become misdirected or unproductive. The best way to put yourself on a sure path in the music industry is to pursue a combination of both.

          How do great composers quickly make great sounding demos of their writing? How could you sell yourself and your ideas better with your demos? Guerrilla Film Scoring has the answers from Hollywood’s top composers for film, television, and video games. Part 6 of a 9-part, 90-minute video course More info: www.guerrillafilmscoring.com/videos/ Nobody wants surprises in the production process, and nobody needs to tolerate them any more either. We live in a high fidelity world where great production value is easily available. That raises the bar and turns the possibility into an obligation. The days of mediocre MIDI mockups are long gone. It requires exactly the same effort to play an idea on a dated virtual instrument as it does to use a state of the art one, so there can be no excuses. There is very little place left in the scoring industry for things that sound like sketches.

            How do you build up your career as a composer? How do you create momentum so that your career grows continuously? Guerrilla Film Scoring has the answers from Hollywood’s top composers for film, television, and video games. Part 8 of a 9-part, 90-minute video course More info: www.guerrillafilmscoring.com/videos/ The qualities that sustain a composer’s career are not related to the art of music. Your music needs to be brilliant and original, but that alone is not enough, just like a great steak alone doesn’t keep a restaurant in business. A product by itself does not build or sustain a business, and that is very often misunderstood by artists in all mediums. Musicians are usually focused on the creative process and on making an end product that is high quality and has integrity. They hope that their art will speak for itself and draw attention to them over time, but that is usually a false hope. There is too much music in the world and too much media being consumed for that hope to be realized, except in a handful of cases. Making a high quality product and dropping it into film festivals or iTunes is like putting a message in a bottle and throwing it out to sea. Only one in a million will have any result. Your music needs to be great, but other things build and sustain your business.
