Director, composer talk about music in film

Director Kaspar Astrup Schroder and composer Silas Hite share a joke with the audience.

Director Kaspar Astrup Schroder and composer Silas Hite shared their experiences Friday morning about piecing music into the lighthearted film “The Invention of Dr. Nakamats.”

On top of the discussion, the two directors played segments of the soundtrack and clips from the movie.

Here are highlights from the session: (Some questions and answered are paraphrased.)

Q: How did you visualize pictures and select songs to complement them?

Schroder: “I think music should not comment too much on what we see, but feel the way we feel.”

Q: How do you remain unbiased when you combine music with a documentary about someone?

Hite: “Basically I used my instincts, and let the director decide.”

Q: What software did you use for the film?

A: Logic, Final Cut Pro and BlueTools.
