“Hello Film Music Fans,
FILM SCORE MONTHLY ONLINE is coming up on its two-year anniversary,
and we think now is a great time to offer everyone out there a chance
to see how the world’s premiere film music magazine has evolved since
moving to the web:
Presenting the FSM ONLINE Free Weekend Promotion! That’s right, we’re
opening the virtual doors of FSM ONLINE to everyone for FREE, this
coming weekend. As of Friday morning (West Coast time), you can go to
www.filmscoremonthly.com/fsmonline and click on the “Log In” link in
the upper left of the homepage. Then, just enter
“email@example.com” in the email field, and “free” in
the password field (both without the quotes). That will log you in
for free until Monday morning.
So stop on by and see what our paying subscribers have been enjoying.
Peruse every last detail of our current issue, featuring an in-depth
cover-story interview with Alexandre Desplat, a candid video sit-down
chat with film music agent Richard Kraft, an installment of our
popular Score Restore segment, featuring Lord of the Rings; a video
game feature, our usual large slate of reviews, and much more.
In a nutshell, the October issue epitomizes what FSM ONLINE offers in
any given month:
— Top Talent: Incisive stories on the top composers from veteran
industry writers like Doug Adams and Jeff Bond.
— What’s Hot: News and Reviews of the latest film music offerings.
— Popular Columns: Soundtrack Obscurities, Score Internationale and
— Film Music History & Analysis: Looking for a story on the music of
Mark Twain films? You’ll only find it here.
— Digital Downloads: Exciting audio-visual features like video
documentaries, embedded music samples, archival interviews with your
favorite composers, and the aforementioned Score Restore segment,
where we take short excerpts of important film music that were not
used in the finished film and re-edit them against the picture,
allowing you to see and hear the composers’ original visions.
And there’s even more than that. We’ve got a Back-Issue Archive of
ALL the issues of FSM ever produced, going back to the first issue
printed in 1990! The printed versions are available as pdf downloads,
and the online versions are viewable on your screen, just like the
current issue. We’ve enabled a select few of these back-issues so you
can get a taste for what it would be like to have the entire FSM
issue archive at your disposal.
We hope that you enjoy your FSM ONLINE experience as much as we enjoy
putting it all together, and that you’ll become an official
subscriber — you get all that great content we mentioned for just
$4.95 per month!
As always, if you have any questions, email
firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to respond.
Have a great weekend!
