In this paper we report on a qualitative study aiming to support online and asynchronous collaboration between stakeholders of the film scoring industry. We first describe the low-fidelity prototype we designed to facilitate the establishment of a clear scope for creative discussions. We then present evaluations conducted with two composers and a filmmaker to test the prototype's design principles. Outcomes from these evaluations stressed the need for resolving the ambiguity that occurs in remote collaboration. Feedback from participants also depicted the complex nature of the composer-filmmaker relationship and confirmed the virtues of asynchronous means of communication to support that relationship.
