At the release party for the second Ready Player One trailer (the film is premiering at South by Southwest right now, but I went to a release party for the trailer, and not even the first trailer), I learned that Ernest Cline writes to film scores. I thought that was a great idea, considering I can’t listen to music with words whenever I’m writing or editing.
One of the next assignments I got, I brainstormed a couple of films, then got what free songs I could on a Spotify playlist. Not all of them were instrumental, but I enjoyed the experiment of pairing an editing assignment to a background soundtrack. I even found a few good songs in the process.
This next week will be posts of movies I got to rewatch in the process.
