Short film music scoring (final project)

Yesterday at the end of our film scoring class, we got an exciting announcement for our final year project.

The assignment is, we have to compose music for a short film, and then perform the music live (small orchestra + sequencer) while the film is being played, and we have to conduct the small orchestra too. We all really excited about this project, but also worried at the same time. We’re worried coz none of us has ever done something like this.

Can’t imagine the long process that we will going through. Find the right movie, discussion with the director, composing the music, programming the sequencer, rehearsal with the small orchestra etc. The thing is, me and my classmates mostly are musicians, we play an instrument. We don’t have the network to the filmmakers yet.

So now we’re looking for short film (duration +/- 10mins), any genre, no music scoring yet, movie with or without dialogues are fine.

Is there any filmmaker here that wants to get the music done for his/her film? Maybe we can create something great together 😀
