NOW CLOSED. Closes 21 February, 2022. APPLICATIONS OPEN FOR OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP YOUR CAREER AS A SCREEN COMPOSER.
Screenworks’ annual Screen Composing Bootcamp is designed to support the professional development of two regionally-based composers. The program is open to composers from anywhere in regional Australia. The program is delivered by Screenworks with support from APRA AMCOS and the Australian Guild of Screen Composers.
Award winning professional Screen Composer Leah Curtis (Killing Ground, Exitus Roma) and an additional mentor, to be announced, will provide one-on-one mentoring to the two selected participants. The mentors will assist with skills development, as well as provide opportunities to increase the experience and confidence of the participants in order to advance their capacity for composing music for the screen. At the completion of the program, each participant will receive $1500 to aid them in advancing their screen composing careers.
“Each year, the Screen Composing Bootcamp provides an extraordinary opportunity for two emerging regional musicians to connect with professional composers so that they are able to develop skills and find ways to build their screen composing careers while living regionally”, explains Screenworks CEO, Ken Crouch.
“As with all of our programs, we know that this program gives regional people opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to help advance their careers”.
