SCORE OPTION 1 · THE VIDEO

ScoreLive ChaseScene.png

To make this a real world working experience and to give you the best possible opportunity to show our LA jury just what you can write for a big orchestra, we have partnered with a multi award winning studio, offering a fantastic opportunity to score an amazing clip.

 

Kicking off, the fantastic chase scene from the Academy Award winning animation,

Wallace and Gromit, A Close Shave from Aardman Studios.

 

So if you are in to brilliant stop motion animation, action, comedy, and above all, the challenge of scoring to picture, then this is a great option for you.

 

SCORE OPTION 2 · THE MAIN TITLE

Your second option is a compositional challenge to write a great dramatic memorable 2 minute Main Title.

 

A singable melody that shows off all your compositional skills, using the full orchestra, and that takes full advantage of that big sound canvas to create that great melody.

 

Any genre, any style, that's up to you, just make it great! If you have never composed to picture then this is a great option for you.

Christopher Young for
