Charlotte, NC (March 28, 2012)—Composer Fred Story, founder of Concentrix Music and Sound Design, Inc., has scored American Masters: Margaret Mitchell: American Rebel, premiering on PBS on April 2.
Story, a film, television and multi-media music composer, recently won his Fifth Regional Emmy Award for his musical work on the two-hour documentary for North Carolina Public Television entitled North Carolina’s World War II Experience.
On behalf of his client Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB Media) of Atlanta, Story’s assignment was to create an original, compelling musical score to accompany a documentary on the life of legendary writer Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With The Wind.
Said Story, “As a film composer, our challenge is not only to reflect, but [also] to enhance, the emotional underpinnings of the story we are aurally illustrating. What I try to bring to the table on every project in which I am involved is an intense focus on the needs of the story, as articulated by the director, and, of course, the story itself. This project was especially satisfying, in that executive producer Pam Roberts had such an open mind to ideas that may have differed from her initial musical direction.”
Story adds, “It was my first time working with GPB, and I came away completely impressed with the organization—so much so, in fact, that I’ve already scored a second project for the network and am currently working on a third.”
