In conjunction with The Storyteller Song Search here on 20 Questions Film, we got together with film composer, Jongnic Bontemps (you can call him JB), for a chat about the important role music plays in film and how you can use film music – whether it’s a score or original songs – to tell stories and trigger emotion.
Jongnic is a Los Angeles-based composer who has worked on anything from feature films to TV episodes to trailers to commercials to short form webseries. And no matter the medium, he approaches the project with the same level of respect, knowing that the music will have a profound impact on the viewer’s connection to the visuals.
We have many more videos with Jongnic on the way, so be sure to check back often. Or even better, subscribe to our newsletter and/or YouTube channel and we’ll let you know when the next one is online.
