Dear Jeff:

Films are great, but a film score or musical background that suits the film is just as important. If an artist wanted to score say an action film like "The Lone Ranger", s/he would need an action packed, heart & pulse pounding score. If its a period piece like "The Remains Of The Day", you'd want the musician to make it a more slow & relaxed pace of background music, say a lot of classical, jazz, & lighter tone & tempo overall. To be a true artisan & accomplished student musician of music who wants to get into the film business, you have to have the raw talent to write the music (& sometimes the lyrics too) to ensure they properly fit the film you are writing/composing for.

Danny Elfman,
