mk390 Posted June 12, 2013 Share Posted June 12, 2013 (edited) In this challenge, the movie you are scoring for is an imaginary one, perhaps a novel or short story you wish COULD be made into a film. Score a "scene" from the "movie," and try to employ a memorable melody or two (think John Williams more than Hans Zimmer ;) ). Use any instrumentation necessary, and keep the piece to about 10 mins max. Also, the judges will need a description of the scene you are scoring (ie. actions of the characters, setting, etc.) and you will be judged on: -how well you capture the essence of the scene (20) -strength of the melodic material (20) -inventive use of orchestration (10) Timeline: 3 weeks I am asking for 3-5 judges for this challenge. I will NOT be judging, since I feel like some potential contestants may find my judgements "unfair" or "biased." The prize is "bragging rights"...I guess...? And the fact that only ONE of you will be viewed as more talented than all the rest! I have posted this challenge mainly for those of you who call yourselves "film composers," but anyone can join. There has been an extreme lack of good, innovative melodic material on this site (in my humble, unimportant opinion), so I think this challenge may be a good thing. Hopefully some of you who have taken a back seat to more "prominent composers" on this site will finally have a chance to shine! Oh, and I will NOT be joining in the competition either (how unfair is that, if I were to be in my own challenge!). So good luck to all!
