Message from APRA
In addition to hosting some of the finest musicians and influential music industry professionals as part of the inaugural SONG SUMMIT SYDNEY music expo (April 3rd to 5th), S3 is also proud to offer workshops and panels for film and television composers or those with a special interest in screen music.
Composing music for film and television has always been a unique art form, which is central to the experience of viewing audiences everywhere. The composer must capture characters’ emotions, nuances of screenplay and plot, and help realise a director’s vision. S3 has recognised this specialised area and will present SCREEN SUMMIT SYDNEY, which will bring together an impressive array of film and television composers along with producers and industry experts.
Screen composers who will be lending their considerable talents to SCREEN SUMMIT SYDNEY include Francois Tetaz who wrote the award winning score for ‘Wolf Creek’, Nigel Westlake who is responsible for the iconic scores to films such as Babe and Miss Potter, Chris Neal, a composer with more than 40 years experience and composer and long time President of the AGSC (Australian Guild of Screen Composers) Art Phillips.
Contributing their collective wealth of knowledge from the business end of the film and television industry is broadcaster Andrew Urban (Urban Cinefile), Producer Emile Sherman (Sherman Pictures: Candy, Oyster Farmer, $9.99, Disgrace, Rabbit Proof Fence, The Night We Called It A Day), Chris Noonan (Director: Babe, Miss Potter) and Steve Rosser (CEO Fremantle Media).
With some fascinating panels including ‘Anatomy of a Screen Composer’ (with Nigel Westlake and Chris Noonan) and ‘Have I Got the Score for You’, SCREEN SUMMIT SYDNEY (as part of S3 on April 3rd – 5th) is a wonderful opportunity for songwriters interested in screen composition to glean some meaningful insights from key players in this community.
