We’re happy to announce that today, we are launching a month-long collaboration with our friends from Filmstro, “Music Month”. Music Month is a 3-part video series teaching you about the relationship between Music and Film. Filmstro is a brilliant piece of software that makes scoring for movies easy. We’ve used Filmstro on my rhino preservation documentary “Through the Thick” (watch here) earlier this year.
Watch the first episode below!!

Music Month Episode 1 – Seeing Music
And now without further ado, please join Seb Jaeger from Filmstro and me for the first episode of “Music Month”. We sit and analyse the fundamental building blocks of music: momentum, depth and power. Using example scenes from famous movies such as Harry Potter, Transformers, Star Wars and many more, we dissect how these building blocks work and how they interact.
Join us and enjoy!
On next week’s episode, we will put into practise what we learned today, and score footage using these three musical elements.
