October 15,1997 Director`s Guild Of America Hollywood, California

Alan Silvestri begin his presentation by showing excerpts from "Forrest Gump" and "Contact". With both examples he first screens the scene without music, followed by the same scene with his score. This provides a basis for him to discuss his approach to scoring a specific scene, how he makes choices, the emotional map of a musical cue, and the need to support the character in a dramatic film.

Mr. Silvestri invites questions from the audience which concerns topics such as working with pianos and synthesizers, being clear about your choices, anticipating the final mix, and understanding directors.

Early in his career, Mr. Silvestri wrote for the TV series "CHiPs". He has since scored over 80 films, including "Cast Away" (2000), "Stuart Little" (1999), "The Parent Trap" (1998), "Volcano" (1997), "Grumpy Old Men" (1993), "Death Becomes Her" (1992), the "Back to The Future" films, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (1988), and "Romancing the Stone" (1984). In 1994 Alan Silvestri received an Oscar nomination for Original Score for "Forrest Gump".
