Title: Scoring for the Screen 
Composing music for film, television and interactive media presents an exciting and innovative creative practice for music makers. This talk presents the processes involved in creating a score from script to screen, including collaborations and technology needed to fulfil a project brief. It will also outline the potential avenues in becoming a media composer, opportunities involved and getting the gig as well as the composer's own path to working in the field.
