Screenworks’ Screen Composing Bootcamp 2018

Screenworks’ Screen Composing Bootcamp 2018

Opportunities for emerging screen composers have never been easy to come by, and this is especially true for those living in regional areas. This is why Screenworks has partnered with APRA AMCOS to deliver an exciting new opportunity for two Northern Rivers early career screen composers to be mentored by two of Australia’s most successful screen composers.

Screenworks’ Screen Composing Bootcamp 2018 is all about enhancing the skillset of the participants through a six week mentoring program. Under the guidance of the brilliant composers Adam Gock and John Gray, participants will learn how to refine their skills to meet industry standards. They will have the opportunity to go to Sydney to work in, and observe the industry practices with their mentors.

Adam Gock is one of Australia’s most popular contemporary screen composers. In May 2006, Adam Gock and Dinesh Wicks established The D.A’s Office, a Music and Sound Design company for Film, Television, Radio and television commercials.

John Gray is a multi-award winning film composer, having written both orchestral and electronic scores for award winning feature films, documentaries and television – some of which have been finalists and winners at The Emmys, Sundance, Montreal, Venice, Berlin and Sydney international film festivals – to name a few.

Ken Crouch, CEO of Screenworks said, ‘this mentoring program has come together after years of running successful screen composing workshops in the Northern Rivers region.  We are delighted to now open an opportunity for two early career screen composers to get practical work experience and make some strong industry connections.’

This opportunity is exclusively available to early career screen composers living in the Northern Rivers region.  For more information and to apply visit
