If you’ve ever seen a movie, you know that music is a huge component of its storytelling. (Duh??)

The “score” that a film composer creates can add emphasis, emotion, suspense and basically evoke whatever feeling they want! 

Piggybacking off of our recent TWIST episode on the same topic, Molly watches and discusses several TED Talks about what makes scores great, the music theory behind it and how it alters our viewing experience. 

We also apply some of the patterns of creating a memorable score to similar principles of Presentation Thinking.
