IMRO / RTÉ Seeking Filmmakers & Composers for Scoring For Film Programme
14 Sep 2018 :
The RTÉ Concert Orchestra and IMRO will amass the best of emerging Irish filmmakers and composers to work on an exciting collaborative project during 2018/2019.

Following on from the success of previous collaborative film scoring programmes, RTÉ and IMRO are now seeking applications from interested filmmakers and composers who would like to participate in this programme. The programme is in association with The Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) and Screen Training Ireland.

This initiative will provide emerging filmmakers and composers with an invaluable opportunity to enhance their skills through hands-on experience in a vital aspect of film post-production. It is also a rare opportunity to have a score composed and recorded for full orchestra. Each year, films featured in the initiative have gone on to win awards at various national and international film festivals, signalling the high quality of creative output of Irish filmmakers and film composers.

The focus of the project is a one day recording session in RTÉ studios in March 2019 with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra recording original scores for short film submissions selected for the initiative. Programme participants will be further supported through mentoring sessions and workshops with leading industry specialists.

Due to the limited number of places available there are a number of qualifying criteria for those wishing to take part:

Filmmakers

Submitted film projects for the initiative should require original scored music totalling between three and five minutes. Ideally the film should have a maximum duration of 10 – 15 minutes and should be close to or have completed picture lock. Once selected, the filmmakers will work with a composer, who has been selected through the process, who will create a full score for the film to be performed and recorded by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

All categories of film will be considered e.g. live-action drama, animation, documentary, experimental, etc. Ideally, the film projects submitted should be close to completion on editing. The use of temp tracks or “mood music” where score is required is allowed but not required.

Composers

1. Previous experience in scoring to picture (short film/advertisements etc.) desirable.

2. The ability to score for full orchestra is essential.

3. The ability to work to a tight deadline is also essential.

The closing date for submissions for the programme is 5pm Friday 28th September 2018.
