Last year I discovered a fantastic Australian competition in which people are asked to score a short movie for Aussie film-festival ‘Tropfest.’
It was my first time trying anything of this nature and needless to say I didn’t come close to winning. At the same time I enjoyed the challenge of making music to pictures and having a deadline, and it gave me a project for the time that I was moving house and re-setting up my primitive studio.
I think I did a ‘good’ job, nothing spectacular but I’ve posted it here for you to have a listen.
Unfortunately, you can’t see the visuals for legal reasons however check out the 3 finalists here
Most certainly the winner Ben Allen has a great career in production ahead and I thought his score was excellent and a deserving champion.
Now a year on the comp is on again, and I’ve just moved – again – and set-up my studio – again. Got a month to have a crack at a new film – let’s see what I can conjure.
