Homeschool Dropouts: The Score

For anyone who is interested in learning more about composing music for films, I highly recommend checking out Ben Botkin's Blog! He has a lot of good articles and music samples.

"Homeschool Dropouts is a documentary, so most of the music I wrote for it plays under constant dialogue and keeps a very subdued and submissive role– almost exaggeratedly so, as most of the music is little more than ambient or atmospheric. Though I developed a couple different melodic motifs and musical textures that I could weave throughout the film, there was never really a place for a big, developed symphonic approach to melody or movement–most of the music would be pretty uninteresting or boring if you heard it on its own." ~Ben Botkin

You can listen to samples, see the trailer for the movie and read the rest of the article here!
