Off-Site: Cine Film Scoring Competition For Emerging Composers


Recommended Posts

A UNIQUE, INNOVATIVE COMPETITION TO SUPPORT EMERGING COMPOSERS 

 

CINE is now accepting registrations for the 2nd Annual Film Scoring Competition for Emerging Composers! Composers may register at http://www.cine.org/film-scoring-competition-entry/. Registration is $25 (US).

 

HOW IT WORKS:

Entering composers will each score the same CINE Golden Eagle Award-winning short film (approx 4 minutes) from which the existing score has been removed. Judges will select 10 semi-finalists and 5 finalists, and a panel of guest judges will select the competition winner and two runners-up. 

 

We are thrilled to announce our guest judges for this year's competition: 

Mychael Danna, Academy Award-winning composer of Life of Pi, Little Miss Sunshine and Moneyball 

Daniel Carlin, Director of the Scoring for Motion Pictures & Television Program, USC Thornton School of Music 

George S. Clinton, Chair of Film Scoring, Berklee College of Music 

 

The competition finalists will be invited to CINE’s annual awards gala in June of 2014 in Washington, DC, where the winner and runners-up will be announced. To watch the winning scores from the inaugural Film Scoring Competition, click here.
