FILM SCORE COMPETITION

MUSIC IS ONE OF THE BEST STORYTELLERS OF ALL TIME.  MAKE US FEEL SOMETHING!

SCORE FOR THE SCREEN

A film score or film music is an original piece of music written specifically to accompany a film.  The score forms part of the film’s soundtrack, which also usually includes pre-existing music, dialogue, and sound effects, and compromises a number of orchestral, instrumental, or choral pieces called cues, which are timed to begin and end at a specific point during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative of the emotional impact of the scene in question. (cite: Wikipedia).

Holy smokes!  That was a mouth full.  What we’re looking for at NewArtist is for our composers to take a stab at four (4) minutes of footage (right), and deliver the best film score possible for their shot at our Showcase, NewArtist title and sponsor prizes.

DIRECTION:  We understand a Director may give the composer a specific feel for a given scene to be scored in a film.  Is the music true to what we are looking at, or can it juxtapose the action, for example.  The only thing we will be providing here is the above scene.  Our composers are given complete creative latitude to score it as they feel, and our Jury will qualify the entry as it relates to how it evokes feeling in the overall scene.  Questions?  Contact us.
