This audiovisual essay draws on primary research into the production process to examine choices and constraints around licensed music in the context of the The Cry of the Owl (Thraves, 2009). In a way that conventional written scholarship would struggle to do, the form of the essay, with its interruptions and repetitions, and the alternative versions it presents, is designed to evoke something of the experience of the filmmakers, provide insight into the ways in which meaningful decisions came to be made, and to give the listener an experience of how things might have played out differently.
