Peter Golub, film composer and director of Sundance Institute Film Music Program, gives an insider’s look at the challenges of composing music for film, and shares some excerpts from films he has composed – including, Denzel Washington’s "The Great Debaters" and Courtney Hunt’s "Frozen River," winner of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize. Sundance Institute invites you to step inside the world of independent filmmaking each month with the new Sundance Institute Film Series.
