Following on from the success of previous collaborative film scoring workshops, the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, in association with Filmbase, The Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) and Screen Training Ireland will bring together the very best emerging Irish filmmakers and composers to work on an exciting collaborative project.
The focus of the project is a one day recording session in RTÉ studios in June 2017. This will involve the RTÉ Concert Orchestra performing and recording original scores for short film submissions received from emerging Irish filmmakers.
We are now seeking applications from interested composers who would like to participate in this project. Because of the limited number of places available we have set down a number of qualifying criteria for those wishing to take part.
1. Previous experience in scoring to picture (short film/advertisements etc.) desirable.
2. The ability to score for full orchestra is essential.
3. The ability to work to a tight deadline is also essential.
This initiative will provide emerging filmmakers and composers with a valuable opportunity to enhance their skills with hands-on experience in a vital aspect of film post-production. It is also a rare opportunity to have a score composed for full orchestra.
If you meet the above criteria and would like to participate in this program please email an up-to-date CV and samples of your work, outlining your film and TV scoring experience to date to keith.johnson@imro. A total of 4 composers will be selected for inclusion in the project.
CLOSING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS: Friday 10th March 2017
