ASCAP and Berklee College of Music cordially invite you to attend a seminar and networking event at AFI. Emmy award-winning ASCAP composer and Berklee Alum Joel Goodman will be making a presentation to a group of AFI filmmakers and Berklee composers. "Film Music Demystified" offers a uniquely practical guide to film scoring. Participants will be guided through the entire process - from the first phone call to the final delivery - using emotionally driven, plain-English examples. Direct, logical and comprehensive with focus on both creative and business considerations, learn how to create the best score for your film.

Immediately following the presentation, there will be a reception where filmmakers and composers can network.
