Description

2018 Filmmaker Forum

Go behind the scenes with festival artists and special guests at these two free events, open to anyone interested in delving deeper into the craft of dance filmmaking.

Part 1: Music Rights Workshop

Friday, October 12, 2018 | 10:30 am – 11:30 am

The Music Rights Workshop provides an inside look at the complex world of music rights for film and video and includes guidance on how to navigate these tricky waters. Presented by Brooke Wentz of The Rights Workshop, an SF-based music supervision, licensing, and creative clearance company helping producers make the most of their music budgets.

Brooke Wentz

Brooke Wentz is a music supervisor and rights executive who created The Rights Workshop after running ESPN’s music department. Prior she was a rights consultant to TechTV, Arista Records manager of A&R Administration and a former radio host. She produced numerous critically acclaimed recordings and won a Billboard Award. A graduate of Barnard College and Columbia Business School, Brooke brings over 25 years music business experience to the Bay Area.


Part 2: What’s The Score?

Friday, October 12, 2018 | 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

As a follow-up to last year’s forum topic, “Directing The Eye,” we turn our senses to the ears and listen to the way choices in music and sound design affect every aspect of filmmaking. Invited festival filmmakers will discuss their creative processes, illustrated by clips from their work, followed by an open audience discussion.


Carl Sandrol, Composer

Carl Sondrol is a composer and music producer in Los Angeles. He’s scored over 100 projects including short films, internet videos, commercials, games, and feature films. Two of them won Webby awards, and one song was performed in Carnegie Hall. He’s worked with directors like Jason Bateman, Dan Beers, and Celia Rowlson-Hall, as well as brands like CBS, Nickelodeon, and Samsung. In 2017, he released the “Batika Hawk” EP + music video series and wrote a bio in the third person.

Sandy Silva, Choreographer

Sandy Silva was among the first to combine body percussion techniques and contemporary movement with percussive dance. Over the past three decades, Sandy has developed a personal vocabulary of movement and sound based on the percussive dance practices of Hungary, Appalachia, Cape Breton and Andalusia, and the idioms of circus, contemporary dance, and theatre. Silva’s choreography weaves a dialogue between these gestural and rhythmic vocabularies, blending the local and the post-modern in an organic, bodily response to her world.
