On September 23, BMI again proudly partnered with the Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) to sponsor a panel discussion, featuring filmmaker Diana Whitten, BMI composer T. Griffin and music supervisors Joe Rudge and Barry Cole, about the exciting process and opportunities of transitioning from creating music for film to TV and beyond. Moderated by BMI’s Vice President of Writer-Publisher Relations, Doreen Ringer-Ross, the panel provided a candid look at the demands, constraints and differences in freedom of working episodically, scoring feature films and providing compelling music for short-duration pieces.
Founded in 1979, IFP is the largest and oldest not-for-profit organization dedicated to independent film. The Project supports the art of storytelling by connecting artists with essential resources at all stages of development and distribution of their works. Currently representing a growing network of 10,000 storytellers around the world, IFP plays a key role in developing 350 new feature and documentary works each year.
