This is the initial online publication of the book. Prior to this, the manuscript file was extensively circulated to educators and members of the profession for comment and correction. Although it has been thoroughly vetted for accuracy of content, as well as proofed repeatedly by the author, the manuscript has not been professionally copy edited, so some typos, spelling and formatting errors may remain. This should be considered a "beta version" of SCORING THE SCREEN. Please let us know via the CONTACT page if you come across mistakes. The downloadable file available here for purchase opens to a folder containing the full manuscript and all notation files (.musx) for reductions featured in the book, as well as index (.xlsx) to all reductions. The Finale .musx files have also been exported as music .xml files which can, in theory, be imported into Sibelius more or less intact. There are some known incompatibilities with respect to transposing instruments (esp. octave + transpositions), so it's always best to compare to the printed scores in the manuscript. However, if adjustments are made and the right instruments are assigned to respective staves, you should be able to "hear" the parts.
