QUEENSLAND MUSIC FESTIVAL SEEKS YOUNG COMPOSERS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS TO ENTER STATE FILM SCORE COMPETITION

 

Budding Queensland high school composers are invited to create an original composition to accompany a short animated film produced by Griffith Film School, with winning entries to be performed by a live orchestra in July 2018.

 

Students keen to follow in the legendary footsteps of film composers such as Ennio Morricone and John Williams are encouraged to enter Queensland Music Festival’s (QMF) annual state-wide competition Score IT!, which opens  22 January and closes  18 May.

 

The three categories for entry are:

 

  • Score IT! Junior (year 7-10) will see students create a score for The Forest, the story of a young monk who must help a deer in order to restore peace to the forest. Score IT!

  • Senior (year 11-12) entrants will use The Poet and the King for inspiration, the story of a king who attempts to win the love of a court poet with a series of terrible poems. Score IT!

  • Plus (year 7-12) comes with the added challenge of composing for specified instrumentation and submitting a written score to Sweep, the story of the young chimney sweeper who rescues a cat to try and win a girl’s heart.


Entries will be judged by an expert panel including QMF Artistic Director Katie Noonan; award-winning screen composer Cameron Patrick, known for orchestrating films such as Spiderman: Homecoming, Zootopia, Jurassic World, UP, Jupiter Ascending, and Star Trek: Into Darkness, and industry leaders from

  • Griffith Film School
  • Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University
  • Queensland School of Film and Television and
  • PixelFrame

To enter go to the Qld Music Festival's website: qmf.org.au
