How would I compose music for Mustache Maniacs Film Co.?
We typically keep in touch with our affiliates through e-mail, so we would be handling the recorded audio electronically. The composer would be sent a file of the film that needs music (with all timing finalized), who would then compose to this file, then send the music back as an audio file.
Why do I have to sign a NDA?
Since composing is essentially the last step of any film production, you would be seeing our films essentially finished weeks or months ahead of their release. This means that you would be exposed to the entire film's plot, including any spoilers, before anyone else. By signing the NDA, you agree to not disclose this information on our official wiki or anywhere else.
What if I am sent a film file from the editor who tells me that the timing isn't final?
Ideally, this would never happen, as timing should be final before music composing should begin. However, in the event that should happen, start an open dialogue with the editor to see where the timing is final and where it needs polishing. You may have to work around some hurdles, but if you keep in touch with the film's editor, you should have the finalized film sooner rather than later.
How do I know what style to compose to?
If you are unsure what is needed of you when it comes to the direction of the music, start an open discussion with the project's director. The director should be more than happy to talk to you in order to point you in the right direction.
