Online Masterclass – A BETTER MAIN TITLE





In 2004, I did a score for a film called “Forbidden Warrior” with a 96-piece all-star orchestra, recorded at the legendary Todd-AO studio by Academy Award-winning engineer Shawn Murphy.  Who among us could possibly complain?  It was beautifully performed and recorded; it sounds like a Big Hollywood Movie.  Well, in this class, we’re going to analyze the Main Title  Main Title both compositionally, and especially orchestrationally because today I would do it very differently; much more effectively.  We’ll talk about how and why, and reveal some of the key ingredients to the classic “Hollywood sound.”  Included in the class is a copy of the original score for study.  Don’t miss this one!
