I've been reading a lot of the posts on some people who have worked with top level guys in the industry, as either a tech or an assistant etc. I'm curious about workflow at that level as I continue to build my own composing career. The new normal seems to be the composer writes a suite (or series of suites) independent from picture which the music editor then takes and cuts against the film. Does the composer often ALSO score to picture? Or do they sometimes just take parts of the suite and flesh that out? When I watch some JXL tutorial videos, I see him with actual cue files, but does he pull some of this material from his suite? What's the general workflow for the big blockbuster features? How is it then handed off to assistants? I'd love to hear peoples experiences with this.
