Composers FAQ - Initiative Participation

What is the Initiative's time commitment?

If selected to participate in the Initiative, it will require substantial time commitments on a "first priority" basis.  Participants will work on an independent basis, but be required to attend meetings (both telephonic and in person) as well as participate in spotting, scoring, mixing and/or editing sessions as requested through completion of all deliverables.  The duration of the Initiative will be dictated by the particular needs of the participating production entity and the project to which the candidate is assigned.
