I’ve been using the virtual pinboard site Pinterest for more than 18 months now and it’s proven to be the easiest way to collect and share links in workshops and during online courses. Links (known on Pinterest as “pins”) are gathered together in my user-defined categories such as Best iPad Apps for Music Teachers, Books I Recommend, Remixing and Film Scoring. On Pinterest, each of these categories is referred to as a “board”.
If you’d like some more background information about Pinterest and the way I’m using it, head over to my earlier article Using Pinterest To Share Music Technology Links

Pinterest Board Spotlight
I’ll be highlighting my Pinterest boards on a regular basis and I’m going to start the ball rolling with my Film Scoring collection of links and resources.
Three of my favourite pins
It was difficult to choose just three, but here goes… You can link on the images below to visit the pin (click on the pin a second time to visit the actual link – the source). If you have a Pinterest account, you can use the Pin It button to add the link to one of your own boards.
1. Scary Mary
This is the video I show at the beginning of each film scoring workshop. A great way to demonstrate the effect of music on a scene (and a good way to showcase clever editing).
2. Downloadable Wallace and Grommit videos
The BBC made a series of Wallace and Grommit videos available for school film scoring projects. They have no music, but the dialogue has been left in. You can also download a script and a storyboard to help students with their project planning.
3. Back Of The Mic
Hilarious behind-the-scenes look at a radio show. Useful video for showing students that you may need to think outside the square when it comes to creating sound effects and foley.
