Creating Sound for Video: Scoring a Documentary
“Creating music for a film makes me think of how much I’ve grown thanks to SoundCloud,” says Montpellier, France-based SoundClouder Julie Cocq.
As a student and composer, Julie has been interested in collaborating with filmmakers for a long time — so she made it known on her profile.
Evan Bartlett from Illinois contacted her to see if she would be interested in scoring his documentary film, Discovering the Beating Heart.
