Film Music Workshop

Ever thought about how you start a career writing film or video game music? 

Third year pupils enjoyed an afternoon learning about composing in the film and video game industry this week in our remote learning environment.

With our guest composer Jono Buchanan revealing all the tricks of the trade and exploring the ways composers write for film. With a great imagination as your best tool, we discovered what spotting sessions are, how you should never use lyrics and a voice over at the same time, and how humour can be found by having music and action diametrically opposed. 

Working in the creative world has professions that many pupils may not even have thought of and the workshop opened eyes to the vast creative opportunities available to them.

It was inspiring to know that such a huge industry is all about being creative, being musical and having fun!
