SAGindie and Helix Collective set out on a matchmaking adventure workshop to pair indie filmmakers with the composer that could bring their ideas to life in sound.
Starting with a workshop led by Phil Popham of Helix Collective on how to choose the right composer for your project, the Last Chance Moms team worked through a set of reels to find the right match. They connected with composer Logan Stahley and what happened next?
This virtual workshop will explore the entire process and what everyone on the team learned along the way. We’ll also see clips from the film illustrating their musical choices and take questions on the process.
