POST BREAK- Music Edit: Make Em' Laugh, Make Em' Cry, Scare the Hell Out of Em'

What is Music Editing? What are the differences between features/docs and scripted TV? How the scale of the gig, budget, time can determine the job? A step by step process from getting hired, to spotting sessions, temp score vs composers or source music, recording music, creating sessions and stems for mixes through final delivery. We'll address what needs to change to help break into the industry.
