It's a given that music is an invaluable tool for any film-maker. It drives emotion. It alters perception. It can give a scene depth and meaning. But I think music can aid the screenwriter as well. I play music all the time when I’m writing. Not because I love it, although I do. Not in some foolhardy attempt to score the film in advance of production. I play music because I want to be in a heightened emotional state when I write. Music helps me to ‘feel’ something about the subject I’m writing about.”Nick Gill, Executive Creative Director, Bartle Bogle Hegarty
Film and television work can really come to life and reach their true potential through music. Often the marriage of score and tracks can help elevate a narrative to another level. The role of music supervisor is instrumental, as they find and then situate those pieces of music in ways that can deepen a story and invite viewers in. When it works, it can be a beautiful thing.”Ed Rubin, Managing Director, Scott Free Films
The role fulfilled by the Music Supervisor on our films is complex, vital and central to the film making process. We rely on the Music Supervisors we work with to balance the creative aspirations of the film makers with the budgetary limitations of the project and they do so armed with an impressive array of skills – an encyclopaedic knowledge of commercially available music and the music business, finely honed negotiation techniques and creative flair.”Fiona McGuire, Head of Physical Production at Pathé
