This lecture will examine the production of game scores, and suggest strategies for maximizing the production budget. The speaker aims to instill strategic thinking and result oriented approaches by applying the formula: identify, prioritize, strategize. First, identify the needs of your game score. Second, prioritize the score assets. Third, strategize by asking the right questions and knowing your options. The composer's creative fee will be separated from the production cost. We will focus solely on production budgets at three levels: small production budgets (up to $10k), medium production budgets ($10k to $60k), and big production budgets (over $60k). Within each level of budgets we will apply the identify, prioritize, strategize motto, and look at case studies.
