SCORE IT! 2017 WINNERS ANNOUNCED
Score IT! is an annual state-wide film-scoring competition open to all secondary school students in Queensland. The competition challenges young composers to create an original composition to accompany a short film produced by the Griffith Film School.
Score IT! categories:
Based on year level, students compete in either Score IT! Junior or Senior by composing and recording a soundtrack using instruments of their choice. The more challenging Score IT! Plus is open to all secondary students, requiring composition for specific instruments and the submission of a written score.
Entrants were judged by an expert panel including QMF Artistic Director Katie Noonan, and award-winning screen composer and orchestrator Cameron Patrick, known for orchestrating films such as Star Trek Into Darkness, Jurassic World and Zootopia, as well as industry leaders from Griffith Film School, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and Queensland School of Film and Television.
Score IT! finalists are invited to take part in a series of composition workshops and masterclasses led by senior lecturers and practitioners from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, and a half-day workshop with top video and digital agency PixelFrame. The winning Score IT! Plus composition was performed by students from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.
