Fender Presents “Where Music Meets Film”—An Insider’s Look at How Music and the Film Industry Work Together, Aug. 12
Music and motion pictures have gone hand in hand ever since moving images first flickered onscreen well more than a century ago. Going to the movies and hearing a great song or a great piece of music on the silver screen or on a silvery DVD is the result of a lengthy and detailed process, and Fender and the Grammy Museum invite you to an especially fascinating look at how musicians work with and within the film industry.
“Where Music Meets Film”—An Insider’s Look at How Music and the Film Industry Work Together will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at the Grammy Museum in Los Angles. The program shows how independent filmmakers work directly with musicians on developing soundtracks and discusses the integral role music plays in film. Featured guest speakers include:
- Dave Phillips, CEO of Corner of the Sky Entertainment and creator of “Where Music Meets Film,” an annual televised live event at the Sundance Film Festival that showcases established and up-and-coming musicians to independent filmmakers and Hollywood tastemakers.
- Tyler Hilton, actor and Reprise recording artist. Hilton played Elvis Presley in 2005’s Walk the Line, played Chris Keller in TV’s One Tree Hill and co-starred in 2008′s Charlie Bartlett. Hilton hosted and performed at the 2008 and 2009 Where Music Meets Film events at the Sundance Film Festival, and his new album will be released in early 2010.
- Matt Messina, composer for several notable films, including Thank You For Smoking and Academy Award winner Juno.
- Del Breckenfeld, author and entertainment marketing director for Fender Musical Instruments Corp.
Doors open at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public; reservations are required and may be made by contacting the Grammy Museum at 213.765.6800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
