Our friends Lauren, from Twilight Facebook, and Matt and Andrew, from Imprint/Twilight Source, attended Billboard’s Film and TV Music Festival. Here is their report:
“Some of music’s top film and television producers, supervisors and editors were out in full force for Billboard’s Film and TV Music Festival on Thursday, October 29th at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA. People from all corners of the industry were in attendance to cultivate and learn new information to apply to their careers, or even just to see what made these music supervisors so successful. Companies such as ABC/Disney showed off their impressive musical choices that have garnered them so much attention such as working with The Fray in Grey’s Anatomy and the ever popular show, Hannah Montana. However, the big buzz that surrounded this conference wasn’t because of a 16 year old girl with split personalities. That honor bestows upon this year’s hottest soundtrack and highly anticipated theatrical score for The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
The Official Twilight Facebook page and Twilight Source were on hand to experience two panels devoted to a behind the scenes look into the making and popularity of the series’ soundtrack and instrumental score. The first discussion involved Alexandra Patsavas (Chop Shop Music), Livia Tortella ( Marketing, Atlantic Records) and Paul Katz ( Music Consultant, Summit Entertainment, LLC.) These “masterminds” behind the multi-million selling soundtrack to “Twilight” discussed how exactly they put together the newest ensemble of songs for the film’s sequel, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon…”
