The steps that you need to complete successfully to participate are:
You are requested to compose a great melody, a memorable tune, one that a filmmaker would consider a Main Theme. With this task you are called to prove your skill into composing a melody that might instantly get imprinted in the memory of the audience and even make them hum it after a single listening...
You are requested to compose epic, powerful, grandiose, heroic music, without the use of any percussions, brass, woodwinds or choir but only with strings and any other acoustic instruments you may wish.
No electronic instruments of any kind are allowed to be used.
You are asked to compose the musical score for a key scene of a feature film, which is currently in pre-production. We will give you the script pages to read the scene you'll have to score, along with a brief from the director.
For the Oticons Faculty 2017 Edition, the movie project is "FRANKENSTEIN REC", based on the novel of the director himself.
NOTE: This task isn't about scoring "on picture" but getting inspired from the scene as written on the script! Any visuals given are only for inspiration regarding the atmosphere the filmmakers want to achieve.
