This LJ Community is dedicated to discussing film scores and their composers, and even some of the members' own work.



THE GOLDEN RULE

No Bootlegging or File Sharing


filmscore thrives on new releases and giving away things for free hurts that. While discussion of bootlegs is not a problem, please do not file share or post links where one can download or purchase illegitimate items or promos. Also: do not offer to share material off the board by advertising offers here.

Obviously, this can be tricky at times. If you have a question, you can e-mail either moderator before posting.

An exception to this rule is posting downsampled clips (96kps or lower, no longer than one minute) for compairing, contrasting or identifying a piece of music.
