FINDING “YOUR OWN VOICE”
“You have to find your own voice”. This is a phrase every emerging film composer hears more than once. As a result, a significant amount of head scratching is required just to figure out what, exactly, is meant by it and, equally perplexing, “How do I accomplish it?” Like other cliche phrases, this one rolls off the tongues of studio execs and composer agents. Just another WTF? moment in the educational life of an aspiring media composer.
Richard Bellis is an Emmy award-winning composer; author of “The Emerging Film Composer: An Introduction to the People, Problems and Psychology of the Film Music Business”; is a past president of the Society of Composers & Lyricists; served on the faculty of the University of Southern California’s Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television course and UCLA Extension’s Film Scoring Certificate program: served on the Board of Governors for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and is the director and mentor of the “ASCAP Television and Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis”. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of ASCAP and lectures internationally on film and media music.
