How Much Does Music Contribute To A Film?

It's really easy to take film music for granted. When it's done really well, we don't notice it at all; it just enhances the film in ways that we really perceive, but don't necessarily pay attention to.

Here's a great example of how important the music of a film can be. It's a short clip from the original Star Wars (Episode 4), but minus the John Williams score after the first 15 seconds.

Considering that this was the feel good payoff of the film, notice how awkward it is without the music (kind of like real life sometimes).

So hail to all film composers and all the things you do!
