In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Paul Haslinger, an artist and film composer, talks about conducting. He explains his thoughts on the place of a producer and music director. From a political perspective, they should be where the control of the process is – in the studio. Haslinger also discusses how conducting is a special talent. There is a difference between knowing how the music should sound and knowing how to motivate the orchestra. The significance of click tracks is covered as well. The music must be frame accurate. Also in this segment, Haslinger explains the role of contractors. Contractors hire musicians. This is a critical task since even one bad apple in an orchestra could throw off the music.
