Free Scoring Technique

Learn how to "blueprint" cues and finish them in record time!

What is Free Scoring?

Free Scoring technique is a cue "blueprinting" method innovated by Film Composer Evan Evans, which unlocks your full creative potential and individuality. It evolves techniques originally utilized by Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams among others.

The processes of the Free Scoring technique can be broken down into three main areas:
  1. Spotting,
  2. Mapping the Beats and Barlines, and
  3. Design.

Using this new 21st Century method, you can already be working on finishing your cues ... before you've even started them.

Learn how you can score a 3-minute action cue in 1 hour, how you can score as many as 20 cues, in just 1 day.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the class start and finish?
It is a completely self-paced online educational program - you decide when you start and when you finish, and unlike traditional schools, you can re-watch your classes and lessons as many times as you wish.
How long do I have access to the class, it's curriculum, teachers, materials and discussion forums?
In traditional in-person classes you do not get access to the instruction beyond the first day. We are happy to inform you that at the online Film Scoring Academy you will have access to the classes, mentorship, materials, forum discussions, and any supplemental new content as it comes for a period of 1 year, and can renew access annually for 10% of the most current retail price for the program.
What if I am unhappy with the class?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase within the first 30 days, stop immediately and contact us and we will give you a refund for the portion of the class you did not view. We're sorry, but if you already viewed a section, we have no way of knowing if you watched it or not, and just like real university, once you have taken a class you cannot "untake" it. You have been delivered the education and those classes and lessons cannot be refunded. You will be refunded for whatever lessons you did not click on and view.

"Bravo. Excellent course and clearly presented. I love it. I actually came up with a similar free hand sketch system out of necessity just a few days ago!! So this material of yours not only confirms the direction I was going but fleshes our the rest of the system I needed. I am inspired!"
