We have reviewed all 36 submissions to the Film Score Project and are pleased to announce the score selected for a professional recording by an ensemble in New York City.
The winning score for The Juggler was composed by
Tim Fehling of Madison, Wisconsin.
In his comments on Tim’s score, guest judge Jeff Peters says:
This piece has one of the more unique voices of the finalists. The complexity of the rhythmic alignments makes for an interesting and fun tone that matches the art of juggling quite well. It sounds like what is going on inside of a juggler's head.
As a whole, the connection between the music and film is very strong and precisely coordinated. Most of all, the piece is exactly what the tempo description says - “Bouncy and Fun”.
We will be sending the panelists comments to all of the composers who submitted a score. These comments will be sent directly to the composers through their Musical Exchange message box.
CLOSED TO SUBMISSIONS
Thank you all for your submissions to The Film Score Project. We received 35 submissions to the project, all of them now posted in the comments below. We encourage you to watch other people's submissions and to say what you like about each of the scores. This will be a great way to learn about what is successful about your work.
We will be reviewing the submissions over the next couple of weeks and plan on announcing the selected score by May 1, 2013. At the same time, we will send each of the composers a sheet with comments from our judges about their score.
But, your work is not completely done! Now that you have gone through this process, we would like to hear from you about what this experience has meant to you. There are two ways to keep involved:
Student filmmaker Ali Gorfinkel from Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City has created a short documentary film for her class project, and it’s almost finished. She just needs the film score.
We are taking film score submissions from the composers in the Musical Exchange Composing Group, and we will select one score to record with professional musicians in a recording studio in New York City. Start your score by selecting up to four of the following instruments. (Note: only those scores with no more than four instruments from this list will be eligible for the recording session prize):
Piano | Violin | Cello | Viola | Double Bass
Clarinet | Flute | Bassoon | Oboe | French Horn | Alto Saxophone
Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of professional composers, and feedback will be provided to all applicants.
Johnny, you have to be between the ages of 13-25 to participate. Hope you will submit something.
one more thing,VST generated audio can be used or only midi?
VST audio would be fine, as long as you have a score to accompany it. The exciting thing about this project is the opportunity to have your score recorded by professional musicians, so they need to have some music to read! Check back with the instrumentation requirements above to make sure your piece will be eligible for the recording.
Oh, excellent! we will be thrilled to hear your music Younes!
I cannot play the video file. Can you upload it again? Is anyone there has the same problem?
Yusuf, I have just tried downloading the file again and had no problem with it. Have you right-clicked on the link and selected the option to "Save Linked File"? This is the best way to save the file to your computer. Then, once you click on the file, it should open in a video program like Windows Media Player (if you are on a PC) or Quicktime (if you are on a Mac). If you are still have problems with this, maybe you can let me know some more details, so I can be clearer about the problem. Thanks!
guess we'll see how this goes. I'm in :)
So excited that there has been such a tremendous response to this project. As we approach a month to go before the submission deadline (April 1), we posted a blog with some great tips for film composers. Hope you will check it out and add some more of your own tips to the post.
