Roger Neill discusses remote screen scoring with Variety

Roger Neill (BM ‘86), an alum of USC Thornton’s Composition program, was recently interviewed for Variety’s Songs for Screens column about his approach to scoring film and television projects remotely. In the interview, Neill discusses how he drew from his network of session musicians to create a virtual orchestra for the score of the HBO Max series “Unpregnant.”

“I’ve talked to a lot of my colleagues and we’re all learning how to do a lot of this stuff on our own, and a lot of what we’re doing now could become permanent in our industry,” said Neill. “It’s just what we have to do to get this stuff done.”
