Yeah, my questions reflect the content of the meeting, which was disappointing, to say the least. And in a world where the sands are shifting oh-so-often, to go expecting to hear some substantive discussion about rates, relationships; etc,…"

Scott W. Hallgren replied to Geoff Mann's discussion Points on a contract for indie film score
"1. If you have a Word doc, amend the dates. And don't assume everyone's working with locked picture - stipulate it. That rule is continually being violated.

2. I think they're referring to the audio (dialogue, SFX, foley; etc.), NOT your scores.…"

  • Hi Scott...
    Very nice work from your side. i listen Lost in scene 10. You´ve got the right mood.
  • So I listened to your newest piece, and I can say that although I didn't enjoy it at first, I really got into the rhythm and melodic phrasing =)
  • Thanks Carlos! A friend of mine liked it so much, he cut it on his album.... I am glad to reach a place where other people are recording my music!

    The milonga has taken a while for me to get back to it, but I have a theme, so now I need to plot the form and accompaniment; hopefully I can devote more time to it since the kids are back in school

    Gracias, mi amigo!

  • Hi Scott, loved Film Noir! Reminded me films from the 50s. You´ve got the right mood. How is your milonga going on?

    Best

  • wow - that Spirits of the Dead improv is stunning - wonderful! I love how it breaks into a groove after starting out so eerily, but it doesn't feel like a jarring move. Great stuff! The 'Sith'd' film was a great laugh, too!

    Cheers,

    Adrian
  • Hey Scott!

    Thanks a lot for checking that out and your comments! Frankly, I was shocked that it sounded so big. I got lambasted the next day for all those octave doublings, but it came out well nonetheless.

    I just saw you post regarding the survey you did - that's amazing! Thanks so much for sharing that. I'll be by later and check out your tunage.

    Cheers!

  • Oh Scott, thank you very much! Let me know if you´re coming by in the future. I´ll take you on a tour to Montevideo. Will be great to meet a virtual friend face to face!
  • Hi Scott, thanks for the add. I wil be listening to your music soon. Right now I´m busy composing for a film. Hope we can talk in the near future. Best

    Carlos
  • Man - thank you! And I'm of course, a fan of your work with Derek......!
