SOCAN will present a free screen composing panel discussion, “Music in the Movies,” from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. ET on March 12, 2022, during the 22nd annual Kingston Canadian Film Festival, in Kingston, ON. Register here.

The workshop will include Deanna Choi, who composes original music for film and TV, designs sonic environments for live performance, and recently scored the documentary Last of the Right Whales; film, TV, and videogame music composer Robbie Teehan, known for his nuanced and sophisticated scores to award-winning indie dramas and documentaries, who recently he scored the Canadian indie drama Scarborough; and music producer and soundtrack composer Gagan Singh, also a SOCAN Creative Executive, Film/TV and Visual Media.

These three experienced professional screen composers will lead a conversation about their creative process and the art of scoring music for film, in a live-streamed event that will allow attendees the opportunity to ask questions through the online chat function. The panel is designed to help those looking to get started in film scoring by providing an overview of the creative process.
