This paper represents a Hollywood-informed approach toward film score production, with special attention given to the impact of dialogue on the recording and mixing of the music score. The author reveals his process for creating a hybrid (real and MIDI) orchestral film score that was recorded, mixed, and produced in Hong Kong for the English language feature film, New York November (2011). The film was shot in New York, directed by Austrian filmmakers Gerhard Fillei and Joachim Krenn in collaboration with film composer and fellow Austrian, Sascha Selke. Additional instruments were remotely recorded in Singapore and the final sound track was mixed at a dubbing theater in Berlin. The author acted as score producer, conductor, co-orchestrator, MIDI arranger, musician, and composer of additional music.
